Football and Hoops Collide on the Paris-Saint Germain x Air Jordan 4POSTED ON:

Star Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar Jr may have departed from the greater Nike Inc umbrella to sign with PUMA, but Jordan Brand and PSG are rolling along uninterrupted by debuting a new Air Jordan 4 collaboration. Offering a refined color scheme that seemingly combines hoops and football in equal measures, this new take on Michael Jordan‘s fourth signature sneaker is designed to delight the Parisian club’s loyal fans.
Rich bordeaux accents on the midsole, eyelets, heel tabs and collar trim are the name of the game here, working with the white leather upper and various black details to provide an elegant, sport-centric look. The signature detail appears on the rear, where a large circular PSG crest replaces standard Jumpman branding and the heel tab swaps out its normal textured squares for a lined design. There’s also a “Paname” hangtag on the lateral forefoot. A black base under the AJ4’s signature mesh netting — itself done up in white — and black “wings” provide further contrast, with large black “Flight” tongue tags and “Ici C’este Paris” insole embellishments finalizing the style.
The Paris Saint-Germain x Air Jordan 4 will reportedly hit Nike SNKRS on October 10, though this has yet to be confirmed by the Swoosh. The MSRP is set at $225 USD.
