With all the Air Jordans that dropped this year, the most unexpected one was the Air Jordan 4 “Manila”. Limited to only 150 pairs, the special pair was released to commemorate the opening of the first-ever (not to mention biggest) Jordan Brand store in Southeast Asia.
Because the pair is highly sought-after, the Air Jordan 4 “Manila” commanded crazy resell prices–with some asking for as much as Php 350k for a pair. The plot twist? None of the 150 pairs are deadstock, as everyone who got their pair had to wear them inside the Jordan brand store and pose for a photo op.
While it is Jordan brand’s way of preventing resellers to sell them in deadstock condition, those who managed to get a pair carefully worn them for the photo op–to the point of cleaning up those outsoles to make them VNDS (or very near deadstock).
While Sole Movement’s Martin David detailed at how premium they are, we manage to check out an actual pair to see why people are going crazy for them. Check out our unboxing video below:
