It's time to go old school, with some simple swagger that any sneaker aficionado would love to wear. The new Air Jordan 4 Retro "White/Cement" shoes are dropping, and they are smooth. 

Clean. That is all I can say about these retro joints. Well, I can say a lot more actually, and I will do it here. First, the details that most of you will be clamoring for:

These shoes drop on Saturday, February 18th and will retail for $160. Let's dive right into these pretty looking sneakers.

Wow Factor: 8.5 out of 10

Other than looking like moon boots to some, there isn't a whole lot that will stop people on the street. The colorway couldn't be more simple, and sometimes that's what you need.

I am loving the grey "cement" feel that adorns the midsole and the back of the tongue. I just like the look of the speckles behind the classic Jumpman logo. So, it won't have people jumping to ask you where you got them, but they will still take notice. 

Design: 9 out of 10

Love the design. The only hiccup that I can see is the at the front of the foot. The black makes the shoe look a little too boxy for my taste. 

This is a sleek colorway, and it can look like something an astronaut would rock. I am nitpicking here, because these are classic retros that I would be proud to own. The simple design makes them something you could rock on the court, or with some jeans. 

Overall Swag Grade: 9 out of 10

I am a sucker for the black speckles and subtle nuances that are put on the shoe. Even the black, red and grey outsole has me giddy to get a pair. 

If you like a two-tone feel to your shoe and love a taste of old school, run out tomorrow and grab a pair. Nike does it again.
