Pros

Ever seen sneakers glow in the dark? Well the new Air Jordan 4 pair, made in collaboration with graffiti artist Kaws, do. The special edition all-black colorway features a glow-in-the-dark outsole that will be a show-stopping when playing on the court at night. This pair is identical with the more regular grey colorway, both of which feature premium suede uppers for a sophisticated appeal.

Cons

Kaws is a well-known graffiti artist and one would think that his collaborative products would feature a lot of colors. Unfortunately, his take on Air Jordan 4 is monotone to a very boring degree. Apart from the more sleek and refined all-black variation (with a glow-in-the-dark outsole), the new Air Jordan 4 sneakers feature little to no change in design concept and silhouette. It’s as if it wasn’t a collaboration shoe at all.
