Jordans 2017, The Air Jordan 4 Cavs Originally thought to be a Knicks-inspired release when first leaked, this Air Jordan 4 actually brought us back to the times Michael Jordan sent the Cavs home early during the NBA Playoffs. Some of the two most vivid moments is the classic Game 5 when Michael Jordan hit the free-throw jumper over Craig Ehlo in 1989, followed by his signatures fadeaway in 1993. Inspired by the shoe MJ wore in '89, the Air Jordan 4 received a full Cavs' makeover dressed in a Black, Safety Orange and Game Royal color scheme. Inspired by the classic shot Michael Jordan made over the Cleveland Cavalier Craig Ehlo in the NBA Playoffs, Jordan Brand remakes that moment by creating the Air Jordan 4 Cavs. The sneaker features a black suede upper with hints of an orange blaze on the sole, tongue and side lace eyelets. A secondary color of old royal touch the lining, midsole, netting and heel tab.
Many New Jordans 2016 colorways are inspired countless successes made by Michael Jordan on the court. The Air Jordan 4 Cavs was inspired by Jordan's impressive game winning basket he made over Cleveland Cavalier Craig Ehlo's head during the 1989 NBA Playoffs. The sneaker is predominantly black and features colors Game Royal and Safety Orange. "The Shot" ranks right up there with "White Cement", "Elephant print" and "championship ring" when it comes to two-word phrases associated with Michael and his Air Jordans. The image of MJ driving hard to his left off the inbound, leaping at the top of the key and hanging there as he noosed Craig Ehlo and the Cleveland fans is one that's been burned into our collective consciousness, and along with it, the immortal legend of the Air Jordan IV. Queens native, Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent, was invited to throw the ceremonial first pitch yesterday at Citi Field. Jackson did so in fashion as he wore the "Cavs" Air Jordan 4 to compliment the "Home" New York Mets jersey.
New Air Jordan Shoes, In 1989, Michael Jordan hit a buzzer beater shot over Craig Ehlo to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 101-100. This shot lead the Bulls past the Cavs in the Playoffs, and is Jordan's first playoff buzzer beater that won the game. Easily mistaken for a New York Knicks inspired look we'd see Spike Lee rocking courtside throughout the playoffs, the Air Jordan 4 Retro is hit with a combination of black, orange and blue. Black nubuck builds the upper on these, while orange blaze hits the eyelets, tongue Jumpman and outsole sitting down below. Old royal completes the Cavaliers-inspiration, handling the midsole, wings and liner. Inspired by "the shot" MJ hit against the Cavs back in '89, these IV’s offer a unique colorway. The combination of blue and orange really makes the shoe pop, and you could probably slide by saying that it's a Knicks colorway if you're from the city. These J's are bound to sell out anywhere, though we doubt Craig Ehlo will be copping a pair.
