Although this colorway doesn't appear to have any official ties to the Toronto Raptors, it's a nickname that will likely stick for this makeup, which uses a black upper, speckled purple midsole, and bright red accents on the plastic lace wings, outsole, and behind the tongue.
Release details have not been officially confirmed, but this Air Jordan 4 NRG style is expected to launch before the end of the month.
UPDATE (04/27): Official images of the Air Jordan 4 Retro NRG "Raptors" have surfaced. While a release date has yet to be confirmed, it should be noted that the pair arriving at retail is not expected to feature Drake's signature on the tongue and will instead resemble the style pictured above.
