What's On My Shoe Rack: Air Jordan 4 'Tech Grey'


One of the hottest pairs of sneakers to own in 2015 is the “Remastered” Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Tech Grey’. The pair makes its reappearance more than 15 years after the original release in 1999, a subtle insinuation of how old you've become since its initial launch. 

Whether or not you are a sneaker fan, you’ve got to admit that this is one neat design. The shoes are a play on the premium tumbled leather upper with black speckle accents on the sole, giving it the nickname 'Oreo'. Borrowing other features of the Air Jordan 3, it has a mid-cut, sculpted insole, a padded tongue and collar with the addition of an invisible Air unit.

Fun fact about this symmetry, Michael Jordan once made one of his greatest shots in history at the 1989 Playoffs where he scored a jumper with 6 seconds left to give the Chicago Bulls a win - wearing a pair of Air Jordan 4. Evidently, the 'Oreo' was made for more than looks.
