As part of celebrating the Air Jordan 3’s 30th anniversary this year, Jordan Brand brought back the “Black/Cement” colorway. It joined this year’s Air Jordan releases 2018 on February 17th. The special thing about the return of the Air Jordan 3 “Black/Cement” was that it once again featured the “Nike Air” branding on its heels, which was last seen on this iteration back in 2001. Of course, many original Air Jordan 4 colorways will also return next year for its 30th anniversary. In fact, Jordan Brand is bringing back both the Air Jordan 4 “Bred” and the Air Jordan 6 “Infrared,” both with the heel “Nike Air” branding.
In addition to the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4 since its debut back during the 1989 NBA All-Star Game, 2019 also marks the 20th anniversary of the first Air Jordan 4 Retro from 1999. The Air Jordan 4 “Bred” was brought back in 2012, but it was lacking the “Nike Air” branding on the heels. Of course, this will not be the first time that Jordan Brand has brought back an original Air Jordan 4 colorway with the heel “Nike Air” branding. In fact, this was the case with the Air Jordan 4 “White/Cement,” which was re-released during the 2016 All-Star Weekend.
The Air Jordan 6 “Black/Infrared” or simply “Infrared” was one of the original colorways of the model released after its debut back in 1991. Ever since its original retail debut, this colorway has been re-released twice. When it was brought back in 2000, it still featured the “Nike Air” branding on the heels. However, when it was re-released in 2014, it lacked the heel “Nike Air” branding. Coincidentally, pairs from the 2014 re-release are still available at retailers like Stadium Goods. Nonetheless, next year’s Air Jordan 6 “Infrared” pairs will certainly resemble the original ones as accurately as possible, down to every last detail.
Keep in mind that none of the photos that you see here of the versions that will be among next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019. Currently, no release information is available for the Air Jordan 4 “Bred.” However, the Air Jordan 6 “Infrared” will reportedly hit the shelves once again on February 16th, 2019.
