First Look: Air Jordan 4 White/Cement 2012 Sample

What a day for sneakers. We get our first look at the upcoming Air Jordan 4 White/Cement retro. This sample pair slated for 2012 keeps OG and ?99 retro detail more in less in tact with a white leather upper set over a grey and black midsole. Speckling is faint compared to the previous releases with changes still possible.

      Yo seriously. They should be identical to the 99’s since theyre gonna have the
      Jumpman on the back. That’s more than enough change. Cuz this pic fucking sucks! The damn leather looks shinny as if it’s patent leather and the cement is crap. Even the fusion versions had the cement on point. Please JB keep this shoe a classic. Don’t ruin it for us! My 99s can’t be worn anymore so hook it up!

    • Marcus

      wtf are you fuckin talking about, the no cement jumpman heel tab was on a confirmed april fools day joke fake, why would you imply that the actual retro would be anything like the fake we seen monthes ago??? lastly, thats obviously a rhetorical question, quit flamin this bitch up with your dumb ass misinformation…

        • Marcus

          ?i didnt even reply to you, you dumb ass bitch, and the fact you agreed with dude means your fuckin stupid as he is… hes refering to a fake that popped on april fools day, which you clearly were too fuckin dumb to see…

    I swear if the final product looks like this I’m gonna pass. That’ll be an insult. Robbing ppl for 150 for total crap. Idc if ppl respond shit to me. I’m just saying we are loyal customers that buy for the quality and history that these Used to shoes bring. Sometimes it feels that JB is just milking the sneaker culture and not caring about the moral behind it and just focusing on profits. Smh

    • Marcus

      i think you and i both know jb/nike can give a fuck about morals and obviously all they care about is profit, i second that shit though, if this bullshit comes out like this i will most definitely pass…

    Better have Nike Air on the back! But that’s just some lofty expectations, so much for wishful thinking….

    LMAO!!! … . .. not enough black specs, shiny white leather, bad picture quality, etc. .. . …! WOW, lets see, hmm.. . Its a SAMPLE!!! Its not posed to have good picture quality, because they might’ve had to take the pic quick (probley not even supposed to have it) and as far as materials on it.. …psshh!! As a person who has a graphic arts & design degree and works for a marketing & advertising company. I know for one and have enough common sense not to complain about a sample like a woman going through hot flashes. Samples are not supposed to have good quality materials, until the final presentation before the board of exec’s and Jordan team. They used just enough to make the shoe for a introduction and where there trying to go with the shoe. So until Nicekicks gets some final pic’s right before the release, (like all major jordan release’s) get some tapon’s for your period, PERIOD.

      Going by JB history in the last few years (and more recently, the Cement and TB III’s), the final product will be just as bad as the samples. But they don’t really care because a legion of people will still go and throw money at them to get them.

      By the way, why exactly do they need to show where they’re going with the shoe when it’s supposed to be a re-release of a shoe that has been released twice before?

    • Marcus

      “LMAO!!!”??? nothing is funny you dumb bitch, its clear that people just want the shoe the way its suppose to look, and like the dude responding on the shit before me, jb track record lately is straight shit and this could possibly be the fucking final retail 150+ product, so take your fucking graphic arts, design, marketing, and advertsing degrees and go suck a dick.. at this point, half the 99s arent even probably wearable so if they fuck this shit up acting like they are doing collectors a favor, they are sadly fuckin mistaken…

  5. KevinPeacesk8

    Fuck this bitch ass shoe and fuck the fact that they are retroing them next year! Your a bitch if you get these….

  6. Charlesgritton

    Hopefully there will be alo of changes before the final product drops because I couldn’t cop with light black in the cement print and the outsole Is only supposed to be grey on the heel and toe, not all the way through.

  7. Charlo the sneaker addict

    Before they piss people off they need to keep this model just like the original so they need to keep the speckels the same and they need to just keep it simple thats all were asking for.

  8. Bware113

    I have faith they’ll clean this up I’m sure. Those specs will be contrasted by the end of the year.

    SMH at the pessimists who’s first comments are ‘these are gonna crack’. I can honestly say I have a number of IVs from 06, and they all have very minimal (un-noticeable) cracking. Take care of your shoes and you won’t have to worry about it.

  9. KillaCam

    Nike better make the quality is good as possible on the sneakerr. this one cant be made badd step up on the black speckles u did it once should be no porb to make em rightt.

  10. HAHAHA

    Do people on NK ever read? It says “SAMPLE”. A sample isn’t the final product. There will be major changes to the design before it retails and hit stores across the country. The cement will be more detailed, the material(s) will be different, etc, etc. This is just a teaser of what’s to come. This is just a sneaker to let the world know, we are really releasing this colorway, but give us time to make improvements and put our all into the design and details.

    • Soul_rebel34

      Improvements on what?! The shoe has been around since 1989! How can you get a shoe so wrong when you can just “Google” it and find pictures of what it should look like?

  11. DugLast

    Happy about the retro, but this pic is a serious tease. Looking forward to the next round (and more than one shot).

  12. Soundwave787

    Doesn’t really matter what any of the pics look like… I’m getting these boys regardless and so will the rest of you and then we we all come back on here and complain about quality and materials used…..

  13. Terence J Parker

    I love the IV’s but these are wack to me. Just drop the black Cements and the Air Hova’s again and that will be all.

  14. D3rrtydarun

    All im saying JB is enough with the jumpman in the heel of the shoes that takes away from the original look. Honestly my sneaker friends when they put the jumpman logos on the retros it takes away from the shoe making it look like a?factory varient. If they would return the orginal Nike Air swoosh logo which is close to never happening at this point of us purchasing sales would rise along with a better look on the shoe. So JB if you are really reading these comments do all of us true sneaker collectors a hhhhhuge favor return the logo cause we all know finding the OG or 99 to 2001 retros is close to impossible. And flightclub doesnt restock the like that on a regular.

  15. TopNotch_TC

    not feeling the faint?sparkle!! Jordon brand tried too hard to take away from the original shoe when thats all us sneaker fans want!?Originality?or something close to it! this might as well be a whole different color way if you ask me because the gray is nothing close

  16. ANYC

    Grey speckles? Nah. This kid in my school has fake cements and they have better looking speckles than this. Hopefully they’ll be black and more like the OG. Not feeling these. Hopefully JB doesn’t kill these as well, they killed the Met Vs with that “icey” sole shit. Stay OG JB, stop listening to hypebeasts.?

    If y’all mutha fuckas don’t wake up n get a damn life bum ass nukkaz….don’t like em ..don’t copp em!…shut up all tha cryin!…boo hoo I need black specs!..
