In 1989 came Michael Jordan's fourth signature shoe with the Air Jordan IV.  Tinker Hatfield's follow up to the Air Jordan III did not disappoint as the Air Jordan IV would become another all-time favorite of many Air Jordan fans.  Michael played in the "Fire Red" colorway for much of 1989 before switching to the Black/Red's for the Playoffs.  Tomorrow brings us the retro release of the shoe in its truest to orginal form without any lasered design or Mars Blackmon face on the heel. (Now if only we could get better quality and "Nike Air" on the heel, but that's another story.) 

With their return, we will take a look back at Michael wearing them on the court.  Check out a few images of the GOAT wearing the original Air Jordan IV "Fire Red" below and let us know if you'll be picking up a retro pair this weekend.
