While Jordan Brand is continuing to obsess over the precious AJ III elephant print they are leaving the door open for customizers to beat them to the punch using their next models signature print: AJ IV cement gray speckle. Any true Jordan IV fan will know the heel tabs, wings, and midsoles were given a bit of detail against a mostly white and black combination on the 1989 release.
In essence of the “Flip” concept JB used on an Air Jordan III model, customizer PKZuniga switched the print from the midsole to cover the entire white upper on this AJ IV retro release. In fact he even kept the wings and heel tabs with the print but gave them a new coating of paint that was a lighter gray closer to the original release. The midsole areas were painted white and black along with the midpanel and tongue netting getting a new look in black. JB should either be kicking themselves for not coming up with this idea…or at least not releasing them soon enough.
