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!

Air Jordan Anniversary Editions

Air Jordan Anniversary Editions

Although Michael Jordan already had a couple Air Jordan models before the Air Jordan 3 and the Air Jordan 4, for many sneakerheads, these were the shoes that revolutionized sneakers. Sure, Michael had already been fined for his “outrageous” Air Jordan 1 models, then followed that up by displaying the Air Jordan 2 on the biggest stage possible, the 1987 Slam Dunk Contest. However, the Air Jordan 3 model launched the iconic Jumpman logo as well as introduced one of the most memorable and popular print patterns to ever grace a sneaker, elephant print. The minimalistic design of the Air Jordan 3 kept it very clean, which accentuated the elephant print and new Jumpman logo even more. Not to mention, the Air Jordan 3 was the first to receive a visible Air unit, which back in the day was nothing less than mesmerizing.

Following up the ground breaking Air Jordan 3 was a difficult task, but Nike seemed to handle it perfectly. The mesh detailing on the side panels of the Air Jordan 4 had never been seen before. Add to that the triangular detailing that seemed to float on the side of the shoe, while simultaneously tying the lace stays to the body of the shoe, and it seemed that the Air Jordan 4 was designed to take flight. Nike, realizing this, used the Air Jordan 4 to launch the scripted Flight logo below the Jumpman on the tongue, which once again become an unforgettable icon in the sneaker world. Unlike its predecessor, the Air Jordan 4 was a bold and groundbreaking design due to its use of materials that created a visually stunning sneaker with an array of elements, that essentially defined the term neck-breaking.

This Saturday, March 27th, the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 4 will return again, this time as part of the 25th Anniversary Collection for Jordan Brand. The Silver Anniversary will be celebrated with a series of white colorways featuring silver detailing.
