Air Jordan 4 Military Blue 2006 History

Many sneaker enthusiasts were mad when images of the “Military Blue” Air Jordan 4 first surfaced. Jordan Brand decided to switch the look up slightly on the shoes. Instead of using Off-White like the original pair, the 2006 retro featured White. The anger soon subsided as more images leaked, and people just wanted a chance to purchase the “Military Blue 4.

Dressed in a White, Military Blue, and Neutral Grey color scheme. Aside from the White leather upper, the shoes resembled the classic “Military Blue.” Next, Neutral Grey wraps the toe box. Another drawback for OG fans is the Jumpman on the heel. Many wanted the original “Nike Air,” but the 2006 and other models lacked the original branding around the time. Military Blue allows this pair to stand out and is placed on the tongue logo, liner, eyelets, behind the mesh netting, heel tabs, and upper part of the midsole. Other details include an “Air Jordan” label on the inside of the tongue, a visible Air unit, and a White Jumpman on the rubber outsole.

Since the “Military Blue” Jordan 4 was released in 2006, they are no longer wearable. The Air unit is fogged and will crack, while the midsole will crumble. On some pairs, the wings have also broken off. You could always do a sole swap, but the wings are more difficult to repair.
