Born from the mind of Tinker Hatfield, the Air Jordan IV was built for His Airness’ high-speed game. Now, nearly three decades after its on-court arrival, the Air Jordan IV is presented in a color combo commemorating the Jordan Motorsports team. The white, black and sport royal aesthetic embodies the spirit and high speed competition that number 23’s style helped bring to the raceway.

Racing To Release

Design Story

When Michael Jordan isn’t busy being a major NBA legend, sneaker creator or multi-millionaire, he shares a definitive love for motorsports. In 2004, his passion for the sport allowed him to link up with Pete Mauhar, an experienced racing manager, to develop a team for the Jordan Brand. Mauhar thought the idea of Jordan being into racing was a joke. It wasn’t a joke. They were able to put together a team right before the first Daytona race, sourcing around for equipment, riders and staff.

This later led to Jordan calling up Mark Smith, Senior Creative Director of Innovation at Nike, to design some gear for the team. Smith, surprising, knew nothing about the team Jordan was creating. But he was able to create suits, the looks of the bikes and even their sneakers—all in 3 weeks.

In 2006, Smith unveiled a pair of Jordan IV’s in black, white and royal blue colorway that became one of the most sought after Jordan releases. Since Jordan couldn’t be a professional rider himself, he attached it to his name. Clever, MJ.
