The Air Jordan IV was originally released in 1989, and quickly got noticed on court when His Airness wore them for one of his then best years on record. They also saw mass stardom on screen when the "Do the Right Thing" character Mookie, played by Spike Lee, exclaims outrage after his pristine Air Jordan IVs are scuffed by a bicycle tire. They first returned as a retro style in 1999, and have seen several retro releases since then, with each design sticking closely to its original predecessor.
