Air Jordan IV – White – Varsity Red – Black | Release Reminder
After Michael Jordan hit “The Shot” against Craig Ehlo and the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Bulls were sent packin’ home by the Detroit Pistons at the Eastern Conference Finals. So we know MJ wore the ‘Breds’ and ‘White/Cements’ that season, so where did the ‘Fire Red’ fall in? Jordan wore the Air Jordan IV ‘Fire Red’ during the first half of the ’89-’90 season before switching permanently to the Air Jordan V at the 1990 NBA All-Star Game. That season ended in another ECF appearance, before making the jump to the Finals in ’91 (and kicking off his three-peat). Tomorrow, Jordan Brand will release the original Air Jordan IV colorway at retailers, so re-live this piece of Michael Jordan history by copping your pair tomorrow or right now from yellownsxt on eBay.
Air Jordan IV
If you use the word hypebeast, SHUT YOUR MOUTH. There are only wannabes, resellers, and actual sneaker lovers. Fools think theres an actual definition of a hypebeast and sneakerhead in the dictionary. These words are used way too much by people that have completely different meanings for them. I'll break it down: the wannabes got in line so they could copy rappers cuz they have no style of their own and can't think for themselves. They don't ruin the game, but they make it cheesey and lessen the style/shine the shoes have when they wear em. Resellers are in it for profit. THEY RUIN THE GAME THROUGH GREED. Now an actual sneaker lover can resell and trade if they got a pair to keep and actually care for the shoe. But if you just got in line to buy and resell, and went all over town buying whatever you can just to make a profit??? You are a RESELLER. You buy what you don't want or need and steal that opportunity from someone who actually wants them. YOU ARE RUINING THE GAME. YOU ARE THE SCUM OF THE EARTH. Hypebeast???? I think a lot of people think thats some new kid in the sneaker game who really wants a pair of shoes and will camp or do whatever they need to get em. To me that just sounds like a young cat, rookie though they may be, who really wants some shoes. To me theres no difference between them and an OG sneaker lover except age and maybe some knowledge. But any kid can go online and read all about the shoe if they want. They can even read what some OG wrote about em on his blog or talked about on youtube, and then they'll have just as much knowledge. So really the difference is the age. EVERYONE except resellers really wants em so WE'RE ALL HYPEBEASTS. Personally I grew up and followed Jordan after the first retirement. The 12s released when I was young and I had the OG flu games, but for the most part it was Penny's time, so i mostly had his shoes with a tim duncan posite type of shoe( can't think of the name right now) thrown in there. When I stopped playin ball in school I forgot about dope bball shoes and wore skate shoes. Now I've come back strong and am in rebuild mode. I AM NOT A WANNABE, but yea my collection is 2011 forward. So what??? Why would I spend 500+ on anything prior to 2011 that will just fall apart when I wear em once??? Stop the hate sneakerlovers, we all want the same thing: retros with good quality, that don't alter the original shoe's concept/look for a more reasonable price. ITS THE RESELLERS WE HAVE TO SHUT DOWN.
I got mine around 5 pm today at foot locker and they only had one pair of each size.... i don't understand!
Seems like people call each other hypebeast because they get angry with each other. You guys overuse hypebeast. You call every one a hypebeast if they became a sneakerhead after you.Its not fair, You started becoming a sneakerhead and no one judged you so why judge me.
I agree that the shoe game is not the same and probaly never will be again. i been collecting since like 94 and a lot has changes. Jordans use to come out during the week but now its the weekend cause kids was cutting school for them. With them released on a saturday now everybody has a chance and they sell out quicker. A lot of shoes didnt have release dates, you would go into the store one day and they were out on display. The economy is another reason cause people are looking at the easiest way to get fast money and this is legal so more people are jumping on it. I say it started to change really when the price went up to 150. The 4s where 99.00 now look at them. Jordans have been selling out for a while depends on colorway but not like how it is now. We have sites that remind you about them every week and build up the hype for others. It really changed last december with the concords tho. People seen all on the news what happened and it turned there attention to shoes and what people will do for them. So then people said let me get them and see what somebody might pay for them. Now mostly every Jordan is selling out that came out this year. The blue 10s and the black grey 10s were nothing but sold out. 4 years ago they wouldve sat on shelves the red and silver didnt sell out that fast when they dropped. People have this hate for hypebeast but at the same time with technology and sites now you know waaaay ahead of time when a shoe is dropping and price so if u want them you have plenty of time to get ya money together or figure a way to get them..theres nothing u can do bout it. I dont hate them or like them..it is what it is..I dont have plugs all like that but i been doin this for a long time so i know how to get my shoes if i want them if its going threw the employee entrance before the mall opens or people jus reconizing me..you jus gotta plan ahead or know where to go and stay ahead of the next person. These mars 4s i aint worried about cause i got the 06..aint no need to get another pair like the 06 will be worth more than the 12..the people that are hype about theses are people who jus started getting into or back into shoes
I don't think the "Game" is ruined its not a game its buying sneakers and because a shoe is nice people want it so it's just who wants it more, when I got the 7s a dude was there the afternoon before if you want them bad enough then you can get em just goes to show you
EVERYBODY, we ar talking about shoess. they are justtt shoes. STOPP with this Obsession for shoesss. I admit I used to love and dream with shoes, but I realized this sh*t is called Obsession
I hate how everyone young kid trying to get a pair of Jordans is just right away considered a hype beast. Everyone needs to start somewhere.
