What up Sneakerheads! PK here with a brand new pair of kicks. Purchases have been slow lately as you know if you've been around the site since day one.... I am a lowly college student. I know there are plenty of high-powered sneaker sites out there but I really appreciate you guys checking out mine on the come up! Lets's get back to these 4s.... These Legend Blues are my first pair of 4s and I am a huge fan of the model. I had passed up on a few 4s in past years due to not being in love with the colorways (Thunder 4s, Military Blue 4s). However there were the ones that got away...the Toro 4s. I love this particular pair of retro 4s because they have the mother of all accent colors... POWDER BLUE. Some may argue that the accent is actually its namesake legend blue, but what a lot of people don't know is that legend blue and powder blue are actually the same thing! Legend Blue is named after Michael Jordan's time spent on Chapel Hill where he won an NCAA championship in 1982 with the North Carolina Tarheels! Jordan was so proud of his Alma Mater that he actually wore his UNC shorts under his Bulls shorts during games! Enough of my MJ fun facts, back to the shoes. I love a clean white pair of sneakers because like any quality sneakerhead knows, if you give em the proper love and respect they will look GOOD. These 4s are an interesting pair because they have textured leather on the upper and midsole. I like the look of the textured leather because it gives the sneakers that OG feel. I also like the straps and lace holders because without them I feel the 4 would be too plain. I also like the pure size of the Jordan Brand logo on the heel of the sneaker. There are accents of navy blue throughout the sneaker as well as the interior of the shoe. They are more comfortable than most retros. Overall I definitely recommend copping these if you can get em around retail on a site like Kixify.com. Check back for the 10k site view post and for info on this weekend's Frenc Blue 7s!
