Updated December 13th, 2016: The Air Jordan 4 “Motorsports” releases on March 26th, 2017 for $190.
Jordan Motorsports was a short-lived endeavor from a post-retirement Michael Jordan, but his love of motorbikes did give us a number of awesome and rare retro releases in the mid-2000s inspired by his Wisconsin-based racing imprint. Now we have word that the Air Jordan 4 Motorsports will be coming back in remastered retro form in 2017, but with one major change: the Mars Blackmon logo on the heel panel is noticeably absent in the first preview shots from Instagrammer Pinoe77.
The rest of the coming Air Jordan 4 “Motorsports” retro seems to keep traditionalism in-check with a smooth white leather upper accented by contrasting black shades on the tongue and mesh side panel ventilation unit while that vibrant royal blue accent hits the lining, Jumpman branding, and more. It makes sense that the Jumpman will be bringing this rare pair back given that the limited run of Jordan 4 Motorsports last released in 2007.
