The much-anticipated Air Jordan 4 Retro Photon Dust garnered considerable excitement from fans since its initial leaks.

Air Jordan 1 craft Vibrations of Naija
The Air Jordan 1 Retro "Vibrations of Naija" serves as a tribute to Nigeria and its exceptionally dynamic culture. This launch followed the previous year's drop of the Air Jordan 7 SE "Afrobeats" and is a prominent inclusion in the Jordan brand's "Craft" series. This collection aims to present sneakers with an appearance reminiscent of handmade craftsmanship. As mentioned the "Craft" releases prioritise distinctive and artisanal details, representing one of the numerous enhancements the Jordan brand has introduced to align with the ongoing evolution of the sneaker culture.
While the Vibrations of Naija 1s may present a subdued take on Michael Jordan's original signature shoe, they are anything but simplistic, showcasing an abundance of intricate details. Crafted from off-white tumbled leather, the upper is adorned with subtle tan stitching that spans the entirety of the sneaker. Noteworthy is the Swoosh, which features a wood grain infusion, speckled in black, and concludes with a pale vanilla finish, mirroring the identical speckling on the raised collar and adjacent to the lace unit.
Adding to the intricacy of the design, the Nike Air tongue logo adopts the distinct speckled detailing, accompanied by tan sneaker laces that mirror the tan insole and cream-coloured outer sole. Bringing the ensemble together, the iconic Wings logo graces the lateral sides in a matching tan shade, seamlessly aligning with the sneaker box that adheres to the same colour palette.
The Jordan craft series has been highly successful and looks to add two more additions in the Air Jordan 4 SE Craft “Olive” and the Air Jordan 3 SE in 2024.
