Air Jordan 4 Zen Master – a tribute to MJ’s coach

Nike recently officially launched the Jordan Spring 2022 collection. This time with significantly less information than usual. We noticed the Air Jordan 4 Zen Master. We haven't even reported on it yet. All the information we were able to gather about the shoe can be found here in the article.

In the release of the collection, Jordan Brand Product Director Donald Kelsey said: “We don't want to randomly release these OG colors. They must be connected to MJ's story in some way.” The brand takes that really seriously, which is why the Zen Master is also connected to Michael Jordan. This time the connection is not only created with the colors, but also with the name. “Zen Master ” refers to MJ's coach in the Chicago Bulls era. And it's about none other than Philip Douglas Jackson .


Jackson enjoyed meditating and was interested in Buddhism and spirituality in general. The upper of the Jordan 4 and its colors pick up on his hobbies. The tie-dye print in light purple and pink is reminiscent of a galaxy and gives the shoe a certain calm. The heel strap and the classic 4-point supports are made of transparent material. The black nets, laces, elements of the midsole and the black Jumpman logo on the heel provide a contrast. Overall a pretty cool implementation. Anyone who has jammed the MJ documentary must love Philip Douglas Jackson as much as we do. We look forward to the shoe.

The Air Jordan 4 Zen Master is definitely coming in spring as part of the Jordan Spring 2022 collection. As soon as we have final information, you will find it in the release , in the blog and in our free app . You even get push notifications when the release is due.
