A stat that was hard to ignore did the rounds on Instagram recently. We were told that in 1984, Nike aimed to make $3 million over four years with Jordan Brand. In 2022, Jordan Brand generates $3 million every five hours.

That’s a meteoric rise and a stat that really makes an impact. But, when you think about the amount of popular Jordan models available, it begins to make more sense. It got us thinking about which Jordan models are the most popular and, after fervent discussion, we decided that the Nike Jordan 4 deserved much more praise than it gets.

Of course, the Nike Jordan 4 is one of the major players of the franchise but can it really be said to rival the heights of the Jordan 1 or Jordan 3? Probably not, but by no fault of its own. Ask us, and we’ll tell you that the Jordan 4 is, objectively, one of the best-looking Jumpman silhouettes available in 2022. To prove it, we’ve collated 10 of the best Nike Jordan 4 releases to cop at StockX today.

Military Black is by no means a head-turner, but it's a really nice place to begin our journey into the world of the Jordan 4. Finished in simple white, black, and grey, this is less an attention-grab and more a celebration of the Jordan 4 design itself.

Canyon Purple

On the other end of the spectrum, Canyon Purple makes a splash. The purple and green color palette definitely calls for attention but not because it's bold and brash, simply because it's perfectly matched. Combine the harmonious palette with an upper built from beautiful hairy suede, and you're onto a winner.

Having previously collaborated on the Jordan 1, 5, and 6 silhouettes in the past, it was high time in October 2020 that the Nike Jordan 4 got some love, too. Bordeaux hits to the midsole, eyelets, and heel complement a simple white & black backdrop.

In the Jordan archive, some colorways will always hold more weight than others. Black Cement is one of them.

Not only is Black Cement a part of sneaker history, but it's also a really versatile colorway for styling.

While some Jordan silhouettes can err on the side of boring when they're given understated colorways, the Jordan 4 and its detailed uppers don't risk that. Take this minimal pair fitted with black canvas uppers. They're hard-wearing and easy to style, perfectly framing the mesh inserts and complex lacing system of the design.

University Blue

August 2020 saw the release of the UNION collaboration which rightfully caused a stir in the sneaker world.
