With the advent of premium releases it also seems that sneaker companies have found an even faster way to drain your pockets than before. Nike has hiked up the price tag for their next Air Jordan 4 release in exchange for the promise of better quality materials. But the question remains, is it worth the money?

The answer is a resounding yes as the Air Jordan 4 Premium "Light Bone" is outfitted in the plushest leather and snakeskin imaginable. The mesh netting is replaced by perforations and the light bone leather build is slightly contrasted by a stark white midsole. Copper lacelets provide the finishing touch along with metal studs popping up from a snakeskin heel tab.

The Air Jordan 4 Premium "Light Bone" will be available via Nike's app SNKRS on May 21. At a price tag of $400 and only 5000 pairs being made, you’d be lucky to get your hands on this luxury shoe. So don't sleep on this release.
