We just got a look at the grade school-sized edition of the upcoming Doernbecher Freestyle collaboration, so how about a peek at the kids version of one of the original Air Jordan IV colorways? The Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘White Cement’ is one of the sneaker world’s pillars of excellence, a Tinker Hatfield-penned design that dropped in 1989 and has continued to satisfy buyers for well over two decades. This original white, grey and black edition can be credited with sparking the use of splatter print, but might be overshadowed by their black counterparts thanks to a certain shot that made Craig Ehlo a household name. We expect these in stores just after Valentine’s Day, so click through to see more angles and let us know how much you love the Air Jordan IV. via Air-Randy

Already touted as the ‘it’ Air Jordan Retro of next year, the Air Jordan IV White/Cement Grey has been causing an insurmountable buzz here on Sneaker News. There appears to be some faint speckling on the grey areas of the upper, but still not quite matching the dark black of the original. Also a bit out of place is the black section of the outsole which is sporting a grey rim along the bottom on these early samples. These are, as mentioned, a sample version of the White/Cement Grey (or Tech Grey to be more exact), so expect the released version to be a bit different from these. Another shot of these drool-inducing Air Jordans await you below so take a look and let us know if these are a must have for you. via Sole Fly.

It’s been quite a day for Sneaker News and the Air Jordan. We’ve already confirmed and showed you a sample of the Air Jordan X Chicago, brought you a look at a nubuck sample of the Air Jordan III Black/Cement, and confirmed the Air Jordan IV as the next Doernbecher Freestyle Air Jordan shoe. To cap off an exciting day, here’s a look at a sample of the Air Jordan IV in the White/Cement colorway, slated for an early 2012 release. This sample version features grey speckling on the midsole instead of the original black seen in the ’89 original and ’99 Retro. Sources say that the release version will also featured the black speckling, but it’s interesting to see these in another light, is it not? Check out the extra shot after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for more Air Jordan updates as they develop. via yotecity.

The first report of the return of the Air Jordan IV White/Cement was a not-so-clever hoax that spread throughout the internet, but confirmation of this release comes as no surprise as 2012 marks the 23rd Anniversary of the Air Jordan IV. The last time the White/Cement colorway hit stores was in 1999, just one year after Jordan’s retirement, and in that thirteen year span, you can expect a number of discrepancies between the ’99 and ’12 versions, starting with the logo on the heel. Expect a Jumpman logo prominently featured on the heel, as well as a synthetic leather upper – noticeably of lesser quality than the materials used from years ago. February 2012 is the projected month of this release, and you can certainly expect more Air Jordan IV releases for next year (perhaps an Air Jordan IV Premio?). Let us know if the Air Jordan IV White/Cement is a must-have for you, and stick with Sneaker News for more information as it develops.
