While the Jordan Brand archive is certainly vast, there are not that many original colorways that have received the retro treatment properly. Fortunately, this year marked the Air Jordan 4 in several of its lifestyle colorways from the early 2000. However, that apparently did not prove to be enough to satisfy avid Jordanheads, which is likely the reason Jordan Brand chose to bring back the Nike Air branding and replace the Jordan Jumpman logo. One notable returning retro that will feature the Nike Air logo is the Air Jordan 4 “White/Cement” and it is scheduled for a Jordan release date 2016.
News regarding the inclusion of the Air Jordan 4 OG ’89 “White/Cement” among next year’s Jordan 2016 releases has been circulating for quite some time now. Some reports hinting the potential retail debut of this classic retro sneaker in February 2016 had also surfaced long before its actual release date had been announced and confirmed. However, the Air Jordan 4 OG ’89 will not be the first Air Jordan Retro sneaker to return to its roots in recent times sporting original Nike branding. The heel and outsole of the Air Jordan 6 Retro Maroon, which is making its comeback on December 5th, also sport the Nike Air logo.
While Air Jordan aficionados already know what the Air Jordan 4 OG ’89 “White/Cement” looks like and have seen plenty of new photos of the returning sneaker, but MySole.net recently posted some new ones. While this Air Jordan 4 color also received the retro treatment back in 2012 after being originally introduced back in 1999, but this will be the first time since its original debut that this sneaker arrives at retailers with Nike Air branding.
While there is still plenty of time, perhaps Jordanheads may want to mark February 13th, 2016 on their calendars for the Jordan release 2016 of the Air Jordan 4 “White/Cement.” At the moment, various sources suggest that it will retail for a price of $220.
