Nike SB x Air Jordan 4 “Sapphire Blue” Gets Sobering Update

If you are a fan of the Air Jordan 4, there have been plenty of reasons to be excited. Although the shoe is about to be 35 years old, it is still exceptionally popular. It is one of those shoes that is timeless. In 40 years from now, the Jordan 4 will probably still look very good on people. Overall, this is a testament to Tinker Hatfield and his exceptional contributions to the sneaker world. For years, he was able to create some amazing designs for Michael Jordan. While the Jordan 4 may not be his best, it is most definitely well within the top 5.

Recently, the Air Jordan 4 has been getting a couple of Nike SB collaborations. The color scheme that we all know at this point is the "Pine Green" offering that dropped recently. Subsequently, there is a sense that a "Bred" model could also be on the horizon. However, fans want more. This has led to a whole bunch of photoshop renderings and rumors. @zsneakerheadz on Instagram has been on top of these renderings, and one of the ones they have touted is the "Sapphire Blue," down below.

This Air Jordan 4 Is A No-Go

On the surface, this colorway looks absolutely fantastic. Firstly, we get some nice grey suede on the overlays. Secondly, the rest of the upper is covered in white leather. Additionally, there is a lot of blue on the midsole and the back heel. Finally, we get some gum on the outsole. Unfortunately, there is nothing that will be coming from this rendering. According to @zsneakerheadz, this shoe is officially not coming out. It is a sad reality for sneakerheads who had some high hopes for this potential new sneaker.

Hopefully, Nike will return with some new colorways of this SB x Air Jordan 4 collaboration. It has proven to be a fantastic merging of styles, and sneakerheads have taken a liking to it all. As always, let us know what you think of these sneakers, in the comments section down below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for the latest news and updates from around the sneaker world.
