Model: Air Jordan 4 “Raptors”
Key Features: Black nubuck covers the majority of the sneaker’s upper, with purple and red detailing on the midsole, outsole, inside of the tongue, and on the tips of the lace cage. Drake’s signature is present on the tongue tag.
Release Date: Surprise-dropped on June 2
Editor’s Notes: Nike surprise-dropped the Drake edition of the “Raptors” Nike Air Jordan 4 on its SNKRS app yesterday. The sneaker features the rapper’s signature under the Jumpman on the tongue tag, a slightly tweak on the purple, red and black colorway which dropped previously in August 2018.
It remains unclear whether this release means Drake is back on team Jumpman, or if he still has plans to collaborate with adidas.
The sneaker sold out during its surprise-drop on SNKRS, but is available at resell platforms such as StockX. The drop came during the NBA Finals, in which the Toronto Raptors are battling against the defending champions, the Golden State Warriors.
