The Stealthy ‘Black Cat’ Air Jordan 4 Is Returning Next Week

One of the more popular non-original colorways of the classic Air Jordan 4 is returning next week.

Known as the “Black Cat” colorway, spawned from one of Michael Jordan’s many nicknames, this Jordan 4 sports a tonal black nubuck upper that’s paired with matching graphite matte details. Some of the recognizable features include the hardshell molds holding down the lace stay and breathable netting on the sides. Adding to the look is a black-on-black Jumpman branding on the tongue while a glossy black logo is stamped on the heel, which sits atop an all-black sole.

To give the model some background, this model was designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield and debuted in 1989; the first time that fans were able to pick up this “Black Cat” makeup was in 2006.

The Air Jordan 4 Retro “Black Cat” releases on Jan. 22 via the SNKRS app at 10 a.m. ET as well as at select Jordan Brand retailers for $190.
