In-Hand Look: The Air Jordan 4 ‘Shimmer’ Finally Gets IRL PicsRelease: 3 September 2021
A perennial mainstay of the Jordan Brand lineup, the Air Jordan 4 continues to be a force in 2021, coming through in a ‘Shimmer’ colourway. Set to arrive in women’s sizes, the colourway was first teased way back in 2020, and it has taken a while for shots of the real shoe to surface. Nevertheless, the first in-hand look is now here, and the actual sneaker is just what we expected.
Sharing similarities to the Off-White x Air Jordan 4, 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.
No official details have been revealed, but a release date has been rumoured for September 3, 2021. ,
