In 1989, Nike, Michael Jordan, and Tinker Hatfield introduced the Air Jordan IV to the world. By then, Michael was a well-established scoring phenom in the league, coming off of two straight scoring titles and Slam Dunk championships. Michael had his eyes set on the larger prize, and later in the ’89 Playoffs, Michael would make his postseason stamp with a buzzer-beating, series ending game winner over Craig Ehlo – one of the most picturesque moments in NBA history. The Air Jordan IV began its roots in four original colorways, one of which was the Off White/Military Blue colorway. After a long, seventeen-year wait, the Military IV was re-issued in Fall 2006, and better yet, Sneaker News reported the return of the Military IV again for 2012. Original pairs of the Air Jordan IV in Off White/Military Blue are extremely rare, especially in deadstock condition. Although no longer wearable, these would make the perfect conversation piece of your collection or display. Thanks to Josh for the heads up, and you can get in on the bidding for these vintage Jordans now from radioclash77 on eBay.
