10. Wrapping

The Nike Air Jordan 4 Union LA Desert Moss comes with two layers of wrapping. The bottom layer is plain white with a matt finish. The second layer is unique to the Jordan 4 Union LAs and features a photo print of Michael Jordan signing autographs.

16. Air Unit

Nike Air Jordan 4 Union LAs feature an air unit in the midsole. Make sure there is no excess glue or paint on the window. Note the support structure inside the air unit. This is a good place to see the fine textures of the midsole.

23. Toebox Profile

Check the thickness of the suede upper and how it curves over the purple upper on the toe. Note the shape of the toebox itself and how it comes up from the midsole.

30. Tongue Detail

The inside of the tongue reveals a thin layer of grey material over foam and a mesh material, which can be seen through the holes cut above the zig-zag stitch line. Check that the holes are neatly cut. Note the loose threads at the end of the zig-zag stitching.
