The Nike Air Jordan 4 is enjoying yet another moment, riding the wave of recent, and much-hyped, collabs. The most notable arriving in the form of the Union x Air Jordan 4, which released in "Guava" and "Off Noir" colorways, and, of course, the "Sail" Off-White™ x Air Jordan that is now going for thousands at resale. Add that to The Last Dance still being watched and rewatched, and you've got some serious spotlight.

First hitting the court during an NBA All-Star Game in 1989, the AJ4 has long been a lauded member of the Jordan silhouette family. At the '89 NBA Playoffs, the Chicago Bulls were one point down to the Cleveland Cavaliers with just three seconds left of the game. Michael Jordan, wearing the "Black Cement" Air Jordan 4s, then hit "The Shot" and won the playoff series.

With Tinker Hatfield facing the difficult task of designing a follow-up to the iconic Air Jordan 3, Nike's approach was to make only subtle aesthetic changes to its already hugely-popular sneaker, betting big on leaving the AJ3's most important design features in place. It worked wonders.

Today, we're celebrating an icon, looking past the hyped collabs of recent months, and selecting our very favorite Nike Air Jordan 4 sneakers. You can shop all of them at Stadium Goods.
