Tinker Hatfield produced hit after hit; after the Jordan 3 marked its place in the analogs of Air Jordan history, he wasted no time in releasing the next showstopper for the brand. The Air Jordan 4 released in 1989 cemented Hatfield as a legend within the world of sneakers and showed the world a more assertive design inspired by the winning mentality of the company’s namesake.
The Retro 4’s latest release, “Crimson,” pulls from a colorway, “Thunder,” that originally debuted back in 2006. The red and black color combo feels decidedly Jordan and makes for a bold addition to anyone's collection.
It’s always exciting to see something from the past return, especially when every feature that made it a classic is still intact. Suede nubuck upper, visible air unit, the mesh quarter panel, and tongue bottom are all back and better than ever.
