It took quite some time, but golf fashion is gradually inching its way into the “cool” spotlight and part of the reason is because sportswear brands like Jordan Brand and Nike are starting to cash on backing this category with more energy. The former has done so by fashioning its retro models with cleats fit for the fairway, and next in line is this Air Jordan 4 Golf “Black Cat” colorway that has just been revealed by way of official imagery.
The base layer of these course-ready kicks steers away from the usual nubuck materials from the original “Black Cat” offering and instead opts for shiny faux pony hair material. This particular animalistic aesthetic instantly recalls memories of Olivia Kim’s Air Jordan 4 “No Cover” collaboration from 2019 as it essentially sported the same exact look and feel. Mesh arrives in the usual mid-foot sections and down the throat while glossy finishes are applied to the cages and Jumpman logos on the heels. Additionally, the heel counters are decorated with tonal paint splatter patterns for added flair.
Midsoles and treading are blacked out entirely as well, the latter of which features golf cleats for traction on the green. No release date has been announced just yet, but it’s likely that Nike will be dropping these in the coming months for $220 USD.
