Another original colorway of the Air Jordan 4 is reportedly making its return in 2024. According to trusted sneaker leaker accounts @zSneakerheadz and Sneaker Files, the “Military Blue” Air Jordan 4 is coming back next year.

Unlike the “Bred” Air Jordan 4 that’s also reportedly returning in 2024 with a leather upper instead of nubuck, next year’s “Military Blue” Air Jordan 4 retro is expected to feature original specs—including “Nike Air” branding on the heel tab. The mock-up depiction provided by the leaker accounts suggests that the forthcoming retro will feature its traditional white leather construction on the upper, with a grey mudguard at the forefoot and blue accents on the eyestay, tongue, and midsole. According to the accounts, the sneaker will be available in full-family sizing.

The “Military Blue” Air Jordan 4 was originally released in 1989 and was first retroed in 2006. The style was last available in 2012.

At the time of writing, the “Military Blue” Air Jordan 4 is rumored to hit retailers in Summer 2024. Check back soon to Sole Collector for new developments including a first look in the coming months.

UPDATE (04/22): Nike has confirmed on SNKRS that it's allowing select members a chance to buy the "Industrial Blue" Air Jordan 4 ahead of the scheduled May 4 launch. Starting on April 25, Exclusive Access will go out to members who were unsuccessful in copping at least two Air Jordan 4s from January 1, 2023 to March 1, 2024. It's worth mentioning that receiving Exclusive Access doesn't guarantee the availability of the sneakers or your desired size.
