16 Years Ago Today The Air Jordan 4 Released For $100
Ah, those were the days huh? 16 years seems like ages ago, but not really. On May 5th, 1999 the Air Jordan 4 "Black Cement" retro'd and retailed for $99.99.
Compared to $190 today, the price of '99 Bred 4's sounds like chump change. We'll never see the prices be that low again or the experience the return of that beautiful shape, unfortunately. Some finance experts say due to inflation, Air Jordans are cheaper in 2015 than they were back in the glory days. Those of us who pay the price for Jays will disagree because at the end of the day $99.99 is better than $200 after tax.
