One of the most iconic moments in Michael Jordan’s career came wearing the Nike Air Jordan 4 "Black Cement" in 1989. On May 7th, 1989, Michael Jordan and the Bulls were facing the Cleveland Cavaliers. With just seconds to go, MJ catches an inbound pass turns dribbles to the foul line, jumps, floats, hesitates and knocks down "The Shot" over Craig Ehlo. The photo of this shot and subsequent leaping celebration by MJ, whether from your own memory or an image on the Internet, will forever make the 1989 Black Cement Air Jordan 4 one of the most important sneakers in history. Of course, it was Tinker Hatfield’s design expertise that started the Air Jordan 4 down its legendary path. Whether its the mesh side panel, visible Air unit in the heel, plastic heel tab, lace stays, the extended length of the AJ4 tongue that mimicked Michael’s own or the scripted "Flight" under the Jumpman logo, there are seemingly countless details that nearly every sneakerhead has come to love over the years on the AJ4. The black nubuck upper, grey midsole and red details make the OG Jordan 4 "Bred" colorway one of the greatest. The Original 1989 Nike Air Jordan 4 Black Cement may have been nicknamed different things over the years but nobody would argue that it is one of the classics.
