Before we take a detailed look at the latest Air Jordan 4 SE Starfish, let me walk you through this icon sneaker’s history.

Air Jordan 4 has an interesting bit of history behind it. The great Tinker Hatfield was once again behind this silhouette after creating the highly revered Air Jordan 3.

This time, Hatfield wanted a more performance-focused sneaker than a lifestyle one more-so than its predecessors by tweaking the design and achieving a significantly different shape.

The AJ4 has an interesting design process where they dipped the sneaker in soft plastic and blew air through it so that it didn’t look cheap as the air would clean out any residue plastic in between. It also featured an over-molded mesh.

At first, people weren’t feeling this sneaker. Many thought this was ugly while others jumped on the “New Jordan” bandwagon and didn’t look back. Later on, however, the design started to grow among people and it became very popular very fast.

A special quirk of this sneaker is related to the lacing system. You can actually tie it 18 different ways! Just a bit of an intriguing gimmick for fans that value those things.

The Air Jordan 4 retailed for $110 in 1989 and has had various colorways released ever since. To estimate resale for the latest Air Jordan 4 Starfish, let’s head over to StockX.

Air Jordan 4 “Starfish”| Closer Look


Retail Price: $200

Estimated Resell: $250

Release Date: January/21/2021


This black and orange toned Air Jordan was previously mistaken for the “Bred” colorway by fans when it was first revealed. This Air Jordan 4, however, is very different.

Featuring a ballistic mesh build with orange hues that peak through the materials, these kicks appear to transform the black material into a dark brown. Furthermore, black tongues are branded with orange Jump-Man logos while black Jump-Men on orange footbeds embellish the insoles.

At the rear, studded heel tabs sit atop a grey “Jump-Man” while a grey and sail midsole and multicolored outsole complete the design.


Estimated Resell Value

These sneakers will likely sell out fast and even be challenging to cop for most of you out there. Perhaps your best chance of copping a or even multiple pairs is by joining our exclusive Winner’s Circle!

Using my estimated resell value of $250, expect average gross profits of around $50 and more so for the larger sizes. Gross profits may even be higher as they’ve already been sold for $450 on StockX.
