Jordan 4 Cool Grey
The Jordan 4 is one of the most popular basketball shoes of all time. It was the first Jordan with a global release by Nike and all around the world fans clamored for the shoe. In the Spike Lee movie “Do The Right Thing” key conflict in the plot even revolved around the shoes.
The shoes were designed by Tinker Hatfield and originally released in the classic White / Fire Red or Black / Cement Gray colorways. Since the shoes were so popular with kids, Nike has released dozens of new colorways over the years and a combination of fashion and nostalgia have consistently driven strong sales.
A key component of the Jordan 4 is the breathable mesh in the tongue and quarters. The mesh panel on the side would stay as an influential component of the Jordan 5. This webbed look contrasted strongly with the solid sides of the Jordan 3. The addition of flex cuts to the sole of the shoe and an angled lace lock also contributed to an overall sportier look than its predecessor. These different components also made for easy contrasting colorways like the iconic White / Fire Red, which used a lot of black as a third color in the lace lock and back tab for added contrast.
Cool Grey Colorway
Since the Jordan 4 commonly presented a strongly contrasting colorway, there is a lot of appeal in the solid colorway presentation of the Jordan 4 Cool Grey. This shoe looks different from the other Jordan 4s on your shelf. The Cool Grey colorway of the Jordan 4 first appeared in 2004 but it was the rerelease of the colorway in 2019 that gives deadstock investors opportunity. The 2019 Cool Grey / Chrome – Dark Charcoal is a Jordan 4 that has a strong, solid color design with the grey covering everything down to a sharp white and black sole. The shoe sports a Nike Air window on the bottom and a Jumpman logo on the heel. These shoes have strong universal appeal and a solid colorway that can ride the waves of fashion. There should be strong demand for this shoe for some time.
