Air Jordan 4 | History and Resale

Nike’s legendary designer Tinker Hatfield had the lofty task of outdoing himself and when the Air Jordan 4.

This task was particularly difficult as outdoing the Air Jordan 3 would be highly challenging. Michael Jordan himself smiled when he saw the Air Jordan 3 and approved of the design after only a 20-minute interview with Hatfield.

Thankfully, Hatfield succeeded and created the iconic Air Jordan 4 in 1989. Jordan Brand would, later on, release a plethora of colorways, most of which were very popular and profitable.

After a slight slow-down for a few years, it appears Jordan Brand is giving the Air Jordan 4 more attention by releasing hyped colorways like the Air Jordan 4 University Blue and Lightning, among others.

Most colorways have been selling out and yield decent profits for resellers. To estimate resale for the Air Jordan 4 Thunder Red, let’s head on over to StockX.

This Air Jordan 4 was released as a retro of 2006’s “Thunder” colorway which was so popular that Nike had to bring it back.

Uppers feature a dark shade with contrasting yellow hits. Mesh panels feature vibrant yellow backgrounds on the side panels and the throats while eyelet panels also indulge in the energetic hue.

Black tongues, yellow midsoles, and black outsoles complete the look.

On StockX, the average selling price is around $550 which is a gross profit of almost $400! The Air Jordan 4 Thunder Red will likely have a lower resale value since it doesn’t have as much of an “OG” factor.

This Air Jordan 4 takes on color blocking similar to the aforementioned Lighting colorway but swaps out the yellow for blazing red hues.

A nubuck leather upper predominantly wraps the sneaker, appearing on the toes, mudguards, and heel overlays. Mesh panels appear on the throats and side panels with bright red backgrounds that complement the matching plastic eyelet panels.

The throats are wrapped up in black laces and lead up to matching black tongues with text that reads “Flight” along with white Jump-man logos.

A similar Jump-Man is also embossed onto the heel tabs while black/red midsoles and black outsoles with another Jump-Man finishes off the design.
