Air Jordan IV “Blue Speckle” – Unreleased 1999 Sample

March 11th, 2013 by / 16

What would you get if you fused the original Air Jordan IV ‘White/Cement’ and the ‘Military Blue’? Chances are you’d get something very close to this unreleased sample of the Air Jordan IV Retro. This incredibly rare piece was created during the 1999 first-ever Retro release of the Air Jordan IV using the famous speckle-print detailing on the midsole and the eyelet ‘wings’ on the upper and composed with a classic White/Navy/UNC Blue colorway. However, it’s clear that this was scrapped in favor of the “Columbia Blue” colorway, which shares some identical features like the Jumpman on the heel-tab and the embroidered logo on the tongue. The version that actually did release introduced the leather perforated panel in place of the classic mesh and had far more Navy on the midsole with just minute hints of Columbia blue around the shoe. This is definitely a unique find and the seller only claims to have the left shoe, so take a look at the gallery below from adam837 on eBay.

Imagine if JB released these today, almost every single person would be screaming and crying about how horrendous and ugly these are and how bad JB has become.  Since they are an OLD sample it's then a great, hmmmm.


just a qustion : it's from 99 and there is no Nike Air ? But a jumpman ? Is that normal lol ? Too strange for a sample before 2001...


now this is what JB should be releasing instead of all these whack spizike CW's for the same price

What intrigues me about these is the dimple or hole in the mesh netting.  I've never seen that before.  Definately better than the perferated leather crap that kept me from buying them the 1st time out. Also plastic "wings" versus the soft ones that came out that year & on the 'Black Cat', 'Pure', & 'Mist Blue' models froma few years back.  Please issue!



Yep. They made the right decision by not releasing these. 


Lol if these came out it'd be just another for me to add to the list!


Looking at this colorway, reminds me of the columbia 4s.. 

speaking of which, JB should retro them!


my lord those are awesome

@Souledge Jordan brand started with Jordan 4 + in 1999. There were 3 c/w's and none of them had mesh netting, they had perfect leather instead. They all had a jumpman on back. BD
