Air Jordan 4 NRG “Raptors”

The Air Jordan 4 NRG Raptors is a new colorway on the silhouette this year, but it’s inspired by the classic AJ 7 Raptors, utilizing the Toronto Raptors color scheme. Covered in a Black nubuck throughout the majority of the upper, University Red and Court Purple accents are applied on the eyelets, inner tongue, midsole, and outsole. The Jumpman branding on the tongue has been blacked out in an embossed suede for a premium look, while the speckling on the midsole add some depth to the shoe.

As a nod to the original Air Jordan 7 Raptors colorway, Jordan Brand will be releasing a matching Air Jordan 4 during the spring season.Dressed in a Black, University Red, and Court Purple color scheme. This Air Jordan 4 features a Black suede upper paired with Purple and Red contrasting accents. A speckled midsole and Black and Red rubber outsole completes the design.

Devoid of any affiliation with the Canadian rapper Drake, the Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” has finally received an official release date and is set to touch down next month. Leaked official images of the shoe actually revealed that there were plans for the sneaker to come equipped withe Drizzy’s signature on the tongue tab. Dressed in the same colors as the Air Jordan 7 “Raptors”, this color scheme is not actually inspired by the Team in the North, as that original pair made its debut three years before the Raptors even became a part of the Association. While old school sneakerheads and NBA historians will be stubborn to call these by their “Raptor” monicker, the majority of the world will opt to call them as such. Black nubuck makes up for the vast majority of this sneaker’s real estate, while Court Purple and University Red provide the supporting details. Enjoy another detailed look at the newest Jordan 4 below and mark your calendars for its August 18th release date.
