This week has been an interesting one in the world of luxury sneaker copycats, as Karl Lagerfeld’s New Balance lawsuit might have thrown a wrench in the game. Apparently not slowing down is Hender Scheme, whose premium leather remix of the Air Jordan 4 just surfaced. If you’re unfamiliar, the Ryo Kashiwazaki run brand has been at this for a minute, rebuilding silhouettes like the Nike Air Force 1 High, the adidas Micropacer, the New Balance 1300, and more. Continue reading to see some of the other pairs and tell us in the comments if you’re feeling the Hender Scheme approach.
@DameDollasSPK_ really? I would kill them, I think their a little more feminine anyway .
@barelysoburr_ yeah I think they are too that's why I don't like em like that
Not fresh! I'm sure the leather is fine quality, but the choice of cuts color and style is Garbo! Anyone can take apart a retro and rebuild with different materials. Its all about making it look like JB could've made them, but you know they didn't cuz they're just way too nice. Personally, the OG Oreo & Columbia are about as nice as can be! What would make a good rendition of them would be to change the colors and add personalized stitching! Or use that Euphoria Nubuck for an entire upper on a IV! That would be Money!
@sneakernews horrible colour, like baby sick or sumit
Looks like shit, leather in the midsole appears that it was cut by a four year old and the stitching is not even done
They aren't even real. There's a company that makes bland simple fakes. Those Jordan's will go for about 700 bucks
Dope! Color scheme chic. Very high in look. They look as if they are competing with Balenciaga, louboutin etc.. Rather then performance shoe companies. Love them.
Well, they do cost 4 or 5 times the price....and are pretty much infinitely more exclusive....so it really isn't that funny...
@sneakernews je kiff
@sneakernews ugly, y'all can have it
@sneakernews where can I pick these up ?
it's sad when other companies make your shoe way better than you can. step it up in materials AND in silhouette shape, jb these faux'rs are COLD
@greghall024 ya but are you tryna spend $800 or $1000 every time you buy a pair of kicks? didnt think so.. i agree JB could step it up but you do have to pay for quality
