It’s here folks – the long-awaited Black Friday release of the Air Jordan IV ‘Bred’. It’s the iconoclast of sneaker design and brazen representative of one of the most bad-ass game-winning plays in the history of sports, period, and even twenty-three years after its initial debut, it is still considered to be the single greatest Air Jordan sneaker of all-time – although the patent-leather loyalist might have some points of argument against that statement. Tomorrow’s release will cap off an amazing year for the Air Jordan IV (even with the Thunder IVs looming), so be sure to get your pair on lock because these won’t last long. If you don’t want to risk missing out, get yours now from shoejocky on eBay.
Air Jordan IV
Black/Cement Grey-Fire Red
lol i poste a sad comment below i went into the mall and found these sitting on shelves in my size 9 so happy now.
got them! awesome!!! i was between the 9 olive and this when i went to the store today..hard decision but 4s > 9s
ps: footlocker in athens has sold only three pairs of AJ 9...not popular here at all.
Glad to finally own a pair of these. Seems like the raffles kept things low key at the mall. Congrats to those who copped.
I wanted these so bad but couldnt get em online fucking depressed have a feeling the retro 11s gonna be the same result
i couldnt get my hands on them like everyone else i sure am not paying over retail for them. but this and the white cement 4s are my favorite shoes. and i couldnt get either one so congrats to every one that got them =]
So I go to copp these at midnight and theres this family of like 6 ppl in front of me, half of whom were obviously copping to resell. I mean I got my pair but this whole bringing ur family to get these js to resell thing gotta stop. Yall messin it up for those of us actually tryin to get a pair at retail.
I was so lucky with these.... walked into footlocker here in aus... at 5pm and the last pair were the display that were size 13... im usually 12 but they fit well...
and here i was assuming that most people in Australia dont give a shit about Jays.... if these flew off on the first day... i cant imagine how it would be in the states...
The quality on these is excellent... the nubuck on it is hella soft too...
im so glad i copped and had luck swing in my favour with these...
I already I have a deadstock pair of the CDP 4's no sense getting them again. Plus I'm tired of JB changing the materials on classics. Who in the hell thought suede would be a good choice of materials, these are gonna get dirty & dusty fast as hell. I know we will never see a Durabuck upper like the OG Playoff 4's but they could have stuck with the Nubuck upper like the 99 & 08 retros. Everybody good luck getting them & be safe.
So glad I got my ticket. I've been ready for these since I knew this was the 23rd anniversary of the 4's. Lord knows how much I want these and how long I've been waiting on em. Release of the year in my opinion.
Damn everyone and their moms are going to try to get these. Good luck to the real dudes getting these. And your reseller/hypebeasts can suck a dick.
I've been waiting on this shoe to drop! Glad I'm doubling up on this one! Good luck to anyone trying to cop, be safe out there! Happy thanksgiving to all my fellow heads... Stay blessed!
Had mine for 5 days now Paid $20 extra but well worth not having the headache of trying to cop.Quality is nice glad I got these finshed my 4 set for this year
@NickBartzis Wrd? yo hook me up w a 9.5 olive 9 ! I misses out n ain't trynna fold to these resellers
@cavematt i feel ya pain man. And its the samething i told evryone who relies for online shopping. So sad. You can neva win
@CreatedByLeon I feel sorry you.. i got 2 pairs..
@DreamChaser Same here
@bfresh89 my guy u way off based. Its nubuck on these a high calibur nubuck. U do kno nubuck can feel as smooth as suede right and almost have the same impression but seude has short or long hair, nubuck is flat and smooth. Secondly the 99's had.durabuck, JB didnt switch to nubuck til 2003. Why do u ppl think durabuck should still be around. You do kno durabuck is outdated and cant compete with nubuck or suede right. Nubuck is the greater of the 3 go look up your materials man better yet wikipedia it. Nobody has used durabuck in years a decade atleast, it was good at that time not now. U missing out on a great release bro, and these wont fold up like the 99's or 08's so quickly
8 or 5 depending on where you live. The regular time Nike releases stuff.
@ShawnCanning where did u get them at?
@PatRiley no disrespect my but where have you been?!? They do not do midnight releases anymore! Nike put an end to that a while ago... I heard some spots held a raffle then I heard some spots were 1st come 1st serve! It's too late too call around now but try your popular mom & pops stores if you can't camp at your local mall! Good luck 2 you
@Foots230 I literally have no idea how ppl get em online I was online at 5am sharp n still didnt get em now its either at ebay frm a smartass reseller or depressed for a month
@MBeezy good for you.
I got a store In Chicago Dude takes orders a month out from release and gives them a week early.I already paid for the 11's so not sweating those either .when I cop the 11's I'll pay for the 5's and 13's lol There's a resturant I go to Right next to a footlocker for breakfast I always go on Release Saturday's wearing what is coming out that day.I ask everyone in line what their waiting it's funny as shit when they look down at my feet.The best part is I confuse the shit outta them by telling them they came out they came out last Saturday they all start googling.Good Times
@NickBartzis don't have a fb pg anymore... but u can jus email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can chat about it bro... appreciate it
