Everything You Need to Know About the Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” Re-Release

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the Air Jordan 4, and to celebrate this massive milestone, Jordan Brand is bringing back some of the most legendary colourways of all-time, including the Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” from 1989. Rumours of this re-release have been swirling around the sneaker game for months now, so if you want a pair in your collection, you need to make sure that all the info you have is legit. That’s why we’ve written this piece on everything that you need to know about the big retro.

The “Military Blue” was one of the four inaugural colourways that introduced the silhouette to the world back in the late ’80s. While it’s true that this pair did make a comeback in 2012, the 2024 iterations aims to offer a faithful recreation of the original specifications, ensuring that you receive a piece of history with modern-day craftsmanship.

Working on top of a premium “Off-White” leather base, this AJ4 is overlaid by panels and panels of “Neutral Grey” suede across the toebox. Bold “Military Blue” accents hit the lateral and medial sidewalls as well as the heel. Speaking of which, unlike the ’12 edition, this year’s pair will bring back the OG “Nike Air” branding that’s extremely sought-after. All of this then rests on top of a crisp Air midsole that’s as comfortable as it gets.

If you want the Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” in your collection this season, then you need to listen up. Set to drop on May 4th, it’ll be available via Nike, the SNKRS app, and select stockists across the globe. These are going to sell out fast, so be sure to keep it locked at Captain Creps for your best chance to secure your size!
