Jordan Brand has a lot of iconic colorways, and two of those includes the “White Cement” Air Jordan 4 and “Taxi” Air Jordan 12.
The Air Jordan 4 “White Cement” is one of the original four colorways released in 1989. The shoe features a White leather upper with speckled Cement Grey accents that give the sneaker its nickname. Black detailing, Red accents with “Nike Air” branding completes the classic look. Last seen in 2016, the sneaker also retro’d in 1999 and 2012. The 1999 and 2016 retros are the only models that feature the “Nike Air” branding on the heel, just like the 1989 OG release.
Worn by Michael Jordan during the 1996-1997 season was the Air Jordan 12 “Taxi” colorway. The shoe features a White leather upper with Black textile leather overlays and outsole with Metallic Gold eyelets and a carbon fiber shank that references the Black and Yellow of NYC Taxi cabs. First retro’d in 2008’s Countdown Collection, the “Taxi” was also given the low-top treatment in 2011.
