Attend JD Sports for a Lesson in the Air Jordan 4 ‘University Blue’
Release: 28 April 2021

The Air Jordan 4 has been the template for some of Jordan Brand’s most significant and impactful colourways. While the upcoming ‘University Blue’ edition may look like a perfectly pretty powdery suede remix, there’s more to it than meets the eye.

‘University Blue’ has been quite a persistent colour story in recent months for Jordan Brand, and with good reason. The legend of the OG Chicago Bulls livery of white, black and red has been ingrained into the wider consciousness for over 35 years via retro reissues and contemporary homages. Now, it’s time to expand the mythology into MJ’s pre-Bulls era. And this is where the Air Jordan 4 ‘University Blue’ comes in.

Three decades on from its debut, the AJ4 is still a fan-favourite, providing an effective conduit for exciting colours that still express some OG flavours. Suede uppers are a rebellious shift from catalogue specs, but this deviation is well received in its ‘University Blue’ finish. The classic cement midsole inserts are an example of how to ‘do the right thing’ – in fact, the whole base has been faithfully lifted from the ‘White Cement’ OG. As are the upper lace ‘wings’ and heel tab that are finished in the same speckle.

Perhaps the best part of the Air Jordan 4 ‘University Blue’ release is that it will be available for the entire family.
