Air Jordan IV

Released: 1989

Complex says: With the first attempts to add lighter materials, the Jordan IV gets covered in mesh on the tongue and side panels and plastic "wings" for lateral support. ‘Flight’ is added to the tongue to inspire young ballers to take flight on the basketball court. Another first for the Jordan IV was that it was an international release which was a hit on the global markets. This drop is perhaps best remembered for its star turn in Spike Lee's “Do the Right Thing.”
