Jordan 4 ‘ Cool Grey ‘a shoe that hasn’t had a reissued since its first ever date of dropping back in 2004.
The once sought after pair has come back and was teased for a good couple of months before hand creating a bit of hype behind them. Once heard of the massive numbers upon release the fad just discipipated.
So, with having both pairs in hand here t HQ, we are able to Compared the 2004 edition to the 2019.
With that said, here we go the 04 has seemily a better nubuck upper, higher material areas and a much more prominent higher padded ankle area support, the nicest of touches is a softer inner foot lining compared to the 2019 pair.
One major difference is the 19’s mesh side panels and toe box come as a separate piece to the upper not like the previous noughies models. Doing this has really brought back the retro feel of what Jordan once used to be.
While they are subtle difference, it may not matter to people these days, we here at SneakEire are able to show the difference of 15 years can make in production and how the usage of materials is now being made over quantity rather than quality.
But, don’t get us wrong the 19 pair has definitely been excuted well just like the breds with those minor differences, but we wear what we love right? And let’s hope the cracks don’t show 😉
Have a look below of the difference and let us know what you think?
And here’s some of up close of the 2019 pair
