‘The Shot’ ranks right up there with ‘White Cement’, ‘Elephant print’ and ‘championship ring’ when it comes to two-word phrases associated with Michael and his Air Jordans. The image of MJ driving hard to his left off the inbound, leaping at the top of the key and hanging there as he noosed Craig Ehlo and the Cleveland fans is one that’s been burned into our collective consciousness, and along with it, the immortal legend of the Air Jordan IV. Judging by the number and overall tone of the comments we’ve seen, this ‘Cavs’ AJIV is likely the most popular new Air Jordan Legacy colorway so far in 2012; will you grab a pair when they arrive at select Jordan Brand retailers on May 12th? Let us know when you’re on the other side checking out a new batch of photos, and stick with Sneaker News for all the summer 2012 Jordan Brand release dates. Photos: h-leung on HK
Air Jordan IV ‘Cavs’
Black/Orange Blaze-Old Royal
I'm going to try to get my hands on these. I hope these aren't hyped up too much the next few weeks. Good thing about QS releases they just pop up
Had these for couple weeks, they alright. Some complaints thought about the quality. There was blood and a small child's finger sewn inside the the shoe. Nothing to bad though, got the magic eraser and now it's looking fresh.
need em in my life. i hope all the cats who like all them other plain jane jordans stay home so i can get mine! the hell with the story behind em, i get em to wear them. All that nerdy ass meaning behind them shit dont matter to me. "but you dont know the history behind the shoe" get the fuck outta here, its just a fuckin sneaker!!!
Hopefully pre-ordering mine today. Hope they still have my size b/c I plan on passing on the XI lows for these.
I like them...but can we please not get any post about why they are called the Cavs and not the Knicks...if you know the history you won't make a dumb post like that
Nice. I think they'd look better with like pebbled leather instaed of nubuck but still a good looking shoe. Too bad I won't be able to get my hands on a pair
these look like some bangers man. they look so fake. don't judge me because of my opinion but these are just not for me.
Theres a jordan 4 refered to as an Oreo yet these are degrading...kum on now these are made to commemorate one of the greatest shots Jordan ever took if you cant love the colorway you gotta love what they represent
NO NO NO comeon man!!! well anyway i want and need these....sucks cause im prob gonna have to pay 250+
no it could be either one. the cavs used to be orange and blue as well when jordan beat them in the east conference finals i think it was when he made the shot over Craig Ehlo.
thanks i went to hoh in LA and the manager told me that the retro 12 taxis are gonna be a QS too..................
how the fuck you judge ignorance by an opinion on sneakers? Get off my dick and go back to jackin off to Michael Jordan footage!
i think he meant the colorway itself being put on the IV's... a colorway used from a whole different team
It means just what it means...strikes quick (release date) with less pairs made then a general release ....I believe...
