Jordan Brand has been putting a very noticeable effort into more luxurious 2016 Jordan Shoes. Looking to continue that trend, the AJ 4 Premium “Obsidian” is a high-end take on an all-time classic. The entire upper of this sneaker will be draped in high grade leather, including the sock liner.Following the previous Premium AJ 4 release, “Black Pony Hair,” this isn’t a shoe for the budget minded.
The first thing that catches my eye is the attention to detail placed on the New Jordans 2016 colored upper. Take for example the stitching on the toe, that’s something we rarely see on the Jordan 4. How about the quilted leather stitching placed on the side panels, heel and tongue? That’s pretty cool too! The leather tag and embossed branding on the tongue and heel. Leather laces? Sweet!Leather heel tab, lining and insole. Check. How about the copper accents located on the studded heel tab, eye stays and custom hang tag.Enjoy the official images below of the “Draft Day” Nike Kobe 11 in white, court purple and blue lagoon.
Kobe Bryant calls the Jordan 5 Low Fire Red his favorite Air Jordan shoe of all-time, so it’s a fitting application of AJ3 on the Kobe 11, which makes use of signature details like the grey leather tongue and the Nike logo on the heel. Kobe, who has been a fan of Air Jordans since childhood, notes Tinker’s simplicity and ability to listen to the athlete as the keys to his design achievements.A general release, look out for them at select Nike accounts worldwide on Thursday, April 28th, 2016.
