Back with another Daily Jordan, and today we have the Air Jordan 4 “Classic Green” to reminisce over. This stripped-down White/Chrome-Classic Green leather look was part of the second wave of Air Jordan 4s to hit after the initial 1999 original and “Retro+” colorways, and it was quite a departure from anything we’d seen before that time. Sneaker forums expressed confusion at first about why Jordan Brand would even make an all-white shoe with barely any color – let alone green. However, when it released on July 24, 2004, it basically sold out in all of the high traffic sizes. Yep, typical reversal of public sneaker consensus at work.
But there is something about the no nonsense white upper and scant accenting than gives this AJ4 an Air Force 1 type versatility. So versatile that there aren’t many of these floating around for sale now, whatever the condition. As you can see in the photos, age-related yellowing is an unavoidable factor here. But if you don’t find your size in the reseller marketplace, maybe with Jordan Brand’s recent penchant for bringing back non-OG colorway retros, the Classic Greens might have new life in the near future.
