Sneakers Release – Air Jordan 4 Retro “Black Cat” Black/Black-Light Graphite Colorway

Jan 20, 2020

The Air Jordan 4 celebrated it’s 30 year anniversary in 2019, during which time the fourth signature shoe in Michael Jordan’s collection has seen three original colorways and more than 25 retro releases.

On January 22, the Air Jordan 4 is back in it’s “Black Cat” colorway, originally released in 2006. The black and light graphite-colored basketball shoe will launch online and in stores at Hibbett | City Gear in men’s, grade school kids’, preschool kids’ and toddler kids‘ sizes.

This comeback colorway gets its name from His Airness’ childhood nickname “Black Cat,” which described the basketball legend’s stealthy, feline-like moves on the court. In fact, Michael Jordan‘s ability to soar through the air and then land softly in such a way that conserved energy inspired Tinker Hatfield’s sleek, lean and powerful Air Jordan 13 design in 1997.

The “Black Cat” Jordan 4 Retro perpetuates MJ’s panther-like persona with its black-as-night nubuck leather upper that’s peppered with subtle touches of grey by way of the Jumpman logos on the outside of each shoe’s tongue and the shoes’ clean grey interior lining.

The 2020 rendition of this beloved Jordan colorway also features semi-metallic graphite eyestays and netted side panels, all-black Jumpman logos on the heels and a single white Jumpman logo on the shoes’ blacked-out outsoles.

The Air Jordan 4 colorway is one of the most iconic in the Jordan collection. Bring this standout sneaker into the spotlight once again when you buy a pair for yourself and your favorite junior sneakerheads and sneakeristas on January 22 at Hibbett | City Gear.
