West coast boutique UNION LA surprised suddenly with their Air Jordan 1s quite a bit back, both colorways replete with vintage ethos. For Fall/Winter ’20, the imprint is following up their previous set with not just two but four different pairs for release at the end of August. From their duo of Air Jordan 4s to their Jordan Zoom 92 and Jordan Delta Mid, the “Sophomore Album” as they call it delivers a theme still retro-inspired and filled to the brim with Chris Gibbs’ personal touch. The undisputed helm of the entire collection, the two Air Jordan 4s effectively retrace past ideas with new additions. “Off-Noir,” as a visual mirror of the aforementioned AJ1, brings the same palettes of black, white, red, and blue with a material composition plush and like that of “Birkenstock sandals” as Gibbs states. Its vibrant complement, the “Guava,” takes the same color story and dials it to a neon 11 — the upper masked in bright pink while the accents adjacent mix in more saturated shades along with pastel blues and vintage yellowing. But while their palettes are significantly loud, the structural details are far more interesting as the tongue is loosely stitched down for a shorter look while the paneling adds an extra element for a profile unique to UNION themselves.
