Sneaker Focus: Nike Air Jordan 4 'Royalty'

Over the years Nike has realised how much Jordan’s have become not only iconic on the court but have become a fashion statement and a lifestyle sneak. Which is why there have been many premium iterations over the year which incorporates the court sneaker into a hybrid street ready pair of kicks. This Royalty iteration pays homage to the prominent dominance that the four exudes.

The fours have had amazing colourways drop in the past and have been used successfully in collaborations, specifically with Undefeated which seen 72 pairs go up for sale and eventually led to them being sold for up to $24,500!! Even 2-Chainz said they were too expensive for him. The Slim Shady’s J4’s – which sported Carhartt canvas uppers and custom sold for around $20,000 which is absolutely mental, but it shows that the 4’s are an icon to have such big resell prices and to receive such hype. Don't worry though these aren't as expensive coming in at £160!

Featuring a stealthy all black Suede upper that is a lot softer and richer than the typical Nubuck that features on the 4's, accompanied with sumptuous metallic gold accents hitting the wing inspired eyelets and branding, giving off that premium vibe that the Royalty deserves. Featuring the classic mesh panelling on the flanks. Finished off with a leather heel tab which reflects the lavish name.

Releasing on 04/02/17 at 08:00 am GMT in a full family size run so the whole squad can cop these.
