Air Jordans and Nike SB heads, we’ve all been eagerly awaiting the release of one of the most anticipated designs in sneakerhead culture: The Nike SB x Air Jordan 4 “Sapphire Blue”, an iconic collaboration that was rumoured to be released in late 2023/early 2024.
Unfortunately, it is now confirmed, according to @zsneakerheadz, that this highly sought-after silhouette will not be dropping as previously speculated or expected.
We’d understand if you were feeling gutted right about now, but don’t worry – there are still plenty of heaters on the horizon! In this article, we’ll look at some other dope sneakers from Jordan and Nike SB that can save your hype game.
The Nike SB x Air Jordan 4 in the colourway “Pine Green” has been the talk of the town recently, and it’s no wonder why! Its sleek colour-blocking has earned it front-running status for Sneaker Of The Year 2023, making both Air Jordan fanatics and SB heads excited for its rumoured release.
Reportedly, the colour-blocking is just like that of the original release, with pine green replaced by this attractive blue shade. There have been no other reports on another public release of the Nike SB & Jordan 4 so far, with Nike SB themselves confirming that the all-black wear-test won’t make its way to stores.
