The Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” is one of those original colorways of the model that Michael Jordan never laced up in back when it debuted in 1989. Instead, Kenny Anderson, who was playing for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at the time, was the one who rocked this Air Jordan 4 iteration. Among the original colorways of the Air Jordan 4, the “Military Blue” was the only one that was not directly inspired by the Chicago Bulls, which becomes quite obvious from its color scheme. It is being rumored that this iteration may end up making a comeback next year to join the Air Jordan releases 2019.
Twenty-three years after its original debut, the Air Jordan 4 Retro “Military Blue” hit the shelves back on June 9th, 2012 and retailed at a price of $160. Rumors that this colorway would be potentially re-released had been circulating since back in April 2011. Back in June 2014, a giveaway contest also took place for a free Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” pair. Back in December 2015, it was being rumored that it would return during the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend, which did not end up happening. Instead, it might be among next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019, likely being brought back for the Air Jordan 4’s 30 anniversary.
This year’s retro version of the Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” will likely resemble the original as closely as possible. So like the original, its uppers will be predominantly clean White, with Military Blue and Neutral Grey appearing throughout as secondary hues. The Air Jordan 4’s tongues, which are known for being relatively longer, will perhaps feature the “Jumpman” logo with “Flight” beneath it. Moreover, the “Nike Air” branding will reportedly appear over the heels, insoles and outsoles. So far, release details and information are scarce, apart from the fact that it is likely to return in 2019 and will apparently retail at a price of $220.
