Many recent Sneaker News headlines have focused on the various ‘Gold Medal’ and otherwise Olympic Air Jordans set to hit retailers in the coming months, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of other classics on tap for what figures to be the most densely packed summer on record.  This Air Jordan 4 Retro hearkens back to the original ‘Fire Red’ edition that was reprised in 2006 with the ‘Mars Blackmon’ face on the heels, but unlike that ’06 Varsity Red edition, these come sans Spike.  That seems more than fair given the success of the Son of Mars and Spike Lee’s insane Foamposite PEs, but would the OG shade of red make these more of a lock (especially given the stiff competition)?  Let us know when you’re on the other side checking out a new batch of photos, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for the exact release date on this August 2012 drop.  Photos: SA

You bitches need to shut up, this looks off, the red looks off, have you bastards just agreeing with others and the other half still gone buy these anyways tho they say something looks off. The red is a bright red it looks fire red which is the OG color. Varsity red is still cool I'm not complaining bout u guys are. Its an early pic goddamitt. Besides varsity red runs light to dark, bright to dull, but at the end of the day its just a color see y'all at the release

I'll let everyone complain about quality, and no look pass all they want...as for me myself I'm copping these and the bred 4s no hesitation! All these broads on here complaining about every release is getting old...pull ya'll skirts down or buy some Adiddas or something....SMH #clowns

Here's a history lesson for all the hypebeasts and fake sneaker heads who don't know when MJ wore the Fire Red 4's. The Fire Red's weren't released until November of 1989, which was also the beginning of the 89-90 season. He wore them from November of 89' to February of 1990 which is when the Jordan 5's were dropped. I been looking at the recent comments on these and everybody knows these are gonna sell anyway. Yes the paint and quality sucks, it looks like a 5yr. old painted it on there but I wanted a Pair of Fire Red's without the MARS logo and this is as close as we're gonna get to the OG. I'm gonna cop bc I want them......and they were 1st dropped the same month and year I was born.

i agree the red on these is a little off looks more like ketchup red than fire red..also the these look like they werent put together too well the glue job and stitching is off point and am not even one to complain i dont demand perfection or anything i just dont like being able to tell that my shoes were made by 5 year old kids from china

Your release date is wrong. I got mine in July of 1989 for my birthday. I was in Atlanta on vacation. I entered High School (was a freshman) in 1989 and Iwas killing everybody in Denver, CO., because these didn't drop out here. Yes, they were a late release, but they came out in the summer of '89, not November. The OG Fire Red IV's were my first pair of Jordans. I've been in love with this colorway ever since. I couldn't stand how they ruined them in '06 with that darn Spike face on the heel.

That was the first thing I noticed. They have the strings too tight, distorts the shape too much.

You can say that again! But I hope everyone hates these so I can get mine with out fighting a mob or have to break onto an all out sprint across a mall parking lot when the air horn sounds by mall security!!! I'm way to old to be racing kids across a parking lot and WAY to fat!!!!

These are B grades not the release pair im pretty sure.

Screaming for better quality on a sneaker website isn't really going to fix it, people are still going to buy the shoes...if you have a problem with the quality how about you send it into the actual Jordan Brand mailing address instead of a url?
