Jordan Brand are celebrating the revered model’s 30th anniversary in the best possible way, restoring Nike Air branding to the heel. It’s a purist’s dream, with the Swoosh’s long-awaited return accompanying OG styling everywhere else.
First released in 1989, the Air Jordan 4 Bred are coming back in 2019 to celebrate their 30th anniversary, and they’re set to feature all the OG detailing that made them so iconic – most notably, the large ‘Nike Air’ hit on the heel, a detail that was last seen in 1999. Combining a black base with cement grey and fire red accents, the Bred’s timeless build still looks just as good as it did when MJ hit ‘The Shot’ in the 1989 NBA Playoffs against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and it’s now set to be one of Jordan Brand’s biggest releases of the year.
It’s been 20 years since the Bred released in its original form and, with projected stock numbers less than first thought, you’re going to have to fight to cop a pair come May 11.
