What do you do with an original pair of Jordans that is falling apart and way beyond wearable? Well, you could always dip them in bronze and give extend their lifespan by quite a bit. That’s the tactic taken by the owner of this, an original Air Jordan IV whose colorway is obscured by the metallic treatment. Pros: they’re much easier to clean and you don’t have to worry about them cracking or creasing any further. Cons: they likely way a ton and…good luck actually wearing them. See this pair of metal cast Jordans with us after the click and then bid on the oddball collectors item from raidermarkmark on eBay.

Yeah I totally apologize for the comments guys. Everybody deserves a opinion. And there are aspects of them I don't like either. These were fully dipped though,so they are stiff. And they weigh 5-10 pounds. Done for display only, about 15 years ago. Just somethin I really want too keep,especially after all the love today. But I wanted more exposure,so people could see them and the possibilities of there own. If you choose too bronze.
I get you, just remember that you don't get a second chance to make a first impression. EBay will get you noticed, but social media is an even better way to get yourself out there.
These woud make a great paperweight/ novelty desk item in some high end office or something like that.
This is Raidermarkmark. Huge thanks too Sneakernews for doin this piece on my shoes. One of the best feelings since I been collecting. Has for some of the lames who always have an excuse for why they wouldn't buy these,that's fine with me. Because you probably could afford them anyways. If your concerned about the creasing and use of the shoe before bronzing that's understandable. Just hangout for the next General release Jordan,so you can match your boyfriend at the club. Just don't be a whiner,because I'm really in no hurry too sell these. I posted them for this exact reason. Too have a badass website and true Jordan fans too get a look at these. Not for the money,I'm doin quite alright. Thanks for the love tho everybody,made my day! Raidermarkmark.
@Raidermarkmark cut it out already aint nobody trying to hear your BS man anyone can get their kix dipped y buy yours. just saying
I'm really not tryin too get rid of them. That's why I put a high price in them. Just wanted people too check them out so used eBay for exposure. And look what happened,they end up on 5+ sneaker websites. Yeah you can do the same thing,but will you and can you. Thanks for the comments tho,I'm open too opinions.
@Raidermarkmark i already have my baby flights dipped so yeah.
if jordan gave yall muhhfuckas some beat up js yall take em n put em on a shelf yall are the dumbest bitches ever so what if their beat their bronzed it wouldnt even matter if they beat or brand new you cant wear em just dumb af nun of you bitches have a brain
@Cpack put it on display
@Cpack look at it i guess
@Raidermarkmark No sir, champions earn trophies
@Raidermarkmark Yeah they're there, and they're gonna stay there. Nobody's gonna be dumb enough to buy this shit. Because clearly they're doing SO well on ebay with your 0 bids.
Lhh well like I said in the auction,I'm in no hurry too get rid of them. Money is really not a problem for me. Maybe it is for you,but not me LL. They do have 35 watchers,and a offer of $1000 so far. So maybe you should follow my lead next time instead of runnin your mouth. I put them on there for show,not with the intensions of selling them. Or listening too a hater run his mouth,who probly is building a weak collection under the roof of his parents house. What's for dinner Pops? Lhh.
@Raidermarkmark The fact that you're even desperate enough to sell a pair of bronzed shoes means that you clearly need the money so you can front all you want. You better pray that someone is retarded enough to buy these so you can keep the lights on. This article on your piece of shit shoes will be the highlight of your life pion. Kudos for sneakernews for having sympathy for this peasant. And still 0 bids.
@Raidermarkmark I don't do social networking you insecure, irrelevant flea. I flick you. I was always told the best way to deal with attention hungry children is to ignore them, so you can hold your breath until you turn blue you'll get no other response from me. You're nobody to me.
Your right,just didn't like some the comments. But your right,these aren't for everybody. And I should be open for every opinion. Thanks for the advice,Mark.
Raidermark I don't see why you would come on here attacking people who have an opinion on your work. You come off as petty.You said at the top you did it cause its something you've been wanting to do. That's cool but don't expect everyone to understand your vision or the point of making these. Personally I think it's pretty cool but I wouldn't spend any money on it, not taking away from it just an opinion.
