The Air Jordan 4 was the second chapter in what would be a long novel of one-of-a-kind creations from Tinker Hatfield engineered for no one other than Michael Jordan. The AJ4 would headline the 1988-1989 season in which Jordan and the Chicago Bulls were just one series win short of reaching their first NBA Finals appearance with his Airness at the helm. As the history books show, he’d get a few times.
The Air Jordan 4 was a change of pace for both Tinker and MJ as the shoe featured mesh overlays on the side panels, an unorthodox heel tab length and featured the “Flight” script logo on the tongue for the first time on a Jordan.
While the “Bred” and “White Cement” colorways are the most recognized iterations of the pair, the Air Jordan 4 “Fire Red” was a member of the original colorway set that helped elevate the silhouette to a new echelon.
For the first time since its original release, the Air Jordan 4 “Fire Red” is coming back with the Nike Air on the heel.
The 1989 pair is pictured below so you can get an idea of what to expect this fall. Keep it locked here at Nice Kicks for all of your Jordan needs as we await more details on the shoe.
