Air Jordan IV (4) Retro
The Air Jordan IV made its initial debut in 1989 and was instantly praised for its unique design. The Tinker Hatfield creation features a 3/4 (or mid) cut similar to the Air Jordan III, large "Flight" logo on the tongue, plastic lace hole accents, and a visible Air-Sole unit. Although the Air Jordan IV did not need help in the popularity department after its release, the Air Jordan IV was famously featured in Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" catapulting its appeal into a new realm.
Since 1985, the sneakers carrying Michael Jordan’s name and world-renowned “Jumpman” silhouette have helped to define and shape sneaker culture. It began with a standard Nike high top, and evolved with daring designs implemented into each iteration. From graphic prints to patent leather to fighter planes and Ferrari-inspired designs, Jordan sneakers routinely transcend its basketball roots by refreshing its initial offerings with new looks and color schemes to remain prevalent throughout generations.
