Air Jordan 4 Columbia 1999 History

The “Columbia” Air Jordan Retro 4 debuted in the Summer of 1999. Although it was not designed after any original pair and was the first non-OG to release, the shoes are nothing less than classic and suit the model very well.

What made this pair unique was the lack of mesh panels and tongues. Instead, both areas feature leather with large perforations. This allows for breathability and a new look. Since 1999, only three pairs of the Air Jordan 4 have this look.

Dubbed “Columbia Blue,” this Air Jordan 4 features a combination of White, Columbia Blue, and Midnight Navy. It utilizes White leather across the upper with Midnight Navy across the midsole, liner, eyelets, and the inside of the tongues. The shoes also mark the first to feature a Jumpman on the heel instead of Nike Air. Columbia Blue accents, along with the visible Air unit and a White sole completes the design. When released, it came with a Silver box.

Today, the shoes are no longer wearable. Most of the soles have crumbled away, and the Jumpman on the heel has deteriorated and discolored. To make them wearable, you must swap the sole and heel tabs.
