In 2006, the Air Jordan 4 “Black Cat” and its “Pure Money” pairing released to some fanfare but not to the appeal they’ve since grown to today.
Releasing right around the SB boom and the rebirth of loud, retro inspired streetwear, all-black and all-white Air Force 1s were past their prime with look alike getting little love. Fast forward to Jay-Z’s All-Black Everything look in ’09 and A$AP Rocky’s street goth wave in 2011 and the “Black Cats” suddenly saw new cache.
Never released since their ’06 arrival, it appears they’re coming back but we’ll have to wait a bit. According to House of Heat and their sources, the Air Jordan 4 “Black Cat” won’t be back until February 2020.
While far from confirmed as it’s so far out, this makes a good deal of sense as All-Star Weekend/the month of February is typically a busy one for JB. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for updates.
