t.g.i.J. (thank goodness it's Jordan)

Sneaker: Nike Air Jordan IV - cool grey|chrome-dk charc-v mz - "cool grey IV's"














We all know who Michael Jordan is, and we all know (I think) that he has had his own line of shoes for the past 20 or so years. Out of all 21 different models of Air Jordans what were released, these are probably my favorite version of all time. More on that when I wear the other colorways I own of the shoe (can't give it all away now). In general, the cool grey colorway (and wheat for that matter) was a huge hit in the sneaker world in the first half of this decade. Anything cool grey was sought after. And so were these.

On release day, I was running around like a mad man in downtown SF looking for a pair. I think I went into 4 stores early that morning (niketown SF, footlocker, champs, first step) looking for these before I walked into copeland's sports all distraught because I couldn't find them in my size. Thank god for copeland's (maybe I should rename my post that).

Hey, you work with a college friend of mine, Grace. She referred me to your site and it's off to a great start. My fav J's of all time are also the IV's! They are absolutely beautiful. I esp. love the black cements.

I also wanted to post a comment on your AM 90 Infrared but there's no link to post, so anyway, I LOVE those as well. I had the originals back when I was in elementary but b/c my mom made us take our shoes of before entering the house, I left 'em outside and someone stole 'em! I went to school the next day with some beaters. Anyway, b/c the re-release didn't come in kids/women's sizes I had to customize a pair w/ those exact colors on nikeid.com. Look forward to seeing the rest of your collection.

thanks cynthia. black red IV's are my all time favorite. i wish i got more of 'em when they re-released back in 99. sucks that someone stole your pair of 90's way back when. at least you got yourself a new pair.
