Introducing the Jordan Fly ’89

Introducing the Jordan Fly ’89

 

Jordan dipped into the archives and returned with the Jordan Fly ’89, a comfortable casual kick that’s inspired by one of Michael Jordan’s most iconic basketball shoes. When the Air Jordan 4 first released in 1989, it was the perfect mix of on-court performance and off-court style. Nearly 30 years later, the shoe is still a fan favorite.

To honor such a historic sneaker, Jordan has created the Jordan Fly ’89, which features the AJ 4’s unique wing lacing details and heel tab for a retro-inspired look. Jordan gave the shoe a sock-like upper and Lunarlon midsole cushioning to provide comfort with every step you take.

A retro look with modern comfort? That’s a slam dunk. The Jordan Fly ’89 is available 5/26 in multiple colorways. Stay tuned to Eastbay’s social channels for more information on upcoming releases.

On Black Friday, the Air Jordan 4 will be returning in the original Black/Cement Grey-Fire Red colorway. While there’s still some waiting to be done for the kicks, you can get an early jump on matching Jordan Retro 4 gear today.

One of the available accessories is the Jordan Retro 4 OG Twist Jacket, which pays homage to the classic using a nylon/polyester ripstop shell with twill tape gathering at center chest and back faithful to the OG design from 1989. Warp knit mesh lining uses Dri-FIT construction to keep you fresh. Self fabric covered elastic waistbands and cuffs enhance the fit. The official Air Jordan 4 patch of Jumpman Over Flight appears on the left side of the chest.

To match the upcoming release, and perhaps a few of the other colorways, the Retro 4 OG Twist Jacket is available in black with red accents and a red style with black accents. Pick up both of these Jordan jackets here today.

Tomorrow marks the official return of an all-time Jordan Brand classic – the “Military Blue” Air Jordan Retro 4. Originally released in 1989, the “Military Blue” 4 wasn’t one of Michael Jordan’s on-court models, but still managed to gain immense popularity over the years as one of the standout colorways in the entire line. The shoe was last re-released in 2006 and this year’s version is expected to be one of the hottest releases of 2012.

To celebrate the return of the “Military Blue” Jordan shoes, the brand has released several pieces of matching apparel, including a full lineup of t-shirts and a pair of shorts. The Legacy Tee is a direct nod to the model number, while the Military Blues and Prepare for Takeoff Tees uniquely represent the iconic sneakers. Jordan Retro 4 Caged Up Shorts are lightweight and promise to keep you stylish and comfortable.

Head over to Eastbay to pick up your Jordan Retro Clothing and look out for the “Military Blue” Air Jordan Retro 4 shoes tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. EST.

Twenty-three years ago, Michael Jordan created one of the truly iconic NBA Playoff moments when he hit “The Shot” against the Cleveland Cavaliers in 1989. Underdogs in the series, the Chicago Bulls pushed Cleveland to a fifth and decisive game at Richfield Coliseum, where MJ sealed the deal with a line drive jumper over Craig Ehlo above the free throw line as time expired. This weekend, the Jordan Brand will celebrate the 23rd Anniversary of Michael’s game-winner by releasing a Cavs-inspired colorway of the Air Jordan 4.

With an all-new colorway of the classic Jordan shoes set to drop, Sole Shots marks this weekend’s release by taking a look back at some of the other Jordan 4 colorways that have released. Which pair is your favorite? Let us know in the comment section below!

After a near 13-year hiatus, the “Cement” Air Jordan IV will be making its long-awaited return tonight. Worn by Michael Jordan during his historic 1988-1989 season, the Tinker Hatfield designed shoes are characterized by a speckled cement print on the lace support panels, heel tab and midsole. Other key features include the iconic ‘Flight’ script logo, Air unit and plastic-coasted mesh panels that marked a key point in weight-reducing technology.

Though the Jordan signature line had become popular outside of the United States in previous years, the Air Jordan IV was the first model in the series to actually be marketed globally. The shoe was also famously spotted in Spike’s Lee’s classic film, “Do the Right Thing,” in which a character by the name of ‘Buggin Out’ freaked out when a cyclist scuffed is new sneakers. For a lot of collectors, the movie marked the start of common toothbrush sneaker cleaning.

With this classic due back tonight, Sole Shots celebrates its all-time status with a Cement-themed post. Most of the photos feature the 1999 retro, which is generally regarded as one of the shoes that shaped sneaker culture as we know it today. Check out the lineup and make sure you stop by Eastbay tonight to pick up your new Jordan shoes.
