How to Get the Air Jordan 4 ‘Military Blue’ Sneaker Early Through Nike Snkrs’ ‘Exclusive Access’

The highly anticipated Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” is set to get a wide release May 4, but before that Nike will select people an early opportunity to purchase through the “Exclusive Access” system on its Snkrs app.

To qualify, app users will have had to have entered at least two drawings for Air Jordan 4s without being chosen from January 1, 2023 through March 1, 2024. Nike will select random users who meet this criteria to have “Exclusive Access” for purchase, but those chosen will still have to act quickly to purchase because Snkrs won’t hold pairs for anyone. It’s therefore recommended to have your notifications to find out if you’ve been granted access on the morning of Thursday, April 25.

Officially renamed “Industrial Blue,” this original Air Jordan 4 colorway is releasing for the first time in 12 years. This year’s drop renders the sneaker in its original proportions and makes it the last of the OG Air Jordan 4 colorways to be rereleased the period accurate “Nike Air” branding on the heel rather than the Jumpman logo that was latter added for retros.

The Air Jordan 4 has become a fixture of Air Jordan releases over the past year, which means there’s a good chance many people failed to win several raffles during the period of eligibility. Among the drops within the relevant time frame were this year’s coveted Air Jordan 4 “Bred Reimagined,” as well as Nike SB x Air Jordan 4 “Pine Green,” Air Jordan 4 “Thunder” and Air Jordan 4 “Red Cement” all from 2023.

If you’re not given “Exclusive Access” Thursday, you’ll still have a chance to enter the regular draw for the Air Jordan 4 “Military Blue” May 4 on the Snkrs app. Third-party retailers will also have stock, and sizes will be available for men ($214), big kids ($160), little kids ($100) and toddlers ($85).
