The Air Jordan 4 “Alternate ’89” Inspired by Michael Jordan unveiling exclusive colored-up performance Air Jordans on the hardwood. As his recognizable shoes sparked a worldwide craze, Jordan Brand decided to design Player Exclusives those highly prized by athletes and collectors alike. Essentially noted as a tribute to player exclusive models, the sneaker sports the Chicago Bulls’ early “Home” colors of Red/White. This classic palette reflects what MJ would have worn back then. Comprised of premium tumbled and smooth leather for its composition overall, the sneaker is detailed with its respective theme on the pull tabs. Finishing touches include contrasting Black Jumpman branding on the tongue and rear portion.
Since his game-winning shot that brought championship glory to North Carolina, Michael Jordan has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness. He took the court in 1985 wearing the original Air Jordan I, simultaneously breaking league rules and his opponents’ will while capturing the imagination of fans worldwide.
