One of three OG, and hence coveted, Air Jordan 4 colorways, the “Fire Red” gets a long-awaited, and only third, retro in history this week. The Nike Air Jordan 4 “Fire Red” makes its return on November 28, but you can secure a pair ahead of that release date by scrolling down
Re-issued in 2006 and 2012, the Air Jordan 4 “Fire Red” first dropped in 1989, designed by Tinker Hatfield. It happens to be one of the few Jordan releases that have kept coveted status despite only being retroed a small number of times.
It’s not just the “Fire Red” colorway that’s iconic here, though. The Air Jordan 4 silhouette has held legendary status pretty much ever since Michael Jordan wore the sneaker when making “The Shot” against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 1989 playoffs, securing a place in the NBA semi-finals for the Chicago Bulls.
Staying mostly true to the original release, a white leather upper is contrasted with black and “Fire Red” detailing, keeping the rubber netted underlays and red midsole in place. This time around, though, the “Nike Air” branding returns to the heel in place of the Jumpman logo for the first time since on the OG “Fire Red” AJ4 in 1989.
StockX market data on the new “Fire Red” Jordan 4 shows that it’s currently selling for an average of $194 on the site, which is under its expected retail price. Its 52-week high reached $375, meaning that it’s a smart time to cop a classic.