Man, i personally have the mars 4, i know the difference but i am passing. I feel like hypebeast r gonna truly kill this game. Its at such a high peak right now i feel like it will only drop instead of more and more of nike retros dropping. I mean how many times can BRED 11 get retroed. How many times will these shoes retro. Its really taking away from the ppl who got the earlier retros that they get no love for having em, cuz some dumb ass ignorant kid will say i got those last month nothing special. Hypeast have killed the game. I know i know its like we all complain about it anf still cop, but this game is dying now!!! Of course hypebeast consider themselves real sneaker heads cuz "oh i always liked kicks" thats lame to me. Its lame because u should know ur place and not try to act like someone who has been collecting for yrs. if u couldnt afford before i understand i apologize but know ur place!!
Too bad my son has to eat this week or I would be coppin. Maybe I can get a decent reseller price next week. Or Nike.com will have a restock like the military blues.
all this hypebeast hate is funny, get down there when the so called "hypebeast" get down there, and get your own pair then. Quit hating on people getting down there early enough to get a pair. Half the time I get two pairs for me and my buddy because he has to work. But if you supposed nonhypebeast get down there and beat me to it, than my loss. I dont blame hypebeast, I blame myself for not being on point. Get Real. the definition of a sneakerhead is widely open to people who love sneakers, even if they re-sell them, they are still providing to the people who missed out in there area. Its these people who claim to be real sneakerheads, that say its to crazy trying to get these releases now days because of all the hypebeast. It seems to me that its these hypebeast that are the real sneakerheads, if there the ones copping them, because there down there getting them, while you "real sneakerheads" are b*tching about it at home. You dont like paying an extra 20+ dollars, get down there and put your time in. Its not like the stores sell to hypebeast first, they sell to the first people down there.
evenutally everybody gets money so the kids that didn't have it back then can afford if now... Not saying I like whats going on with all these hypebeast and resellers, cuz it hurts my chances on getting my shoes and I end up paying more money for something I couldve got for retail price. #IJS
I'd grab a pair if I didn't have to go to war to getem. The game is not the same. I'd rather pay $20 more to a reseller than stand in line for hrs and not get a pair cus some snot nosed kid camped out. Too old for that BS. Good luck fellas!
wow been waiting years to get these again. Ever since my mom gave away my mars. I remember getting them too, just walked in the store,tried them on paid for them and walked out. Man it was simple back then nowadays its like tha god dawn dmv...smh. Good luck to rest of you guys. Fuck hypebeats
@DreamChaser I COPPED EASY TOO,AND UNDER RETAIL.I DONT THINK ANYONE SHOULDA HAD A PROBLEM COPPIN.HELL, DICKS SPORTING GOODS WAS SELLING THEM!! NOW U KNO THEY WERE MASS PRODUCED! IM ALREADY SEEING RESELLERS ALL DESPERATE SELLIN THEM FOR LIKE $180 CAUSE YOU'D BE STUPID TO PAY $200+ FOR THOSE
@Rashard79 I feel u bro but back on the 4's u might still want a fresh pair for later on those 06's wont hold up forever.
@Air Steve thats whats up
@Rsilva In the end, no one has to pay a resell price if they get to a store at the early enough time as the "hypebeast" are getting theres. they arent some sneaker magician, they are on point with the release.
