When it comes to making premium Air Jordans, there’s no question that A Ma Maniere is an ace when it comes to that department–all while keeping prices a bit palatable. Now it seems that Nike wants to make its own (read: non-collab) Air Jordan 4 with the SE Craft series–starting with the Photon Dust colorway.
While you might initially think that the Photon Dust is just a variation of the Cool Grey Air Jordan 4s, the patchwork design on the upper gives you an idea that the SE Craft is set to be a premium model. The upper has a mix of premium leather and suede panels, with the tongue getting a rough suede material. There’s also a suede tab on the sneaker’s lateral area to give it a unique look.
The SE Craft Air Jordan 4 is not considered an LS model, as you get a mix of a plastic heel tab and leather wing flaps (the LS Air Jordan 4s have a leather heel tab), so this is most likely an all-new line for the Air Jordan 4 series.
According to reports, the Air Jordan 4 SE Craft “Photon Dust” is set to drop sometime on February 11, 2023 for $210(~Php 12.1k). It’s very expensive as an Air Jordan 4 sneaker, but do note that this is a premium model.
