Air Jordan IV “Blue Speckle” – Unreleased 1999 Sample
What would you get if you fused the original Air Jordan IV ‘White/Cement’ and the ‘Military Blue’? Chances are you’d get something very close to this unreleased sample of the Air Jordan IV Retro. This incredibly rare piece was created during the 1999 first-ever Retro release of the Air Jordan IV using the famous speckle-print detailing on the midsole and the eyelet ‘wings’ on the upper and composed with a classic White/Navy/UNC Blue colorway. However, it’s clear that this was scrapped in favor of the “Columbia Blue” colorway, which shares some identical features like the Jumpman on the heel-tab and the embroidered logo on the tongue. The version that actually did release introduced the leather perforated panel in place of the classic mesh and had far more Navy on the midsole with just minute hints of Columbia blue around the shoe. This is definitely a unique find and the seller only claims to have the left shoe, so take a look at the gallery below from adam837 on eBay.
