Hold on to your laces, sneakerheads. It appears the Jordan Brand series might be reviving another classic: the Air Jordan 4 "Bred" sneakers.
The Air Jordan 4 is rumored to return in the famed Bred scheme – the iconic (and somewhat infamous) black and red colorway which was rumored to be banned by the NBA for dress code violation (hence, the "Banned" Air Jordan 1s).
According to a few whispers, the Air Jordan 4 "Bred" is expected to return as part of the ongoing "Reimagined" series, which recently brought back other icons like the Chicago 1s and the White Cement 3s.
There's no official or leaked images of the Air Jordan 4 "Bred" Reimagined, but the shoe will come with a leather upper versus its nubuck build, per rumors. It's also safe to assume the AJ4s will maintain the line's aged aesthetic with details like deliberate cracking and intentionally-yellowed soles (hopefully, sans the mold).
And one can only hope that the AJ4s will arrive with the OG "Nike Air" detailing on the heel, as seen on the initial 1989 and 2019 pairs.
Apparently, we won't see the Air Jordan 4 "Bred" Reimagined till March 2024. So, we'e got a little ways till these (potentially) hit the SNKRS app.
At the same time, it's really all up in the air. A couple of weeks back, the Air Jordan 3 "White Cement" Reimagined said surprise, randomly dropping on SNKRS.
My advice: Sit tight and stay ten fingers down because, if it's anything like the 3s, the AJ4 "Bred" could come at any moment.
