If you weren’t around during 1989 or not old enough to remember it was a great year for footwear and the 4th installment of the Jordan line offered from Nike helped solidify this. The color’s although simple were vibrant, the use of plastics straps and a large plastic tab on the back just helped make this shoe legendary. When you saw someone come out of the back of a footwear store in the 80’s carrying a black box with the red Jumpman you knew what was up. JB did the right thing by the cements and black red 4’s back in 1999 but the same cannot be said for the fire reds or the military blues. Below are pictures of the ORIGINAL Nike Air jordan IV’s from 1989 enjoy! If you want to check out pictures taken by us at DeFY. New York of the original fire red IV’s click HERE.
