Tinker Hatfield built upon the popularity of the III with the even higher-tech appearance of the Air Jordan IV. It shared the same cut, midsole shape and the Nike Air logo on the heel, but several notable features stepped up the wow-factor. A script, "Flight" moniker was added below the Jumpman logo on the tongue, and plastic mesh covered the midfoot area and aided in weight reduction and breathability. The plastic, triangular strap and lace holders also improved performance by offering a more locked down fit. MJ averaged 32.5 points that season, and set the league on fire while wearing the IVs. After being immortalized in movies, posters, shirts and on the feet of countless fans, it is safe to say that the IV goes down in history as an Air Jordan for the ages. -Zac, Sole Collector Magazine
