The upper of the latest Jordan 4s in cream color is made of polished leather and is completed by the overlays made of nubuck. The bright color scheme is further enhanced by white details. Wings and Jumpman round out the classic Jordan 4 design of the Air Jordan WMNS 4 RETRO “Shimmer”.
A white midsole, as well as the mesh, laces, and lining are also done in white, contrasting the soft brown tones of the upper. In addition to the white laces, there are also pink laces. A second option that brings in another contrast. The wings on the side and the lace locks are slightly translucent, giving the upper even more room to shine.
Midsole and heel reinforcement are kept in a darker brown tone and contrast with the rest of the upper. On the heel, there is a Jumpman of the same color. There is also a Jumpman logo on the tongue. The logo is held in metallic silver and rounds off the design.
We linked up with Berlin-based photographer Meklit Fekadu (@meklit.fekadu) to explore the beauty of working with friends and talk about diversity and equality in a male-dominated field of work. The WMNS Air Jordan 4 Retro “Shimmer” represents exactly that – the beauty of diversity, which can be found in the different earthy tones of the silhouette. The acceptance of one’s skill set. Doing what you love and what you really want without giving in to social pressure.
