Raptors AJ4 hitting retailers 8/18.
Over the years Jordan Brand has released several NBA team-inspired Air Jordans (outside of the familiar Bulls colorways) including a "New York Knicks" Air Jordan 1, "Cavs" Air Jordan 4, "Pistons" Air Jordan 6, and a "Phoenix Suns" Air Jordan 8, just to name a few.
Next up is the Toronto Raptors inspired Air Jordan 4 that is now confirmed to release on Saturday, August 18. Just like the "Raptors" Air Jordan 7 that released in 2012, this upcoming sneaker features a black nubuck upper accompanied by hits of red and purple which is more in tune with their classic dribbling dino logo.
Early images revealed that this particular Air Jordan 4 colorway was originally supposed to be a Drake collab, as evidenced by his signature under the Jumpman on the tongue, though the retail version won't include any nods to Drake.
Look for the "Raptors" Air Jordan 4 to arrive at Jordan Brand retailers globally next month for the retail price of $190.
