Virgil Abloh is back on his retro tangent, bringing us a new sail colored Air Jordan 4 Retro that will be releasing this Summer season.
Fresh off an Air Jordan 5 collaboration, Virgil Abloh will be releasing an Air Jordan 4 this Summer. Featuring a Sail colorway, the shoe is reminiscent of the upcoming Air Jordan 5 in Sail as well. So if you don’t like tan sandy sneakers, it may be time to try to find some love for the theme.
An official release date has yet to be disclosed, but July 25th appears to be the tentative drop date for these highly limited shoes. Recently, Virgil donated an autographed pair to be auctioned off for charity, raising over $100,000 towards key organizations that support the Black Lives Matter movement.
Prior to the COVID-19 situation, Nike had planned to release a full catalog of imaginative collaborations at the height of the Tokyo Olympics, done by the likes of Virgil Abloh, Yoon Ahn of Ambush, Matthew M. Williams, UNDERCOVER, and sacai. Although this Air Jordan 4 was not previewed at the brand’s Future Forum fashion show back in February, it was very much assumed that these would be available throughout the scheduled Games. Of course this year’s Olympics have been cancelled, but the Jordan release is fully expected to go down.
