The Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” holds a significant place in the history of Michael Jordan’s fourth signature shoe. Originally launched in 1989, this iconic sneaker is set to make a highly anticipated comeback in 2024, marking the 35th anniversary of its initial release.
The 1989 debut witnessed the Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” as one of the original four colorways. In contrast to the 2012 edition, the upcoming 2024 retro release will faithfully replicate the original specifications, featuring the coveted “Nike Air” branding for an authentic ’89 look.
This retro dons the quintessential white, grey and blue colour scheme in full grain leather featuring netted panels on the vamp and collar lining. Signature Flight tongue branding echoes the legend’s soaring athletics, paired with visible Air cushioning units at the heel and forefoot for comfort. The design is elevated by Military Blue accents on the eyelets, midsole, heel tabs, and Jumpman logos on the tongues. This OG makeup encapsulates the model’s enduring influence into its fourth decade and beyond.
