A revered icon of both basketball and hip-hop culture, the ‘Air Jordan 4′ has a long line of storied colourways in its 32-year history. One of the most remarkable ones, the ‘Black Cat’ is inspired by Michael Jordan‘s on-court nickname. The sneakers are covered in a stealthy black hue and are a very accurate reproduction of the OG pair from 2006. The monochromatic silhouette of durable nubuck with breathable mesh across the uppers and the iconic ‘wings’ for additional Euro-stepping support all sit on a responsive ‘Air-infused’ sole unit. The design is completed with a graphite-on-black ‘Jumpman’ on the tongue and a glossy blackout logo on the heel.

Jordan Brand is a signature shoe and athletic wear brand owned and created by the legendary basketball player Michael Jordan. Signed first by the American sportswear giant Nike in 1984, who subsequently granted his signature line, when he was still unproven as a rookie in marketability and professional competition. The original ‘Air Jordan 1’ sneakers were produced exclusively for the basketball player and designed by Peter Moore, Tinker Hatfield and Bruce Kilgore. Today, the brand possesses significant cultural weight in the streetwear culture, proven through its yearly flagship shoe and apparel releases, each garnering tremendous reception from the media, industry and public.
