Jordan Brand will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan IV with an OG re-release of the Bred colorway. The retro basketball sneaker was made famous by Michael Jordan s legendary dunk in the 1989 NBA Playoffs against the Cleveland Cavaliers while he wore the Tinker Hatfield-designed pair.
The Nike Air Jordan IV Bred was last released in 2012 and was lacking some very important archival branding. For 2019, the silhouette returns with the all-important NIKE AIR heel tab branding, a detail that hasn t been featured on the AJ4 Bred for over 20 years.
Coming in the original box for the first time since 1989, the AJ4 Bred will feature a mixture of black, grey, and fire red throughout its nubuck and vented-mesh upper. The retro re-release will also feature the OG hangtag and Jordan Flight branding on the tongue tab.
