Winter’s snow, slush, and sleet can be hell for sneakerheads who love their Air Jordans, as the inclement climate is undoubtedly rough on any sneaker, let alone a classic like the Air Jordan 4. However, Jordan Brand is presenting a solution to the problem, as they’ve given the AJ4 a brand-new “Winter” makeover. Dressed in a bold blue color scheme with black and red accents, these 4s certainly call to mind memories of Eminem‘s ultra-exclusive Air Jordan 4 Encore, but differentiate themselves substantially with their materials. The underlays and throat swap out plastic netting for a pockmarked synthetic material, while the tongue features a rubberized construction and the liner offers a wooly, shaggy fabric for extra warmth. Black wings and black midsole detailing finalizes the look. This new design will release on December 21st with a slightly hiked retail price of $200 USD to allot for its premium construction, so enjoy a first look right here in the meantime.
