It turns out the loud, metallic silver Jordan 4s were customs that Usher commissioned from respected California-based sneaker customizer The Shoe Surgeon.

The entire upper is metallic with royal blue lace accents, grey laces, and white soles for some contrast. Even the tongue is customized, with a matching blue Jumpman and IV in Roman numerals beneath, both a nod to it being the fourth signature should in Jordan’s line and his full name, Usher Raymond IV. Ciambrone also ripped off the typical Nike Air logo usually affixed to the heel to replace it with a circled lower-case script ‘u,’ resembling the chain Usher rocked in his early-aughts heyday.

The striking blue color followed throughout Usher’s last outfit of the night, with a matching Off-White set that sported 394,000 crystals while he was joined by Will.i.am, Lil Jon, and Ludacris.

This isn’t the first time Usher has rocked some impressive Jordan footwear with his own twist. The first was in 2014, when he took the stage at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, donning a pair of all-gold Air Jordan 11s.

That same year, using the same all-gold-everything theme, he wore a pair of Jordan 3s in a Honey Nut Cheerios commercial.

According to Highsnobiety, while not as rare as the 1-of-1 Jordan 4s he wore at the Halftime show, there are said to be only 10 pairs of the Jordan 3s in existence.
