Another Look: The Air Jordan 4 ‘Shimmer’ Delivers Subtle ShineRelease: 3 September 2021
Set to be one of the more popular drops from the Jordan Brand 2021 Fall lineup, the Air Jordan 4 comes through in a ‘Shimmer’ colourway, arriving in women’s sizes. The colourway was first teased way back in 2020, and more pics are continuing to hit our feeds in the lead-up to the release. The latest look shows off the pair in natural lighting, letting the subtle lustre take centre stage.
If you were a fan of the Off-White x Air Jordan 4, you’ll be pleased. The colourway will feature a neutral-hued combination of ‘Shimmer’, ‘Bronze Eclipse’, ‘Orange Quartz’, and ‘Metallic Silver’. The upper will be covered in different nude tones, coming through in a slightly different shade to the ‘Sail’ featured on Virgil Abloh’s AJ4 hype machine. Additionally, there’s a shiny Jumpman logo on the tongue, as opposed to the traditional Jumpman patch, adding a welcome change-up for the tried-and-true look. Down below, there’s a white midsole with a translucent outsole done in the same nude tones borrowed from the upper.
While this ‘Shimmer’ colourway won’t have all the Off-White embellishments, those with more minimal tastes will no doubt appreciate the cleaner aesthetic – and the wider availability, of course.
A release date has been rumoured for September 3, 2021, with confirmation set to arrive in the coming weeks.
