The Black and Red combination is one that, for obvious reasons, has always been a significant landmark of the Air Jordan story. The Red aspect of that equation has historically been more controversial, most infamously getting Nike into hot water way back in the Air Jordan 1 era with its fiery, rule-breaking palette. And while it’s no secret that Nike benefited a great deal from that little controversy, they did indeed tune down the red sections quite a bit on successive releases. So while the likes of the Air Jordan IV had a “Fire Red” colorway during its initial release, the use of the color was rather toned down and utilized only for the minute yet impactful accents of the sneaker. The Retro Air Jordan treatments have amended the role of red in the lineup, allowing for all sorts of daring colorways that likely would have given whoever is in charge of the NBA uniform guidelines a panic attack were they to hit the court during Mike’s heyday.

Amongst the favorite of red-uppered Air Jordan retros was the Air Jordan V pair from the “Raging Bull/Toro Bravo” Pack of 2009. Keep in mind that the “Raging Bull” nickname was a community selected one as Jordan Brand eventually christened them with “Toro Bravo” shortly before their release. A bit of a sleeper upon its initial retail arrival, the Air Jordan V “Toro” has only climbed in notoriety since, with its current status in the world of collectors perhaps best exemplified by its taking of the Best Non-OG Air Jordan title in our March Madness Sneaker Tournament in 2012. Later that year, Carmelo Anthony would show up with a “Toro”-styled Air Jordan IV on-feet, with those Player Exclusives eventually evolving into this – the Air Jordan IV “Toro”. Witness the Air Jordan IV “Toro” given its proper due in a setting that links it up with the faux wooden box packaging of the aforementioned Air Jordan V, and check back in on Sneaker News for continued exclusive coverage of Jordan Brand’s biggest releases throughout the year.

The Air Jordan IV “Toro” releases on July 13th with a retail price of $160.

Wrong man , the Toro reds Are the same material as the breds and the cavs... The thunders feel just like the CDP 4s. The toros are dark red when you run your hands across them in one direction and light red if you run your hand back the opposite direction. Kind of a sheen or shine to them. And they are a lipstick red "which is a light red. They don't match a red polo shirt. I own them all trust what I say. Or not.

Alright, my bad, you would know! Just saying that's what I looked like to me from the pictures. Thanks for the clarification!

@Memphislee69 That's not how the  pics look. I'll defer to you for now if you got em, but I'll make my own decision when I see em. I don't really ever trust people who got em early though, because they could be bgrades. No offense meant towards you, and I'm sure you're an honest person, but you wouldn't really know if you got bgrades anyways unless you compared them to a pair from footlocker or nike from release day. We'll see. You could be right and that's how they'll come, but THESE pics which could also be fakes/bgrades don't look like they have the material you described. They look like the fire red and military blue 4s' material.

@Memphislee69 i hope they are the same material as the breds and cavs, cuz if not i dont want these anymore....i hate material that creases up!

Not sure why people are worried about creasing on these. These look to be the same material as the Military 4's. I have worn the Military 4's a lot over the last year and they have less creasing than my Bred 4's and I have worn the Breds a lot less. Only thing I'm worried about with this shoe is being able to get a pair.

@BBTrickShot What???? I have way more creasing in my military blues than my breds. I wear them both a lot, but have had the military blues longer so maybe that's why. I think that white leatherish material shows creasing way more than the breds' material. My fire red 4s also seem to crease way more than my breds.

@MartinD44 @BBTrickShot I thought it was weird too! The white does show creases more than I would like but I have been able to keep the creasing way down in the toe box by stuffing it with plastic bags. Worth a try if you have trouble with creasing!
