4Squared On 01.04.11

I don't know why but a lot of the Air Jordan heads I know love the IV's.

Seriously, I don't get it. It’s not the best to ball in and personally, from a design perspective, it’s nowhere near its predecessor, the Air Jordan III.

If you don't know 'The Shot', then you don't know basketball. Or Michael Jordan for that matter.

I don’t know but I think it has a lot to do with 'The Shot'; who could ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever forget that oh so sublime moment when His Airness towered over Craig Ehlo to clinch the game and the series at the 1989 Playoffs?

A n y w a y s…

It's the 4th and it’s Air Jordan IV day.

My OG's are again a no-no!

There are lots of colorways to choose from, really.

I wanted to go with the classic Black Cement’s or the all-white White/Met Silver. Torn between the two, I tweeted and asked for suggestion/request as to which Air Jordan IV I should wear. There were a few suggestions and the dude who hooked me up with the Air Jordan XI Cool Grey replied, "am feelin something with laser etchings perhaps? :P"


It's a good suggestion and considering it's been ages since I've worn any of my AJ IV Laser's, I decided to wear one; I couldn't exactly remember which colorways I have with me at the moment and when I checked, I only had the Red Lasers - sample from 2005 and one I'm definitely not wearing - and the Black/Varsity Red.

I was actually looking for the White/Varsity Red pair but I couldn't find it; I know I always have a pair of the white and Black ones together :-( Anyways, since the Red Lasers are definitely out, I had no choice but to rock the Black ones.

The AJ IV Black Lasers. I prefer the white ones but I couldn't find my pair :-(

But here’s the thing; I only wore it for a bit. It was kinda squishy and I was afraid the soles are gonna die on me, and since I was gonna do a lot of walking, I decided to change.

But which pair?

That's when it hit me!

Why not wear the very pair that I wore on the first day of 2009?

That way, I could easily go back to basics and go back to a time when I was happy. Oh, and most important of all, it'd also allow me to forget 2010 like it never happened.


And voila! That is when 01.04.11 became ‘Lightning’ day!

The AJ IV Lightning


Oh, have y'all noticed how beautiful my photos are? Can you say new toy? :-)
