Italian sneaker brand Giuliano Galiano has issued premium leather sneakers for years, posting photos of rappers and celebrities wearing its sneakers on Instagram. However, a new iteration of one of its styles looks awfully similar to the Air Jordan 4.

For Spring/Summer 2018, Giuliano Galiano has issued its “Power” sneakers with a white grain leather upper, accented with gold eyelets and dark ostrich leather. Several design elements recall the Air Jordan 4, including the shape of the midsole, leather lace surround, slightly serrated outsole, layered midfoot detailing and forefoot stitching. However, the “Power” shoe does feature a sleeker tongue, toned down heel and tanned leather on the inside, as expected for a lifestyle shoe that wasn’t designed for on-court action.

The “Power” sneaker retails on Farfetch for $394 USD. What do you think? Is this a purposeful copy or a thoughtful homage? Let us know your thoughts. Meanwhile, Jordan Brand is already queueing up another denim AJ4 before the Levi’s collaboration has even released.
