Is it any surprise that Michael Jordan's greatest year came wearing the Air Jordan IV? MJ may have not racked up the hardware that he did in other seasons, but the fact that his best numbers came wearing the IV is a testament to sneakers becoming (and remaining) popular because of the great performances that took place in them. Right, Craig Ehlo?
