First Looks // Air Jordan 4 “Where the Wild Things Are”
When it comes to kids’ footwear, Jordan Brand often expands its influence. While adult options tend to look inward at Mike’s storied career, kids-exclusives tend to take from childhood fascination; the recent Ice Cream-flavored pack of Jordan 1 Lows and Mids and the upcoming DIY Air Jordan 4 are prime examples. For Holiday 2021, the brand will tribute a classic children’s book from 1963 written by Maurice Sendak for this special girls-exclusive Air Jordan 4 “Where the Wild Things Are” release.
Dawn-up by @zSneakerheadz in Photoshop, the leaker gives us a fairly accurate rendition of the expected release, which is tipped to arrive anchored in earthy beige and brown hues. Nubucks appear to make up the majority of the construction, though there is a hint of suede at the tongue and ankle. Vibrant wings and eyelets arrive in maroon and lime green respectively, while white midsoles house brown accents. Just how these will link into the world-renouwned storybook remains to be seen, but we’re sure that those details will follow through over the course of the year.
Update 08.20.21 // First looks at the kids-exclusive Air Jordan 4 “Where the Wild Things Are” have arrived via @zsnekaerheadz and @brandon1an. Differing slightly in hue and textile from the original mock-up, the pair arrives in a fairly light cream-beige and brown, with plush fur collars and a slew of colorful mismatched eyestay accents. Insoles alternate in color too, and the pair is completed by a sole unit of white, brown, and light gum.
Grab a look for yourself here below, and look for these to land in Gradeschool, Preschool, and Toddler sizes on November 5th.
This pair is just one of an extensive lineup of Air Jordan releases previewed for the year ahead, all of which you can check out here on our comprehensive list of Air Jordan Release Dates for 2021.
