The Air Jordan 4 “Fire Red” First Look & Release Date

We know, waiting for a sneaker to drop is like waiting to open your gifts on Christmas morning. You’ve probably been checking Nike’s social media and website for a while, like checking to see if the space under the Christmas tree is filling up.

Well, you don’t need to spend any more time scrolling through sneaker forums and searching for the information you’re hoping to see.

Sneaker-heads across the world have been waiting patiently for this one. The details of one of the most anticipated releases for this year, the Air Jordan 4 OG Fire Red, is part of Jordan’s Holiday 2020 lineup.

Jordan 4 "Fire Red" Release Details

Just missing the Black Friday rush, the Air Jordan 4 OG Fire Red will drop the day after, on November 28, 2020. 

You can expect to pay $265 for a pair. And, we’ll be seeing a full family size run on release day.

The style code is DC7770-160.

Air Jordan 4 OG “Fire Red” First Look

Missing from last year’s 30th-anniversary celebration of the Air Jordan 4’s, the Air Jordan 4 Fire Red, is seeing its first re-release in OG form since its first drop in 1989.

The classic AJ sneaker is making a comeback with original details, like colour blocking and shape, true to its specifications in 1989. From original packaging to the Nike Air hangtag, it’s everything you want from an OG rerelease.

With a white, black, and fire red colourway, which has only been used two other times, the sneaker has the OG detail of the “Nike Air” logo on the heel (the original branding hasn’t been featured on the colourway since 1989). 

As white leather forms the foundation of the shoe, it has black contrasts on the midsole and along the upper, with the signature fire red accents on the sole unit, the branding, and throughout the upper too.

The release of the Fire Red means that, now, the only AJ 4 that has never been re-released in its original form is the “Military Blue”.

History Of The Shoe’s Releases

The AJ 4 was created for Micheal Jordan and featured in his 1988-1989 season. The sneaker’s first retro was in 2005, dropped as an online-exclusive Laser Air Jordan 4. In 2006, it came with a Mars Blackmon stamp on the side and in 2012 it came with a Jumpman on the heel. 

As mentioned, this year's release is the first time since its original release that it returns with the original Nike Air branding on the heel.

Other Sneakers To Look Out For

For Jordan Brand’s Holiday 2020 collection, inclusive of the AJ 4 Fire Red, they also introduced the Spiz’ike 270 Boot, the Zoom 92, and the Delta SP.

Don’t Miss The Drop

With the drop of these Air Jordan 4 OG Fire Reds being highly anticipated (to say the very least), you best be prepared to stand in line for hours before doors open. They’ll fly off of the racks (both physically and virtually) before you know it.
