Jordan 4 Fire Red Drops After Black Friday 2020 [is it worth the wait?]

By October 29, 2020Jordan

JORDAN 4 FIRE RED AIO FEATWe helped you cop the Jordan 5 Fire Red and now we’re setting you up for the Jordan 4 Fire Red. Which, in case you haven’t heard, is dropping ONE day after Black Friday this year. As the only Air Jordan (yet!) to dodge the craziest retail purge of the year, you’re bound to ask yourself: why the Jordan 4 model and Fire Red colorway? Well, considering that it’s the fourth Jordan 4 Fire Red pair to drop in 35 years. AND it’s totally fire may answer your question. And no, there will NOT be a discount price on this rare Jordan sight. Your goal here is to cop these kicks at retail on the biggest buying and selling weekend of the year. Do that and we’ll manage your expectations later.

So, if it’s the fourth Jordan 4 Fire Red in history and the exact Retro of the 1989 OG pair, why isn’t it as hyped? StockX recorded over 50 sold pairs yesterday and today combined, all under $300. It seems that a whole bunch of kicks leaked on October 26th. Because that was the day when their resale value plummeted from $500 down to $350. And subsequently after that to an average $285. Comparing this upcoming pair to the Jordan 5 Fire Red that dropped about 6 months ago, there’s only a $40 difference in their values on the aftermarket. Looks like the reveal of the Trophy Room Air Jordan 1 Chicago dropping on 11/11 has stolen the spotlight. Without the intention of sharing it with November Jordans.

The Curious Case of Fire Red

Before we get to what’s dropping where this year, what do you know about the Jordan 4 Fire Red? Most of you might think that the Fire Red colorway is loyal to the Jordan 5 model. As a matter of fact, the Jordan 4 released its Fire Red OG pair in 1989. That’s one year before the Jordan 5 Fire Red even popped out! How’s that for turning your perspective around? 

Seventeen years later after the 1989 OG, the Mars Blackmon pair dropped in 2006 for $115. With Spike Lee’s famous cartoon face on the sneaker’s side heel, it’s currently valued at $300 on average. Which is pretty decent considering that it cost less than the Jordan 4 we’re here for and dropped 14 years ago. The third Jordan 4 Fire Red pair dropped 6 years after Blackmon in 2012 as a regular Retro with no strings attached. Also reselling for $300. It ain’t fire but at least we know the fire line’s potential.

Expect the fourth Retro to drop on Black Friday 2020 and resell for the same value as its threefold fam.
