New York - Nike's first Air Jordan release for 2016 will be a sneaker whose color scheme is inspired by what they thought Michael Jordan would wear on the court if he received player-exclusive colors. The new Air Jordan 4 Retro Alternate 89 will arrive in stores on Saturday, January 2, 2016. The price point for the shoe is 190 dollars. The shoes will also be available for younger Air Jordan fans in grade school, preschool, and toddler sizes, with price points at 140 dollars, 80 dollars, and 60 dollars respectively.

The shoes are based on Jordan's tenure with the Chicago Bulls, and feature a white tumbled leather upper and red accents. The midsole is white and red with a white outsole. The shoe's lining also features red. The Jumpman Flight signature branding is black and red, while the Jumpman logo on the back is also black, and the words Air Jordan are etched in a tag on the other side of the tongue.

While Christmas might have just ended, sneakerheads will certainly be whipping out their credit cards for these new kicks. According to a 2015 article from givemesport.com, Michael Jordan's sneakers bring in an average of 2.25 billion dollars. Shoppers tend to shop less in January, but if these sales figures hold steady, Air Jordan fans will be out for their sneakers this Saturday.
