The Air Jordan 4 debuted in 1989 by building on the Air Jordan 3 ability to seamlessly blend on-court performance with off-court fashion. Straps framed the eyelets, which provided function for ballers seeking extra support -- or resembled wings on the side of the shoe when loosely laced.
Jordan Brand flipped one of its original Air Jordan 4 colorways for the Air Jordan 4 Military Black.
Pulling its color-blocked style from the Air Jordan 4 Military Blue, the Air Jordan 4 Military Black features a smooth white leather upper with a light grey Durabuck toe wrap and netted TPU inserts. Military Black eyelets, heel tabs, and underlays add a stark contrast to the upper. At the base, a white, black, and light grey sole with a visible Air unit completes the design.
The Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Midnight Navy’ dresses the legacy silhouette in the same color blocking used on the OG ‘Fire Red’ colorway. The upper is constructed from white leather with black support wings, a matching black heel tab with embossed Jumpman branding, and navy molded eyelets. A second Jumpman icon adorns the woven tongue tag in crimson. The sneaker rides on a two-tone polyurethane midsole, featuring encapsulated Air in the forefoot and a visible unit in the heel.
Jordan Brand honored NBA head coach Phil Jackson's spiritual approach to coaching with the Air Jordan 4 Zen Master.
Nodding to Michael Jordan-era Chicago Bulls head coach Phil Jackson's nickname "Zen Master", the Air Jordan 4 Zen Master offers a calming palette with faint blue and pink tie-dye canvas uppers with clear TPU eyelets and heel tabs. Black TPU netted inserts and woven Jordan Flight tongue labels bring a slight contrast. From there, a matching sole with an Air unit under the heel completes the design.
Following similar color blocking as the Air Jordan 4 Thunder, the Air Jordan 4 Red Thunder features an all-black Durabuck upper with red netted underlays and eyelets. On the tongue, a signature Air Jordan Flight patch is stitched. A vibrant red midsole and Jumpman heel tab complete the retro design.
Particularly highlighted by Jordan Brand these last months, the Air Jordan 4 returns with a darkvariation.
The Air Jordan 4 Black Canvas features a black canvas base with a tone-on-tone suede mudguard. Emblematic of this model, the TPU cage is well present in a black color, as the flaps. Grey eyelets, matching part of the midsole as well as the heel and tongue branding, bring contrast to this pair. A touch of white around the Air Sole unit gives the final touch to this novel iteration.
More sober, but no less efficient, this new version of the AJ4 should quickly become indispensable.
Dressed in a Canyon Purple, Anthracite, Alligator, and Safety Orange color scheme. This offering of the Air Jordan 4 features a Purple suede base paired with Anthracite hits on the netting, tongue tags, wings, heel tabs, and laces. Green contrasting accents on the speckled eyelets and sole unit with pops of Orange throughout completes the design.
The Air Jordan 4 Infrared features a tonal grey Durabuck upper with black TPU mesh inserts, tech straps, and heel tabs. Hits of Infrared on the lacing system and woven Jordan Flight tongue label add a sharp contrast to the neutral-toned base. From there, a white sole with visible Air units completes the design.
