The recently released “Sapphire” SB x Air Jordan 4 has gained popularity among original fans of the silhouette due to its improved shape, featuring a sharper toe box. The rubber wings and heel tab have also made a comeback, providing a unique tactile experience that caters to both skating and comfort. Notably, the new edition differs from its predecessor through the introduction of blue accents, replacing the earlier pine green ones. Blue accents have been popular in the Air Jordan 4 line, as seen in previous versions like the “Military Blue” in 2012 and the “Motorsport Blue” in 2017. As a result, sneaker enthusiasts are more familiar with the “Sapphire” color scheme.
In contrast to the previous “Pine Green” version, the upcoming colorway is expected to be exclusively available at skate shops, rather than at Jordan Brand outlets. As for release dates and sizing options, fans will have to wait for official updates.
