Closer Look: Aleali May x Air Jordan 4 ‘Veterans Day’ PE Appears on Foot
Aleali May is fresh off an Air Jordan 1 CMFT collaboration, with an Air Jordan 14 Low the next silhouette in her sights, but it’s this camo-clad Air Jordan 4 that has piqued the most interest in recent times. Believed to be an exclusive Friends and Family colourway, the sneaker was actually first teased by Aleali on Veterans Day in 2020. We’d only just been treated to the first up-close imagery, and it looks like a few leakers have managed to get their hands on the rare pair.
The sneaker features a rip-stop nylon upper, covered in brown and green camouflage print. Meanwhile, there’s suede midsoles and heel tabs along with a purple quilted insole stamped with Aleali’s ‘A’ logo. Adding to the militaristic details is a removable velcro ‘Jumpman Compass’ patch, which replaces the standard ‘Flight’ branding on the tongues. The patch is a nod to the 4th Infantry Divisions’ combat service identification badge.
Unlikely to ever release to the public, this Aleali May x Air Jordan 4 is said to be a tribute to the designer’s father who served in the US Army from 1990 to 2013, fighting in the Gulf War during his tenure.
