In 2005, Jordan Brand released two pairs of the Air Jordan IV (4) that featured an awe-inspiring laser graphic on the upper. The lasering method was first introduced by Mark Smith and The Laser Project, which featured this meticulous “tattooing” on the Nike Air Force 1, Nike Dunk Low, and then later on the Air Jordan XX and others. The special lasering was brought again to the Air Jordan IV in two colorways; both shoes were online exclusives, and those with the quickest draw with the mouse clicker came away with a pair of his/her own. This unreleased sample of the Air Jordan IV in white, varsity red, and midnight navy also features the same lasering; before the actual release of the Air Jordan IV Laser, a few samples of laser IVs were created – including one in a royal blue suede – so this varsity red suede colorway is presumably one of the scrapped ideas during that time. Said to be one of only three pairs in existence, you can check out the detailed images of this sample after the jump, and if you’ve got some serious cash to drop on this size 9 sample, pick up this pair now from thecoolshoeshine on eBay.
