Update: After decades of sticking to the original Air Jordan 4 design, Nigel Sylvester and Jordan Brand are ready to shake things up with the introduction of the Air Jordan 4 RM. A leaked image hit the net last month and Sylvester has just teased the new sneaker himself via the embedded Instagram video below. According to the latest report from Sneaker Files, the RM stands for “Remix” and Sylvester’s two colorways are expected to release on July 3 via Nike SNKRS and select retailers at a starting price of $150 USD. Stay tuned for updates as we eagerly await confirmation from Jordan Brand and be sure to review our initial breakdown below for more info.

Original Story: The Air Jordan 1 and the Air Jordan 4 are both legendary retro silhouettes that were once worn on NBA courts by Michael Jordan. However, there’s an important distinction in how the two adored designs are positioned today. The Air Jordan 1 has blossomed into a franchise — with countless iterations ranging from the platform-soled Air Jordan 1 Brooklyn to the sport-ready Air Jordan 1 Golf Mule. Meanwhile, the Air Jordan 4 exists in its original form, which has been reimagined with countless color arrangements and material compositions.

However, this is finally set to change as the previously-rumored Air Jordan 4 RM (Restomod) is set to arrive later this year. Initially rumored to be a one-off collaboration with Nigel Sylvester, a first look at an in-line pair courtesy of EldenMonitors has surfaced, with the page noting that it is one of eight pairs on the way. In addition to this, two collaborative colorways are expected to occupy spots in the lineup of eight. In our brief preview of the sneaker, it maintains the Air Jordan 4’s traditional sole unit while swapping out the upper for a low-top build that features a wrap-around cage and mesh overlay at the eyestays.

At the time of writing, we’ve yet to receive any confirmation from Jordan Brand that the Air Jordan 4 RM will be arriving this year. However, it’s currently expected to debut this holiday season via Nike SNKRS and select retailers at an unknown price point. Stay tuned for updates as additional colorways, including the rumored Nigel Sylvester collaboration, surface in the months to come.
