Official Images // Air Jordan 4 “Lightning”
We know, we know — this gets rumored almost every year — but it looks like it’s actually happening; the Air Jordan 4 “Lightning” is returning in 2021 as per @SHOF and @DJFolk.
One of the first online exclusives to ever release, the ultra-rare Air Jordan 4 colorway first released back in 2006 in highly-limited quantities — a strong factor influencing its > $2.5k aftermarket pricetag. It arrived alongside the equally famed (but more available) “Thunder” colorway, both of which took its color inspiration from the seasonal strip of MJ’s now-defunct Motorcycle racing team. They also arrived alongside special-edition apparel, including jackets and tees.
The sources have pegged the re-release for August 2021, 15 years to the month from its first and only release. Though a while out, we’re not expecting first looks to arrive until early next year, so until then, enjoy a look at the Air Jordan 4 “Lightning” from 2006 here below, and be sure to keep your eyes locked on our official Twitter account for further developments.
Update 11.12.20 // According to zsneakerheadz, the Air Jordan 4 “Lightning” is expected to release on August 7th in both men’s and grade school sizing. The shoe is expected to arrive as close to the ’06 release as possible, and will also come housed in a special box.
Update 04.15.21 // First and official looks at the 2021 Air Jordan 4 “Lightning” have landed and, as expected, arrives as a 1:1 to the original release Though the shape and materials may slightly vary, you can expect much of the same from this year’s reissue than what we saw back in 2006; Tour Yellow uppers, Dark Blue Grey wings, netting, and soles, and a pop of white at the mid.
