The latest shoe in the Air Jordan signature line was officially unveiled earlier today in New York. Michael Jordan’s 29th signature sneaker, the Air Jordan XX9, is the first performance-based shoe to feature a woven-constructed upper.

“This shoe (the Air Jordan XX9) fits the foot better than any other shoe we’ve created,” said Mark Smith, Jordan Brand’s Global Creative Director, who was on hand along with other notables of the brand, such as Tinker Hatfield (Vice President of Creative Concepts), Larry Miller (Jordan Brand President) and Michael Jordan himself.

A little over a year ago, the Air Jordan XX8 was introduced to the world. Designed with advanced performance in mind, Jordan Brand created one of their most polarizing, and powerful, silhouettes to date. The look of the Air Jordan XX8 is tremendously different from anything previously seen from Jordan Brand, and the shoe’s most noticeably different feature is the stretch synthetic, Schoeller mesh-infused exterior shroud. Worn regularly by NBA superstars Ray Allen and Russell Westbrook, the Air Jordan XX8 has had a great run. With the unveiling of the Air Jordan XX9 scheduled for tomorrow, we wanted to spotlight the ingenious signature’s retail run.

With the anticipation of this weekend’s retro releases and restocks building exponentially, the demand for retro Air Jordans seems to be near its peak. Would you believe re-releases of Air Jordan signatures have not always been as coveted as they are today? Back in ’94, Nike attempted their first run of retros during Michael Jordan’s first retirement, with lackluster success, as many of these releases hit Nike outlets. Five years later, we saw MJ retire again, and more attempts to revive legendary Jordan silhouettes began again. This time, Nike started with the Air Jordan 4, a Tinker Hatfield-designed shoe, that took the world by storm in 1989. Soon after, Jordan delivered a career season wearing the AJ 4, adding to its legacy. The Air Jordan 4 featured many new design concepts. First, the straps on the side for increased ankle support. It was also the first shoe to incorporate a unique design element that we all have come to know and love as “Cement” print. The 1999 return the Air Jordan 4 is known more for its Nike Air branding, but thei shoe’s impact on sneaker culture is un-matched by any other Air Jordan silhouette. The return of the Air Jordan 4 proved that retros could sell in a modern market, and paved the way for future retro releases in non-O.G colors. To pay homage to the iconic sneaker, we ranked our 23 favorite Air Jordan 4 releases of all time. Skim through our list and let us know if you agree with our rankings in the comments.
