Original Release: 1989

Even if Buggin' Out didn't get his foot run over by a bike-wielding Celtics fan, the white/cement Air Jordan IVs would have been legendary. Spike Lee had already done his part as Mars Blackmon, and by 1989 the Air Jordan was firmly entrenched as a status symbol, both urban and suburban. And Tinker Hatfield's second Air Jordan design was as groundbreaking as his first, making use of synthetic leather and mesh to make a lighter, more breathable shoe.
