These stunning custom Air Jordan 4 Chrome PE sneakers were made especially for Usher by none other than Hollywood’s favourite renowned sneaker customiser, The Shoe Surgeon. The striking pair was made for his Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show performance, matching his black and blue number.
Usher’s show took his fans and sneakerheads through a fabulous journey of the past, through the many songs that have been with us throughout his stellar career and throughout most of our formative years. These stunning Air Jordan 4 “Chrome” PE sneakers are possibly a bit of a nod to Usher’s previous PE pair that he received from the Swoosh brand, a stunning Air Jordan 3 with an all-over Metallic Gold colourway.
Starting from the bottom, these beautiful sneakers feature a white and grey outsole and midsole, the midsole featuring the classic Air unit window in the heel, and accented by a royal blue “eyeliner” topping the midsole.
The entire upper is gleaming silver patent leather in a beautiful chrome finish that will have you wondering how The Shoe Surgeon managed to get it right. The reflective finish of the custom Air Jordan 4 “Chrome” PEs are perfect for reflecting the bright lights on the stage, shining brightly as Usher danced.
The accents, like the support wings, the Jumpman logo and the heel tab, all match the royal blue of the “eyeliner”, beautifully contrasted by the white rubber mesh that marks the cutouts of the Air Jordan 4 sneakers.
The Shoe Surgeon has added some precise detailing throughout the custom sneakers to make them one of a kind, including the tongue label that features a Jumpman with the Roman numeral IV to make the silhouette model number clear to anyone who might be curious, as well as the very unique logo on the back.
The sneakers’ spines feature a round logo with a U in it. The logo is set in light grey, matching the sock liner, and adorned with rhinestones throughout to make the U as noticeable as the reflective surface of the rest of the sneakers.

These custom Air Jordan 4 “Chrome” PE sneakers not only have a special touch made just for Usher but also mark a moment in history when the artistry behind custom sneaker designs is being recognised on a global scale. As an integral part of the sneakerhead community, it is amazing to see one of these immaculate artists finally getting the recognition they deserve.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of these sneakers, as not only “PE” sneakers but also a one-of-a-kind customised pair by The Shoe Surgeon, these aren’t available for public purchase. Until another custom artist manages to replicate (but not steal) this beautiful design, or Nike finally decides to give their customers what they want in beautiful chrome sneakers, we will have to longingly look at these sneakers.
