The “White/Cement” colorway is returning as a part of upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018, but on a different, brand new sneaker model. As you likely know already, the “White/Cement” happens to be the iconic, original colorway of the Air Jordan 4 that made its retail debut back in 1989. The same year, Spike Lee wore it in his comedy–drama film, Do The Right Thing. It has also been re-released in retro form twice, once in 1999 and more recently in 2016, the latter resembling the OG more closely. This year it seems, the “White/Cement” colorway will be appearing on the successor to the Jordan 88 Racer.
The Jordan 88 Racer Was Also Released In White Cement
Earlier this year, Jordan Brand introduced two different running sneaker models. Both of them drew inspiration from the Air Jordan 3 and both were similarly designed. The first was the Zoom Tenacity 88 and the second was the Jordan 88 Racer. The soles of the latter also draw inspiration from those of the Nike Flyknit Trainer. Much like its upcoming sequel, the Jordan 88 Racer also made its retail debut in the “White/Cement” colorway at a price of $100. Rather unexpectedly, Jordan Brand seems to have unveiled the second Jordan Racer model and apparently it to will be debuting in the “White/Cement” colorway.
The Jordan 89 Racer Draws Inspiration From The Air JOrdan 4
The model featured here has been named the Jordan 89 Racer. The great thing about it is that it draws inspiration from the Air Jordan 4, so it makes it even more special for it to debut in the “White/Cement” colorway. In fact, it gets part of its name from the year the Air Jordan 4 debuted, i.e. 1989. Hence, its color scheme consists of Black, Cement Grey, Fire Red and White. Although it looks more aerodynamic and sleeker, it still resembles the Air Jordan 4, especially its similar lace lock wings. Despite the lack of official release details, it will likely be among upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018.
