Where To Buy The Jordan 4 Royalty Jordan Brand is well aware of the lifestyle implications that their iconic signature series has in today’s fashion world. That’s why we’ve seen so many Pinnacle and Premium takedowns in the past year while the brand has also expanded their collaborative efforts with a number of influential designers. The Air Jordan 4 Royalty pays tribute to the elevated status of Michael Jordan’s fourth signature model with a luxurious full black nubuck construction while Metallic Gold accents hit the wing-inspired lace eyelets and branding throughout. What results is a pair that will be hard to pass up when it releases on February 4th, 2017. The Air Jordan 4 Royalty also features a black-on-black mesh netting on the side panel for a more traditional construction while the original ‘Flight’ branded patch on the tongue contrasts in Metallic Gold.

Next week, one of the more talked-about Air Jordan Retro releases of 2018 will officially hit stores. While the shoes itself are a very straightforward colorway treatment inspired by the Toronto Raptors, the origin of the concept is a bit controversial as it traces back to Drake, the Toronto-based superstar that was set to jump ship from Jumpman into the hands of adidas. However, the beef with Pusha-T and the release of the seething diss-track titled “The Story of Adidon” led to some insurmountable tension between Champagne Papi and two of adidas’ most valuable partners in the entertainment industry, causing a chain reaction of events that led to the Canadian crooner wearing Air Jordans in his most recently revealed music video. Still, there was never any official announcement by Drake or adidas regarding a partnership, but based on recent events, it looks apparent that the deal that never happened will never happen. That said, this upcoming release of the Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” will have even more ties to its hometown hero, so only time will tell just how Jordan Brand will tell the story behind this pair of Air Jordan shoes. Below is a list of shops that will release the Raptor Jordan 4s on August 18th, so check the list and stay tuned for updates. Photos courtesy of Titolo.
