When it comes to Michael Jordan’s signature Air Jordan models, the black and red color pairing is as original as it gets, but that isn’t the only reason why the “Bred” Air Jordan 4 is popular among sneaker fans.
One of MJ’s defining moments in his NBA career was without a doubt his go-ahead basket against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 1989 playoffs that cemented him as a legend in the sport. The kicks he was wearing when he hit shot: The Air Jordan 4 in black and red.
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4, the silhouette is returning in its original glory that longtime sneaker fans may remember. Designed by Tinker Hatfield, the upper features black nubuck with breathable mesh panels on the tongue and the sides. The black, red and gray color palette covers the foam midsole, including an Air unit at the heel. The classic details extend to the signature “Nike Air” branding on the heel, hangtag and the design on the box.
Following a surprise release on the SNKRS app yesterday, the upcoming “Bred” Jordan 4 will arrive again on May 4 at 10 a.m. ET via SNKRS in a full-size family run. The sneakers will retail for $200 in men’s sizing.
