Jordan Brand will collaborate with Nike SB on an Air Jordan 4 that’s scheduled to release in March 2023, a sneaker industry source tells Complex. News of the collaboration was first reported by Nice Kicks on Monday.
No photos of the upcoming project have leaked, and the image shown here is of the retro “Bred” Air Jordan 4 from 2019.
According to Nice Kicks, the Nike SB x Air Jordan 4 will have a heel tab bearing the Nike SB logo instead of the Nike Air or Jumpman logos. A source tells Complex that the SB-style Air Jordan 4 will be retooled for skateboarding.
Years before the first Nike SB x Air Jordan project released, there were rumors about Nike’s skateboarding division connecting with Michael Jordan’s Nike sub-brand. The intra-Nike collaboration became a reality in 2014 via an Air Jordan 1 designed in partnership with skateboard artist and photojournalist Craig Stecyk. Subsequent collaborations between Jordan Brand and Nike SB have included wear-away pairs like the black and white Lance Mountain versions, which also released in 2014, and the “NYC to Paris” and “LA to Chicago” colorways from 2019.
