The Air Jordan IV made its initial debut in 1989 and was instantly praised for its unique design. The Tinker Hatfield creation features a 3/4 (or mid) cut similar to the Air Jordan III, large "Flight" logo on the tongue, plastic lace hole accents, and a visible Air-Sole unit. The 2012 edition utilizes a full-suede upper in black. The "Bred" nickname is a combination of black and red, the two dominating shades on the classic sneaker. Aside from the heel Jumpman branding, everything else remains true to the original with cement grey and fire red accenting throughout.
