Air Jordan 4 Military Blue Returning in June 2012

The Jordan Retro 4 Military Blue has been on the Holy Grail list of many collectors over the years. The Air Jordan IV was, and is still, a very popular model of the Air Jordans. Though Michael Jordan never wore the Military Blue Jordan IV on the court, they are on of the most sought after pairs of Jordans ever. Since the Military Blue Air Jordan IV’s have not been released since the summer of 1989, finding a pair is next to impossible and you can only imagine how hard it is to find a deadstock pair.

It seems like every other month there were posts on sneakerhead message boards talking about the rumors of the second coming of the Jordan 4 Military. Nike gave Jordan collectors a good taste of the Air Jordan 4′s in 1999 when they brought back the shoes 10 years after their initial release. Many were hoping to see the Military Blues then, but unfortunately for many that did not happen. Now, 17 years after the initial release of the Jordan 4 Military Blue’s, they will be coming back.

If you thought 2011 was a great year for sneaker collectors and sneakerheads, wait until you hear what’s in store for 2012. With the Order Jordan 4 Military already confirmed as an early February release, it comes as no surprise that Jordan Brand will continue to release Air Jordan 4 colorways later in 2012. We have just confirmed through sources at NT that the Air Jordan 4 Military Blue/White will also be returning next year. This is great news as it has been nearly five years since we last saw this colorway hit shelves.

The long anticipated re-release of the Air Jordan 12 Obsidian is less than a month away. Originally debuted in February of 1997, this will be the first time that Jordan Brand has retroed this coveted colorway. Obsidian blue and white leather cover the majority of the upper, with hints of french blue appearing on the inner liner, branding and tongue. Returning to retailers tomorrow for the first time since its original 1997 release is the Air Jordan 12 “Obsidian”.

Come July the Jordan 6 Olympic 2012 will make a return and in Sneaker Files fashion, we show you an early yet detailed look at whats to come.The Olympic Jordan 6 originally released in 2000 for the Sydney Olympic Games, but the 2012 Olympic Air Jordan VI retro doesn’t see much change except for the blue tint to the sole and outsole. For those that don’t know, Jordan Brand started using a blue tint to their models with a translucent sole, with many believing to combat yellowing.Using tumbled leather on the uppers, elastic perforated tongue, and transparent sole. The official colorway for the 2012 Air Jordan 6 Olympic is White/Midnight Navy-Varsity Red.
