Long before its first reissue in 2006, the Air Jordan IV “Military Blue” was often the subject of heated discussion by Jordan fanatics clamoring for a retro release. However, a strange thing happened when the shoes eventually landed on store shelves. More specifically, it was what didn’t happen that raised eyebrows, as the shoes remained on the shelves. Sure, there were sellouts in some parts of the country, but in others, the kicks were rumored to have made it to the clearance rack. The lesson here is it’s sometimes difficult to gauge how well a particular pair of sneakers will sell, even if they’re the vaunted Jordan IVs. Nonetheless, for those who’ve been waiting for the Military Blues to resurface — or who’ve worn their 2006 pairs into the ground — we suggest getting to the stores early when they release on June 9th. (Just in case, especially since the sneaker buying landscape has changed quite a bit in the last six years.) For those still on the fence, check out the official images supplied by Jordan Brand below.
