The Air Jordan 4 Raptors is set to make its debut in May. While dressed in the Toronto Raptors colors, the shoes were intended to be the next Jordan Brand x Drake release.
This Air Jordan 4 was suppose to have Drake’s name on the tongue with the same theme as Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 4 Houston Oilers that’s scheduled for June. Both rappers were intended to pay homage to their home teams using the Air Jordan 4 dressed in their team colors and artists name on the shoes.
Now that Drake is moving on to join adidas, this release will not be happening. Instead we will receive a non-Drake retail version of the “Raptors” Air Jordan 4.
An official announcement about Drake join adidas is expected to release very soon.
Color: Black/University Red-Court Purple
Style Code: AQ3816-056

UPDATE: Nike has uploaded Drake’s version of the Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” which will no longer be releasing. Instead, the retail pair will not included his signature on the tongues.
