One of the most popular Air Jordans on the market today, the Air Jordan 4 returns dressed in an attractive combination of Fire Red, Wolf Grey, and white in a color blocking that Jordan should definitely consider adding to their Fall 2022 lineup! The Air Jordan 4 is at its peak currently and it’s not difficult to see why, Jordan Brand has been killing it with all the recent releases and concept artists are quick to follow with their own takes on either OG colorways or entirely new art pieces. Presenting, the Air Jordan 4 Fire Red Wolf Grey!
In the NBA All-Star Game in February 1989, Michael Jordan made his official debut wearing the “Black Cement” Air Jordan 4 (he finished with a respectable 28 points in that contest). Despite the spectacular success of the Air Jordan 3, the Air Jordan 4 continued to dominate the markets, this time as the first pair of Michael Jordan’s sneakers to be released globally. They were among the priciest basketball sneakers on the market when they were on sale for $110, $10 more than the previous model. These sneakers went on to become one of the most recognizable pairs in the series despite their increased price and initially negative reviews. Initially, they were offered in four distinct colorways, among which was the fan-favorite Fire Red which continues to inspire sneaker art today.
Coming to the design of the Air Jordan 4 Fire Red Wolf Grey, the uppers start off with Wolf Grey leather on the toes. Toe boxes, on the other hand, are white tumbled leather and extend over to the sides and all the way to the rears of the sneaker. Moving up, white netted panels appear on the throats with white backgrounds, cornered by grey leather eye stays and 4 metallic red eyelet panels.
Moving up, a pair of white leather tongues are contrasted by red Jump-Man logos that embellish the shoe’s white tongue tags and match the tongue liners. Sock liners are also Fire Red and lead down into red interiors, likely with white or red inserts with more Jordan branding. Heel pieces also wear the titular hue and likely feature additional Jordan branding. Coming to the sides, netted paneling also appears on the side panels, overlain by red leather triangular heel pieces. Lastly, white midsoles and Wolf Grey outsoles finish off the design.
