All the King’s Men

The loyal subjects of the King of Basketball, Michael Jordan, wait for the release of Air Jordan IV Royalty with bated breath. Royalty rises to rule February as the first Jordan release of the month, and might be the crowning achievement of the season. Royalty rides out into the country on a pale horse, its white out sole. It has a lean, muscular look as it supports the strong, silent mastery of the dark knight upon it.

As if that’s not stately enough to celebrate Jumpman, Jordan is memorialized in a large golden silhouette on the tongue and on the back. The royal portraits become points of focus on the sneaker, which sets the tone of it to regal and exquisite.

Royalty’s Suede Swagger

For the Jordan loyalist, it’s no surprise why everyone wants to roll up in the Air Jordan IV Royalty. The new texture experiment on the Air Jordan IV features a premium suede upper, which smooths over the sneaker like the red carpet for royals. Royalty rocks the new school with some old school swagger.

The colorway stays simple and elegant, so the focus remains on the newly adopted texture. Sure, black doesn’t change much, but the matte presentation of the upper gives the Air Jordan IV a clean cut look. The understated simplicity sits well with Jordan fans, who know less in more in Royalty.

Getting Crowned

Gold embellishments turn anything into a royal attraction, but Jordan Brand takes it to the next level with its gold lace eyelets. Just like Michael Jordan, they’re playing tricks on our eyes. The southernmost eyelets envelope black laces, thus creating the silhouette of an actual crown. It doesn’t overwhelm or dominate this Air Jordan IV, though. Instead, it makes a simple statement that speaks volumes about the wearer: with Royalty, kings walk among us.
