The Air Jordan IV is an iconic sneaker, with the Jumpman logo on the tongue with “Flight” under it, a Jumpman on the back and the plastic wings and mesh panels that lightened the shoe for Michael Jordan’s fourth signature. 28 years since its original release, the Jordan IV remains one of the favorite retro styles for Jordan fans.

This spring and summer, Jordan Brand will release four different Jordan IV colorways as part of their “Summertime Hustle” campaign. Two of the colorways set to be released are inspired by Michael Jordan’s motorsports team. Both feature Jordan Motorsports’ blue and black color scheme, with one in the classic “Mars” look, except with royal blue in the areas where red would be.

The Jordan release doesn’t offer official release dates for the new IV’s, but a look at the Foot Locker release calendar will tell you that the “Motorsport” IV’s will be available on March 25 in men’s and kid’s sizes. The “Alternate Motorsport” IV is a black shoe with blue and grey accents.

These, along with the other two “Summertime Hustle” IV releases, don’t have a scheduled date for their release readily available. Along with the pair of Jordan Motorsports-inspired IVs, Jordan will be doing a collaboration with Brooklyn-based artist KAWS for an all-grey IV with suede uppers and a glow in the dark sole.

These are a departure from the classics in that they lack the mesh panels, instead with more suede. These aren’t the first suede IV designs, even for 2017, but they are unique in the lack of mesh and the glow bottoms.

The final release is a triple-white IV called “Pure Money” and features an all-white upper, all-white sole and all-white logo-ing, with the only feature that’s not white being the silver wings for just a bit of pop and shine.

Like any all-white shoe, they’ve got a crisp, clean look and that little pop of silver gives them just enough flash to keep from being too flat, since there’s no shiny patent leathers on this shoe. Best of luck keeping these clean, but if you can, these will be a hot summer look.