@GordonTog LMAOOO!ARE YOU SERIOUS??! ahha words from a real "hypebeast" and "wannbe sneakerhead" hahahha...not sure if your serious man...thats ridulous...obsievly you havn't been in the game for long regradless of what you say i'm speaking off of what i read..lmao...be serious! these children out here are ruining the damn shoegame all over the place there all followers man...all their doing is following pop culture&each other...like i've said many times this is a generation of followers...this is just a fad right now...These children have NO REASON to be in the shoegame THEY HAVE NO IDEA who the hell michael jordan is F out of here be serious..they just think it's cool they have NO LOVE for sneakers..they have love&thirst for HYPE they have love 4whatever is hot! look at these children i mean they all followed ea other when they all wore women jeans!comon! put 1&1 together all these lame 15-20yr old wannbe sneakerheads want2be token serious like if their "real sneakerheads" lmao look at the top comment...they ACTUALLY THINK!!!! they are real sneakerheads....comon**LOOK PLAIN AND SIMPLE! IF YOU STARTED TRYING TO BE IN THE SHOEGAME LAST YEAR! YOOU! ARE A WANNABESNEAKERHEAD!!!
@GordonTog Seriously you make me fuckin sick with all that bullshit justification.
@GordonTog A reseller is not a sneakerhead...they are ppl thats ruining the game...if they loved sneakers y would they sell em?I have a connect at a shoe store so I dont have to camp out or worry about getting a pair but I still dont like the hypebeats...it defeats the purpose...the only thing they've done is make the prices go up and make the shoes feel less valuable to ppl who truly love coppin J's
@DreamChaser not only that- they were sitting for weeks!!!
@CC221 dicks sporting goods ha what u saw them there or what
@Air Steve I still like Js but men I ain't spending 160+ on shoes anymore. It is wht it is. JB is getting rich out off everybody's pockets. The true is the true , they ar justt Shoess
@GordonTog I definitely understand that, my whole thing is y all of a sudden. 3 yrs ago it wasnt like this
@jordansince1988 nice. Maybe you should go to a smaller town then!! seriously. And I probably been doing this longer than you and have way more sneakers than you. I, however, know how to grow/work with change, even though the change was years ago, not 2. but you keep thinking like you do. while Im copping my pairs tomorrow, people like you will be talking about how they couldnt get a pair, when they dont even try. who cares how many people there are, there are plenty of sneakers in stores to go round. Put in the effort everyone else does, even if you think its too much for a sneaker. oh but wait your the sneakerhead. lol. ya right. a sneakerhead will do whatever he has to, to get the shoe he wants. I sold 20 pairs of mine to get some yeezy 2's. and didnt cry about it.
@JonRich its the truth.
@TreyNine did you ever think they buy 6 pairs to get a pair for free. Still sneakerheads, there just smart about getting there pair. but yet they still have to be down at the store at a early enough time to get them, which is what these other people should try doing if they dont like paying more once they sell out. All "real sneakerheads" might trying get there early and they could get there own pair. beat these, so called hypebeast, down there. Its quite simple math, using time.
@CC221 Wish we could get rid of all the hypebeasts and resellers. This wasnt something that was meant to be exploited for money, and popularity. Its supposed to be for those of us that loved MJ, that love Jordans, and that love shoes in general. The way its changed the last 2 years has left a bad taste in my mouth honestly.
@CC221 yup that's the real sneaker head motto
@CC221 thnx for the info bra ima peep it out see if i can get a pair fuck waiting one whole week i want those badboys on my feet now ;)
@DreamChaser yea man i was shocked,i had copped mine by then already but they had a full size run and the dude told me not one person had gone there for those .
@GetRealplease I hate to say we all feel that way but as soon as you say that something will draw u back in
@hozezae ya for real, I remember over 3 years ago easy, all my stores were still selling out all day. I dont know what hes talking about, remember the days, 2 years ago. lol
@TreyNine @GordonTog yea but those were the retro 2's, many of ppl dont care for those its the 3-13 thats the problem
@GordonTogtechnically is it smart on their part? Yes but its still ruining the game at the end of the day...ill be glad of & when this phase is over and things go back to how they used to be. I remember 2 yrs ago I walked in Footlocker randomly (weeks after the release date) and copped the White/Red/Black 2's with no pressure...those were the days
@JonRich i agree
right??..like i cant respect these dudes whos sneaker collections date back only to the 2011 black cements. it seems like thats when everyone jumped on the wagon.
@CC221 you feel like me homie. i be seeing fools i knew for years standing in line and i be like "when he started wearing j's??" everybody wanna be apart of the in crowd nowadays. if ur not a true jordan fan fallback!!!!!
you and me both man.this is what happens when kids look up to rappers and rappers are now trynna act like they been sneakerheads for decades.the first and last time i camped out was for the cement 4's this past february and i will never do it again.the amount of cornballs in that line was enough to make me not want no part of this anymore.every release it just gets more and more ridiculous.
