Every time Jordan Brand releases a retro model, harsh criticisms leveled against the shoe’s faithful portrayal of the original are inevitable. Well, Jordan heard the complaints and has done something to quiet the critics. Starting spring 2015 Jordan will begin releasing remastered retro models, which utilize new processes, materials, and molds to create a more sophisticated shoe that come as close to replicating the original as possible. Here we see the remastered Air Jordan IV “Teal” with a premium leather upper done in striking shades of teal and blue, accented by black detailing around the midsole and heel. “Teal” appears to be a new colorway for Jordan, not a reproduction of a particular shoe in the brand’s history. It’s a refreshing change of pace, especially on a premium retro model – a subtle indicator that while Jordan may never abandon its past, it has one eye on the the future as well. Look for the remastered Air Jordan IV “Teal” to start hitting select retailers March 14 for $190 USD.
