Last weekend marked the release of a pair that I was most excited for! I'd like to introduce you to the newest addition to my family (:
Air Jordan IV GS 'Ultraviolet'
It was quite a shock to see them in person. All the product photos I had seen prior to the release showed the purple to be a lot more blue-based, when it's actually a red-based violet in person. The accents were a signature aspect of this shoe, so the color difference made it seem like an entirely different sneaker!
I really like the balance of colors on these kicks. Just the right amount of purple accents, and the black adds the perfect touch.
I like how the Jumpman's in white--it's a nice contrast with the purple speckles!
I think I'm done with Jordan 4's for this year. It'd be nice to get the Voltage Cherry 4's as well, but I had to pick one and I went for these. These screamed my name when I saw them, and the color-blocking on the Voltage Cherry 4's didn't have the same effect on me.
Speckled midsole and visible air unit...
Another look at the 'wings'...
Now before I end this post, I'd like to make note of the new Jumpman boxes!
I'm liking these boxes a lot. In my opinion, the cardboard feels a lot sturdier. Only time will tell how well these hold up.
They switched up the labels and added other subtle touches to the overall packaging.
Here's my favorite part:
They added tabs to the side of the box that keep the lid from flopping open unnecessarily. It's quite ingenious, really!
