The shoe shared many similarities to its predecessor, the Air Jordan 3. It featured a visible Nike Air Air Jordan 1 Max cushion, an enlarged tongue, and NIKE AIR logo on the heel, but it also introduced Air Jordan 4 Womens a netting on the upper and plastic lace eyelet wings to reduce weight. Hatfield's principles of weight reduction were commonly seen across all his designs - including basketball, running, and training. By comparison, blacks are used much more heavily, dressing most of the upper and bottom; even the 23 embroidered front and center follows suit, matching the adjacent laces, lining, tongue, and the like. The midsole, the chenille patch, and the portion of the strap branded with AIR JORDAN, however, are much more bold, flaunting shades of gold and yellow. This particular release also comes attached with a special edition shoebox that sees the OG-style packaging in white and volt, while Air Jordan 4 a pre-worn aesthetic is applied via the cracked leather on the collar and the faded laces - perhaps a precursor to the upcoming Reimagined Air Jordan 1s. By no means is this a knock on the Bio Hack which debuted on the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG as part of the Tokyo-inspired series of Air Jordans, but it's rather obscure considering the wealth of directions in the Air Jordan 1 family. They also have deep respect and love for the icon, says Georgina James, Senior Creative Director, Nike Women's Footwear. The graphic, featuring jagged mountains that transition into free-flowing summits, unites the Chuck 70, Chuck Taylor All Star in high, low top and platform versions, a new slide, as well as the Run Star Hike for the first time.
