The Kids-Exclusive Air Jordan 4 “French Blue” is Clean

Every time the word “chores” is spoken aloud, a child rolls their eyes. These small, menial tasks are used as a way to slowly ease kids into adulthood by creating a sense of responsibility, and many children have them. They often involve cleaning, which can range from doing the dishes to taking out the trash, or (my least favorite growing up) cleaning the bedroom.

That last example serves as the inspiration behind Jordan Brand’s latest Air Jordan 4 Retro colorway. Dubbed “French Blue,” this kids-exclusive take comes covered in a range of materials and colors that are used to mimic the haphazardly placed items found in a young person’s living area.

The toeboxes, side panels, and lower heel portions are done in smooth blue leather, which matches the sneaker’s patent leather mudguards. A textured textile material is used for the ankle collar portions – it’s done in white to match the TPU-mesh netting on the side panels and lowermost tongues. The two-toned base is accentuated by the bright yellow uppermost eyelets and red sockliners. As for branding, this release features Jumpman-clad tongue tags and TPU heel panels.

Moving towards the sole, you’ll come across stark white foam midsoles, which house the sneaker’s visible Air units in the heels. Split red-and-white rubber outsoles complete the design.

Start saving your allowances now, because the Air Jordan 4 Retro “French Blue” will be releasing on and DTLR stores on January 7th in grade-school, pre-school, and infant sizing.
