The public got their hands on the Air Jordan 4 in 1989. The sneakers were the designs of living legend Tinker Hatfield. The designer was originally hired on at Nike as an architect. However, his move in to sneaker designed changed the landscape completely. Not only where his designs fresh, he changed the process of signature sneaker design by involving the athlete.

Jordan 4 Design Features

Older sneaker collectors will recognize these Air Jordans by the mesh panels on the tongue and side of the upper. Introduced in attempt to reduce the weight of the shoes, these elements also added breathability to the upper. The design also turned heads with their superb stabilization straps or “wings”. The Air Jordan 4 mid-sole was full in length with increased ankle support. The air cushioned heel features a prominent Nike Air inscription on these first pairs. Subsequent retros had the Nike Air replaced with a large Jumpman logo on the heel.

Debut of the Air Jordan 4

When they first hit the hardwood in 1989 four colorways appeared. The first to drop were what is now known by sneakerheads as “Cements” featuring White/Black with a cement looking mid-sole. The “Black Cement” 4s which featured Black/Cement Grey followed. The “Fire Red” colorway then came out featuring White/Fire Red-Black. One of the most talked about from the original release was the Military Blue joints which featured Off White/Military Blue.
