The return of "Nike Air" branding has taken the popularity of the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 3 to new heights. While it's been fairly regular on the 1 for the past two years, it was a one-off on the Air Jordan 3 '88, which released in February 2013 as a tribute to Michael Jordan's famous free-throw line dunk. It's remained absent from several other classic Jordan models, but rumors suggest that will change next year.

The Air Jordan 4 Retro '89, complete with Nike Air branding, will release on Feb. 13 in 2016. This will mark the first 'Nike Air' branded Air Jordan 4 release since 1999, when then it's been replaced by the Jumpman.
