As the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4 continues, its OG “Bred” colorway is scheduled to return and join Air Jordan releases 2019. Jordan Brand kicked off the Air Jordan 4’s 30th anniversary celebration earlier this year with the release of an NRG “Hot Punch” iteration for women on January 19th, 2019. A number of brand new Air Jordan 4 colorways have arrived at retailers ever since, including an exclusive “Wings” iteration that was gifted to James Whitner, the owner of Social Status. Amidst March Madness, Jordan Brand also unveiled give different college PE colorways of the Air Jordan 4 that will not be hitting the shelves.
Due to its 30th anniversary this year, most Air Jordan releases 2019 will be Air Jordan 4 colorways, such as the latest one dubbed “Hot Lava.” Earlier last month, the Air Jordan 4 “Berry Pink” made its retail debut on February 9th, 2019 at a price of $140. The color scheme made it obvious that it had designed for female sneakerheads and while not explicitly stated, this colorway was essentially Jordan Brand’s Valentine’s Day release. Furthermore, it was also meant to be a part of Jordan Brand’s historic “For The Love Of The Game” series due to the little “basketball heart” logo it featured on its True Berry-colored uppers.
“Black Leather” and “Hot Punch” colorways of the Air Jordan 4 already joined last month’s Air Jordan releases 2019 and more are on their way. Back in January, Jalen Ramsey also shared a photo of a Jacksonville Jaguars-themed Air Jordan 4“Laser” iteration. Earlier this month, @hanzuying also posted the very first photos of this 2019 version of the Air Jordan 4 “Bred” on Instagram, one of which is featured below. Of course, as you may know, it is the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4 this year. Hence, it should be expected that plenty of other Air Jordan 4 colorways will hit the shelves in the coming months.
For the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4, several new colorways of the model will be joining next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019. You may already know about the two Air Jordan 4 colorways that draw inspiration from Spike Lee’s comedy–drama film, Do the Right Thing. Based on the Photoshop illustrations, one of the two iterations seemed like it borrowed the colors from the Gucci stripes. Of course, they are both actually inspired by the Italian flag and “Sal’s Pizzeria” from the film. In addition to these two colorways though, many others will arrive next year to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4.
After a long time, an upcoming Air Jordan 4 colorway that will join next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will be featuring patent leather. When it comes to the sneaker models from Jordan Brand’s signature line, patent leather is typically associated with the Air Jordan 11 since its mudguard overlays are made up of the glossy material. The Air Jordan 11 was the first model from Jordan Brand to feature patent leather as a signature element. Of course, this does not mean that patent leather has not appeared on other Air Jordan models in the past. In fact, even the Air Jordan 4 has featured patent leather before.
Will Mark Wahlberg‘s latest exculsive sneaker from Jordan Brand end up joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018? It likely will not. Being one of Michael Jordan’s oldest friends and having a longstanding relationship with Jordan Brand certainly seem to have its perks. They apparently include receiving exclusive Air Jordan colorways every now and then. This indeed happens to be the case with Mark Wahlberg, who is a diehard Air Jordan fan with a collection worth envying. Although the photo at the top is a recent one, the Air Jordan 4 “Wahlburgers” PE you see in it was actually first seen earlier this year back in June.
