Whether you’re an ’80s baby or new to the sneaker game, any time Jordan Brand drops a new 4 than you’re probably ready to cop a pair. Designed by the infamous Tinker Hatfield and debuted in 1989, the Air Jordan 4 was meant to go deeper into performance rather than inspiration that was seen in the previous three models. When the Air Jordan 4 originally released, the shoe was a little too advanced for the average fan. Pop culture love like Buggin’ Out’s scene in Do The Right Thing and other off celebrity court love made these a must in the streets too.
The Air Jordan Retro 4 “Alternate 89” colorway is something new but still pays homage to Chicago, so you can pull out that Mitchell and Ness Bulls jersey. But you don’t have to be decked out in Bull’s gear to make these kicks look good. The supple white leather upper and red accents make this sneaker the perfect retro to jump off 2016. Make sure you check out the back heel tab for a special detail that you won’t find on any other Jordan 4s.
