For sneakerheads, perhaps the best confirmation that a potential sneaker will indeed eventually hit the shelves is when official photos of that sneaker are published. While the Jordan release 2016 of the Air Jordan 4 OG ’89 “White Cement” was already more than confirmed, but now that official photos of the sneaker have been seen, it leaves no doubt that it is returning next year. However, much like the Air Jordan 4 OG ’89 “White Cement,” it seems that another iconic colorway of the model is also returning next year and it will also feature Nike Air branding.
The sneaker in question that is making its comeback next year is the Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue,” which was once worn by Kenny Anderson, back during his days as a part of Georgia Tech’s Lethal Weapon 3. It is now being heavily rumored that 2016 is likely going to mark the return of the Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” after nearly 26 years. It was back in 1989 when this sneaker had made its retail debut as an OG colorway of the Air Jordan 4. Jordan Brand has dropped quite a few retro versions of this sneaker ever since, but it is after a very long time that it has received the Nike Air treatment.
Considering how simple the design of the Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” happens to be, it is no wonder that Jordanheads grew fond of this sneaker and it has become quite recognizable over the years. The last time this sneaker hit the shelves in the form of a retro was back in 2012. Next year’s edition will be available in OG form, with a predominantly White upper, along with Military Blue and Neutral Grey accents that can be spotted throughout. A date for the Jordan release 2016 of the Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” remains to be announced, but it is being rumored that it will be up for grabs at the same price as that of the Air Jordan 4 OG ’89 “White Cement,” i.e. $220.
