Michael Jordan Through The Years: Air Jordan IV

December 2nd, 2010 by | 32 comments

michael jordan through the years AJIV Michael Jordan Through The Years: Air Jordan IV

In 1988, Michael Jordan began his fifth year as an NBA professional, and at the 1989 NBA All-Star break, Jordan debuted the Air Jordan IV. Tinker Hatfield was brought on board once more for his second Air Jordan shoe, the first being the Air Jordan III of the previous year. Michael Jordan went from ready to leave Nike at one moment to fully embracing the potential the next due to the outstanding design of the Air Jordan III. Would Michael’s expectations be too high for the Air Jordan IV?

Since the Air Jordan III and the introduction of elephant print to the Air Jordan signature line, each and every Air Jordan model has been signified by one defining feature; For the Air Jordan IV, it was the use of a plastic-coated mesh upper panel that gave the AJ4 its calling card, as the special material was implemented into the design to add a lightweight yet stylish characteristic to the shoe. Other beautifying features are the triangular wing-flaps that acted as the lace eyelets, the all-new midsole construction that featured visible Air, and a new ‘Flight’ logo written in a flashy script font.

Aside from design features and trademarks, each Air Jordan model is recognized for one specific event in Michael Jordan’s storied career. For the Air Jordan IV, standing about all the great single-game performances, dunks, and scoring displays was ‘The Shot’, that came during the closing seconds of Game 5 of the First Round Playoff Series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Considered to be the greatest game-winning shot in the history of basketball, Michael Jordan suspended himself in mid-air at the top of the key, disregarding the laws of inertia, and sank a buzzer-beating, series-closing jumper, celebrating with a vicious set of fist-pumps before being mobbed by his teammates, while head coach Doug Collins scampered around the court and the Cleveland crowd stared in silence and utter disbelief. Continue reading for the entire Michael Jordan Through The Years: Air Jordan IV feature and stay tuned to the next installment of this Sneaker News Michael Jordan feature.

Nike is about to release their sixth signature Kobe sneaker, and up until now, with the exception of some special releases, his shoes have always come in a standard general release Nike box.

Spike Lee has been a staunch supporter of the Knicks even during its worst days, but with a rejuvenated roster and the remnants of Isiah Thomas’ despicable tenure almost wiped out from memory, it appears that Playoff Basketball will return to Madison Square Garden. Nobody else is more excited about New York Knick Basketball than Brooklyn-native Spike Lee, who attended last night’s game against the cross-river rivals the New Jersey Nets. Spike Lee was donned in his typical Knicks colors – an orange rugby polo, a Hardwood Classic fitted, and the Nike Air Trainer SC in the OG colorway. Check out Spike on courtside after the jump and let us know what you think is the best Knicks-colorway pair of kicks out there! via ESPN.

nike sb dunk mid  1727 Nike SB Dunk Mid Pro   Black   Varsity Red   Mean Green | Available

The Nike Dunk in black and Varsity Red is one of those combinations that’ll be around as long as people love sneakers.  A foundational release in many ways, the Nike SB Dunk Mid pictured above brings this classic combo into the present with the newly de-strapped Dunk Mid SB silhouette.  This pair has seen several little changes since we previewed them a couple months back, from the size/shape/materials used on the side panel Swooshes to eschewing the formerly Mean Green tongue tags in favor of a subtler black look.  Let us know which version you prefer, and if you like what you see, grab yours today from FlatSpot.

air jordan xiii playoffs cabordo ebay 04 Air Jordan XIII Retro ‘Playoffs’ – Available Early on eBay

Not long ago Sneaker News showed you a side-by-side comparison of the Air Jordan XIII ‘Altitude’, pitting the 2005 version against the 2010. In just five years, some noticeable changes were made, but the same can’t be said about the Air Jordan XIII ‘Playoffs’, for which the 2011 Retro version is almost an exact copy of the original 1997 release. Outside of minor changes in color, the materials used are nearly the same, and given that these haven’t seen the light of a day for over a decade, the Playoff XIII should sell fast. Take another look at this upcoming release after the jump and pick up a pair early from cabordo.1 on eBay.

Style: 414571-001
Color: Black/Varsity Red-White-Vibrant Yellow
