Jordan Brand still draws inspiration from the past for new lifestyle models like the Air Jordan 11 CMFT Low and Jordan TWO TREY. The Jordan Max Aura line has seen three iterations thus far, with a fourth on the way.

It’s time for a new twist on some classic Jordans

From official photos, we can see that the Air Jordan Max Aura 4 comes in a “Black Cat” colorway that is all black. Like its predecessors, the Max Aura is based on retro models from the 1980s and 1990s. For example, the Max Aura 2 was clearly based on the Air Jordan 11, while the Max Aura 3 was based on the Air Jordan 9. The Max Aura 4 has the same cushioned upper as the Air Jordan 13, and the “Flight” logo on the tongue reminds us of the early 1990s. A new midsole design with a split Air Max unit keeps up the tradition of being able to see the Air. Even though they aren’t exactly for Jordan purists, there is a market for cheaper items that just have the Jumpman logo on them.


The “Black Cat” Jordan Max Aura 4 is one of the best shoes that Jordan Brand has made over the years. The best thing about this pair is how versatile it is on the court. Whether you just played for five minutes or an hour, this shoe can keep up with you.
