The 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup is set to tipoff on August 31st. With Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum set to lead the USA squad on their quest for gold. To commemorate the occasion, Jordan Brand is set to release a special colorway of the Air Jordan 4 Retro. This is the second release we’ve gotten in celebration of the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup, as we received an Air Jordan 12 not long ago.
Much like that AJ12, this AJ4 is perfect for any sneaker rotation. Coming dressed in Gym Red, the upper of the shoe is complemented by Obsidian and Metallic Gold accents. The usual netting on the sides of the AJ4 have been replaced with a collage inspired the national flags of the nations competing in the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup. Because we all know that ball is life, a “For the Love of the Game” label has been added inside the tongues of the shoe.
