Is the “Taupe Haze” Union Air Jordan 4 the Best Yet?

Union LA is celebrating its 30 anniversary this year by releasing commemorative collaborations with Nike and other select brands. One of the rumored drops centers around a new Air Jordan 4 colorway, which for now is going by the name of “Taupe Haze.”

After initially being teased in March, detailed images of the forthcoming Union x Air Jordan 4 have arrived, courtesy of @repgod888. The “Taupe Haze” will serve as a followup to last year’s “Off Noir” and “Guava” colorways, as the three iterations incorporate similar design details.

As with the “Off Noir” and “Guava,” the “Taupe Haze” features a pre-folded tongue that can be unfurled, a standout element that references the way Union’s Chris Gibbs wore his Jordan 4s growing up. On the side of the sneaker, you will then find a yellow Union LA tab, which appropriately signals the collaboration. An accompanying 30th anniversary hangtag reading 1991-2021 marks the occasion as well.

Suedes and textile materials come together across the upper of the “Taupe Haze” iteration, which is livened up with pops of bright color. The midsole below is done up in a sail hue, providing further complement to the muted upper.

Early reports suggest the “Taupe Haze” Union x Air Jordan 4 will be a Union-exclusive retailing for $250. As the release has yet to be announced, be sure to check back with us for confirmation.
