After a first look at the Air Jordan 4 Retro NRG “Raptors,” some keen-eyed fans noticed a small change that purportedly confirms Drake’s move to adidas. The revised Air Jordan 4 offers a black suede upper, accented with Raptors colors, officially dubbed “University Red” and “Court Purple,” in an ode to Drake’s beloved basketball team.
However, the tongue of the sneakers has been stripped of Drake’s signature, which originally appeared on the model made for the rapper. Instead, the general release will feature the usual Jumpman logo bereft of Drake’s name. Sneaker leak experts pointed this out as a clear indication of Drake’s switch to adidas.
Take a look at the original posts below. Let us know: is this a sign of things to come, or is it merely conjecture? In related Air Jordan 4 news, a release date has surfaced for the Travis Scott AJ4 “Oilers.”
