Sure to be one of the hottest releases during the Hottest Month Ever, the Jordan Retro IV Cement will release this Saturday, February 18. The Retro 4 in this style hasn’t been released since 1999 when the shoe was retro-ed for the first time. Not much is different from that release with the exception of the Jordan Jupman on the heel (in 1999 the heel still had a Nike Air logo). Originally released in 1989, the Air Jordan IV is one of the most popular Jordans of all time and began a string of unbelievable success for Jordan brand retro-ing shoes in the late 90s that continues to this day. Unlike the three signature shoes before it, the Jordan IV was the first to feature a strap – making ankle turns nearly impossible. The shoe’s popularity was boosted during the 1988-1989 season when Michael Jordan led the league in scoring for the third time in a row and when, in the 1989 playoffs, he hit “The Shot” against Cleveland in Game 5 of the first round.
The Jordan Retro IV white/black/cement will have a midnight release online at Footlocker.com. We will provide a countdown link once it becomes available. The only Foot Locker store with a midnight release at this time is the Mall at Stonecrest in Lithonia, Georgia. We will update this post if there are any changes or updates regarding midnight releases. The Retro IV has a retail price of $160 and will also be released in kids sizes.
