Air Jordan Release Dates 2015: AJ 4 Retro ‘Legend Blue’, AJ XX9 'Gym Red' – Photos, Where to Buy, Price
After releasing the new Jordan Melo M11 last week, Jordan Brand will make noise again as the new colorways of the Air Jordan 4 retro and Air Jordan XX9 are set to hit the sneaker market this weekend.
The Air Jordan 4 Retro will be released in "Legend Blue" or the "Columbia" edition, which is officially listed as the White/Legend Blue-Midnight Navy colorway of this classic model.
This edition features a white-based upper part combined with midnight navy details along with legend blue lining and Jumpman logo. According to Nike, this is similar to the first edition that was released 16 years ago, but boasts much-improved details and materials.
"Originally released back in 1999, this Air Jordan 4 Retro colorway returns, remastered. A premium white tumbled leather upper is accented by Midnight Navy and Legend Blue," Nike said in a statement.
The Air Jordan 4 Retro "Legend Blue" will be released on Saturday, 10 a.m. EST, on Nike.com and select Nike retailers worldwide. Retail prices are set at $190 for men's sizes, $140 for gradeschool sizes, $80 for preschool sizes and $60 for toddler sizes. More photos of this shoe are available on this link.
Aside from this remastered edition of the Air Jordan 4 Retro, Jordan Footwear Vice President Dave Schechter said that fans should expect more remastering of retro sneakers this year.
"We are going to be remastering our whole retro line starting Spring 15," Schechter told Solecollector. "It's comprised of a couple different factors. One, we have the most highly qualified colleagues in Asia at the factory level who are working on our retro products. We have really high standards for production and quality controls. That's one big part of it, and that kicked in last year actually, so we've been doing that for a while."
Aside from the new colorway of one of the most popular retro sneakers, Jordan Brand will also receive a much-improved edition of the Air Jordan XX9 -- the company's flagship model last year.
The Air Jordan XX9 will come out in Black/White-Dark Grey-Gym Red colorway. It features a dark grey-based upper part combined with red laces and linings along with a white Jumpman logo. It is finished off with a black midsole and gym red outsole.
The new colorway of Air Jordan XX9 will hit shelves on Saturday on Nike.com with retail price set at $225 per pair. Check out the leaked photo of this new sneaker on this link from Solecollector.
