The fan favorite ‘Cool Grey’ Air Jordan 4 Retro returns in 2019.
The ‘Black/Cement’ was one of the first half of 2019’s most anticipated general releases. But will the ‘Cool Grey’ Air Jordan 4 be just as desired?
Back in 2004, the Air Jordan 4 ‘Cool Grey’ was an instant hit. The shoe sold out in my area very quickly despite being a new look on the Air Jordan 4. This ‘Cool Grey’ concept was made popular by the Air Jordan 11 Retro and Air Jordan 9, so seeing the colorway on the 4 was icing on the cake for most Jordan fans.
The 2019 edition of the shoe looks better than the original release, believe it or not, as the shoe itself is closer to the OG AJ4. Its side panel netting is now facing in a more accurate direction while the lace crown toward the front of the shoe has the additional little plastic pieces. There is a Jumpman on the heel, something that new generation “sneakerheads” may not be a fan of. For those of us that have been here for a while, it looks pretty normal by now.
Materials look solid, as does the shape of the shoe, but we’ll see how models vary after full scale production pairs are in-hand. As of now, the ‘Cool Grey’ durabuck looks great.
I’ve never had a chance to own a pair of the Air Jordan 4 ‘Cool Grey’; I couldn’t afford them back in 2004, so this will (hopefully) be my first pair. The Air Jordan 4 ‘Cool Grey’ is currently scheduled to release on August 3 for $190.
