Like them or not, Jordan Brand's latest Lab series model will be hitting shelves very soon.

Combining the distinctive patent leather detail synonymous with the XI and outfitting the entire Air Jordan IV's upper with the shiny material, the 11Lab4 was born. From these official pictures, they actually look pretty dope. While the all-patent leather upper might be too gaudy for some, this latest Lab model is gives the IVs a very sleek and somewhat, formal appearance. With prom season on deck, it wouldn't be surprising to see younger sneakerheads pairing these with their tuxedos. If given a choice between patent leather dress shoes and these, I'm running with the Labs all day.

If you plan on copping, make sure you have Saturday, April 25, circled on your calendars and $250 at your disposal.
