History Of The Air Jordan Brand

In 1984, Nike was a struggling shoe company looking for ways to appeal to a new segment of the shoe market, and to reinvent themselves. Nike has turned to rookie Michael Jordan to order to make an endorsement deal, but MJ showed no interest at all. MJ had plans to sign a deal with either Adidas or Converse; he loved the brands, and in North Carolina, these were the shoes that wore to play basketball in. Unfortunately, both of the brands rejected him.

Nike was offering to create a brand new line of shoes called Air Jordan, and MJ’s old agent, David Falk, saw this as a wonderful opportunity. MJ flew to the Nike headquarters in Portland, Oregon, after being convinced by his parents , and his agent. During his visit, Nike has shown him a special video presentation of his college career highlights, plus his high-flying Olympics moves with Pointer Sister’s “Jump” playing in the background. Peter Moore, Nike’s Old Head Designer, also shown MJ sketches of the Air Jordan 1, and apparel to go with it. It was featured in Black and Red, and MJ was very interested with these designs. He has stated: “I can’t wear these shoes, those are devil colors”.

MJ has decided to finally make a deal with Nike, and has signed a 5-year deal that was worth $2.5 million. MJ has fueled the success of Nike, and the Air Jordan Brand is still popular today.

Air Jordan 4 History

The Air Jordan 4 was introduced back in 1989, created by the infamous Tinker Hatfield. This shoe was the first Jordan to feature over-molded mesh; the mesh was dipped in soft plastic and air was blown through it to clear out the plastic. Back in 1989, everyone felt that the sneaker was unattractive and no one liked them. But overtime, it grew on a lot of people. During their first release, the sneaker was retailed at $110.00.

Features Of The Shoe

This sneaker consist of a cool grey, charcoal, chrome, and maize colorway. The upper is dressed in grey followed by the white and black midsole. Finally, the jumpman logos on the heels are colored in chrome, while hits of varsity maize can be found on the Flight branding on the tongues plus the air heel bubble units, inner tongue, and outsole as well.

Release Date

We have been awaiting this colorway for a long time, and the wait is over. The OG has returned today, and I wouldn’t turn them now if I were you. GO AND COP A PAIR NOW!!!

  1. Wow! The return of the beauty after 15 years will surely make it a worthy wait. Firstly, thanks for takung us into the life of Michael Jordan and exactly how his story went down and also all his major achievements. This air Jordan 4cool grey seems to be a very awesome sneakers especially being a classic returning after 15years. I’m sure it’s going to bring a touch of special ambience and confidence along and also, the pricing is within budget. Great post

    • Hello Ro, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content!!

  2. Love me some basketball shoes! I used to hoop (still kinda do) and I’ve owned like a handful of kicks until they wore out (I had D. Lillard’s 2 and J. Harden’s Vol. 2) I loved those shoes, mainly because they were low top. I really like the look of these shoes, but do you know how they perform on the actual hardwood? They seem kinda chunky, but maybe your expertise can change my mind.

    • Hello Jose, thanks for the comment. These would definitely do well on the hardwood basketball 🏀 court. 

  3. Hey my man, with me being from Chicago, the Chicago Bulls were on top of the NBA back in the 90’s. No team could beat them. Teams would come into town, roll into the United Center and get their asses kick! Basketball & football was my two favorite sports. 

    I remember back in the day, my friends and I would go out to the field and play sports. We would decide right there, what it would be. You think basketball is easier than football? Try playing either sport with a bunch of roughneck kids whose only desire is to win at any cost!

    • Hello RJ, thanks for the comment. To be honest, I’m better at Football 🏈 than I am basketball 🏀, so I would have to say football 🏈. 

  4. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention!  It’s been forever since I’ve seen these babies.

    I didn’t realize the real Nike/MJ dynamic.  I honestly thought it was just an advertising gimmick but had no idea of its true importance.

    Out of curiosity…  Why do you recommend eBay as the place to grab them?

    Thanks again,

         Scott

    • Hello Scott, thanks for the comment. I do recommend that you purchase them from Ebay, but make sure to do research on the seller that you plan to purchase them from (positive feedback, overall ratings, shipping speed, etc). 

  5. Hi Hamed,

    I really enjoyed the reading!

    My son is a big fan of Michael Jordan, but he doesn’t know about his history. I’ll show him this article; I am sure he will love it.

    Anyway, I was looking for a great pair of shoes for basketball for my son, and this pair of Air Jordan seems really attractive and comfortable. Are there other colors available? Maybe black will not get dirty quickly. 

    Also, it would be very helpful if you could give away some good tips on how to clean them:)

    Thank you for this great post!

    • Hello Daniella, thanks for the comment. I recommend getting the Kiwi Suede cleaning kit for these. Also, here are some tips for cleaning suede sneaker:

      1. Shake the suede cleaner can well before use.

      2. Remove any loose dirt from the sneaker by using a brush or scrubby cap.

      3. Hold the spray can 6 inches away from the sneaker, and then spray to coat evenly.

      4.Use a dry and soft cloth and wipe them clean.

  6. Nice to these beauties back. I like a lot this model but I’m not sure about the color. I would like to see a review for a more colorful model.

    Also, do you think these would go well with long dark socks or something more colored?  

    And finally, how easy is it to wash them? I really like keeping my sneakers tidy. Can you reccomend a good cleaning kit?

    Thanks a lot!

    • Hello Teodor, thanks for the comment. These would look great with dark socks, but you can also rock some socks in cool grey and maize as well. Also, I recommend that you purchase the KIWI Suede and Nubuck Boot and Shoe Care Kit. Your nearest Walmart should have it, or http://www.kiwicare.com.

  7. I blame my father for conditioning me to only wear Nike products on my feet ever since I was a child, but I can’t help myself. 

    I really only wear shoes that are mostly black, or are some shade gray, so these look to be right up my alley. The bits of gold/yellow infused into the shoe just make it look special.

    Thanks for the heads up, I gotta check these out!

  8. This is a really good review on the new air Jordan 4. I didn’t know about this particular product but the picture I’m looking at looks really awesome and I feel I need to cop one of this. The features are really good but I think one would need to wash them regularly seeing that they get dirty pretty easy. I’m sure though that they’ll bring comfort to the feet. It’s been 15 years so this one is a rebirth. I’d definitely get one. Thanks for reviewing this.

  9. Thank you very much for this post.

    I absolutely loved MJ. Complete fan even though I wasn’t really into sports. Oh, but the Chicago Bulls, when Michael Jordan was in it, was truly something. I didn’t miss a single game. 

    Now, he’s retired and I have a toddler who would love these shoes. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Gonna have to check the sizes out and relive the glory days. 

    Love it!

  11. I used to be obsessed over Air Jordans when I was a kid, and I remember the 4 Cool Grey versions! This is like a blast from the past lol. I know some people say they are overpriced, but in my opinion Jordans are worth it because of how high quality they are and how comfortable they are to wear. Thanks for writing this up.
