At the heart-stopping Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show, Usher delivered an electrifying and nostalgia-infused performance that was not just a feast for the ears but also for the eyes, especially for sneakerheads. The R&B superstar elevated the stage with a pair of striking custom Air Jordan 4 Chrome PEs, crafted by renowned sneaker customizer The Shoe Surgeon. Previously, Jordan Brand gave Usher his own PE version of the Jordan 3, which featured an all-over Metallic Gold upper.
The custom Jordan 4s worn by Usher were a spectacle in themselves, showcasing a gleaming silver upper that mirrored Usher's unparalleled stage presence. The use of blue accents on the wings and the Jumpman logo, the latter incorporating the Roman numeral "IV" to denote the model number, added a vibrant contrast to the metallic sheen. Furthermore, the sneakers featured a unique "U" logo on the heel, adorned with rhinestones, exemplifying the custom touch and Usher's personal brand. The performance itself was a nostalgic journey through Usher's hit-laden career, with the custom Air Jordan 4 Chrome PEs complementing each step and dance move.
Usher's choice of footwear for the Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show not only added an extra layer of glamour to his performance but also spotlighted the artistry behind custom sneakers. While these custom Jordan 4 PEs are not available for public purchase, they've undoubtedly left a mark on sneaker culture, highlighting the ongoing collaboration between high-profile artists and custom sneaker artisans.
