35 Years

2024 marks the 35 Anniversary of the Air Jordan 4’s release. 4 OG colorways of the Air Jordan 4 were originally released, with the Military Blue being one of them. The 2024 return will utilize the original specs, including, and probably most importantly, the “Nike Air” branding on the heels. The shoe is presented in White, Military Blue, and Neutral Grey. There are Military Blue accents on the eyelets, midsole, heel tabs, and the Jumpman logos on the tongues.

The Design Of The 4

The Jordan 4 was the second straight shoe designed by Tinker Hatfield and was released in 1989. It was not a huge departure from the 3 when it comes to design, but it made additions that make it one of the more beloved in the series. The Jumpman logo had the word “Flight” added right below it. It introduced nubuck materials to the sneaker world for the first time. There were mesh components for increased breathability and it had multiple areas that featured plastic.

The Shot

During the 1989 Playoffs, Michael Jordan hit one of the most memorable shots of his career. That moment in the 1989 Playoffs, with Jordan’s Chicago Bulls facing off against the Cleveland Cavaliers, was so thrilling and memorable that it is simply known as “The Shot.” The game winning shot by Jordan took place at the end of Game 5 of the series. With seconds left in the game Jordan received an inbound pass and hit a foul line jumper as time expired. The Bulls went on to win the game 101 to 100, and they advanced to the second round of the playoffs. The play helped to solidify Michael Jordan as a global superstar and showed the world how clutch he was. Jordan was wearing the Air Jordan IV “BRED” when he hit The Shot. That helped to lift the Air Jordan 4 to icon status.

Shoe Palace

The Air Jordan 4 “Industrial Blue” will return to Shoe Palace on May 4.
