Raffles & Retailers: AFEW - amongst few - BTSN - END - END (US) - One Block Down - SHINZO Paris - solebox - SNKRS - SNS - StockX - Titolo After months of speculation this distinctively unique Union LA x Air Jordan 4 'Off Noir' finally has an official release date. Closeout September by adding this sneaker to your collection; releasing on September 30th at 08:00 BST!
A Union LA and Jordan collaboration is nothing out of the ordinary, with both brands having connected to create the 'Blue Toe' and 'Black Toe' Air Jordan 1 models in 2018. With bold contrasts and accents weaving into this Jordan 4, this sneaker is one that grows on you.
Rather than leather-the typical go-to for the Jordan brand-this silhouette is decked out in soft black suede that graces the upper. Bold white stitching makes this sneaker pop, combined with white mesh underlays and support wings at the bottom of the laces.
Red jumps out at you all over this sneaker; on the tongue, support wings at the top of the laces and on the black heel tab with additional teal blue detailing at the ankle and on the outsole. The upper sits atop an unusual bone coloured midsole and outsole. Maybe black would look better, but somehow Union and Jordan made this work.

The tongue; boy did it cause some controversy. Colour aside it was one thing people weren't keen on. But all can be solved with some scissors, undo the stitches to reveal a red Jumpman logo on a more familiar black tongue. How would you wear it, up or down?
Maybe the bar is in hell, but the ability to choose how you wear this sneaker and the attention to detail is the cherry on top for potentially another candidate for the top 10 releases this year.
This Union LA x Air Jordan 4 will also be releasing in 'Guava Ice' a pink colourway, so keep your eyes peeled for that. But for now, set your alarms and enter a raffle for this Union LA x Air Jordan 4 'Off Noir' dropping on September 30th!
