Air Jordan 4 (IV)

Air Jordan 4: 1988–1989

Tinker Hatfield was once again ready to design the fourth model from the Air Jordan line in 1989 and all he needed was the right idea to surpass the Air Jordan 3. Tinker wanted the new model to be more capable than its predecessors in terms of being a performance basketball shoe. This is the reason he used an over-molded mesh for the Air Jordan 4. Despite being initially disliked, the Air Jordan 4 quickly gained popularity. A unique, signature feature of the model was that there 18 different patterns in which its laces could be tied.While Jordan Brand dropped plenty of Air Jordan 4 colorways, the rare Eminem x Carhartt x Air Jordan 4 turned out to be a friends and family exclusive.

For 2016, the Air Jordan 4 is a part of Jordan Brand’s “Dunk From Above” collection and their evolved remaster initiative that will mark the retail debut of the Air Jordan 4 Retro “White/Cement” with Nike Air branding.
