Detailed Look // Air Jordan 4 “Raptors”
Originally made for Drake.
These Air Jordan 4 NRG ‘Raptors’ were originally intended for a Jordan Brand x OVO release. Of course, Drake has left the brand as part of a sneaker free agency due to creative disputes at Oregon – which is not the first time this has been reported.
You’ll notice Drake’s name on the tongue – the same theme as Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 4 ‘Houston Oilers’. Both pairs were intended to pay homage to each rapper’s home teams.
Now that Drake is potentially moving on to adidas, this release will not be happening. Jordan Brand have instead replaced the tongue labels with suede patches (see further below).
Stay tuned for more info on both this pair and Drake’s potential move to adidas.
