air jordan iv thunder 2012 retro 01 570x427 OFFICIAL:  Air Jordan IV Thunder 2012 Info

Updated: November 16th, 2012

It’s here fellas. The Air Jordan IV ‘Thunder’, released in 2006 in heart-wrenchingly limited units in tandem with a varsity-style jacket, has been confirmed for a Retro release for 2012 – and we’re getting a first look here and now. The 2012 version looks to be spot on with 2006 issue, so the only questions that remain are just how limited these will be, and what this means for the future of Air Jordan Retro releases. The Thunder IV is unquestionably one of the most sought-after Air Jordans ever to the point where collectors are shelling out over $1,000 for a pair, so this upcoming release will certainly ease the financial pain just a tad. The early word is a November 17th release date, so flip through our full photos after the jump and let us know what you think.

Color: Black/White-Tour Yellow
Style: 308497-008
Release Date: 12/22/12

This CANT be real! I HAVE to be dreaming! This shoe is already hard to find now a days unless your willing to pay a Bentley car note on a pair someone is free willing to give up but I cant believe it!

If Jordan starts retroing exclusives i will be the happiest guy ever (sneaker wise) but then again they will lose their exclusiveness so its a bittersweet feeling.

I'm excited. 2013 will be the best year. I honestly thought i would be a 70 yr old grandpa watching my grand kids rock these. Middle finger to them!

As long as they keep doing numbers, they will retro, re-retro and re-re-retro. So dont sweat if you cant cop the first time around folks, another is right around the corner

Funny because I just said all these jordans would re-release in the Air Jordan retro Theme Day post. And people thought I was crazy. JB ain't keeping nothin exclusive anymore.

IMO some Jordan's (i.e. these, mochas etc.) aren't meant to be retro'd, kinda like how they shouldn't bring back the nike air. keep OGs OGs and retros retros. One of the big draws to these shoes (not the upcoming retros) is that you shouldn't have another opportunity to cop them.

 @Koach_CartER word,im still waiting on them to release the taxis!! i was expecting those ,still got hope.

 @a215m30 Yeah i see it now! But I dont really care if it has a black Flight patch or a yellow Flight patch these are iconic none the less

TENDROCKS

 @Air Steve Less than $500, I think your talking about the lightning's. I haven't seen a pair of Thunder 4's go for under $1000.

 @NolanHayes This guy right here holds both a Bachelors and MBA in Business and FAILS to see your point.  However, my nephew left his his violin upstairs and I'd be more than happy to grab it and play a tune for you.

 @NolanHayes Sorry but a buncha Nike/JB executives/accountants just fell off their chair laughing so hard they pissed themselves.

@Fresh3000 @HenryAkinE but they are coming out with grapes and laneys next year

Air Steve

@TENDROCKS Yes but when they released due to the jacket the went for 500 online retail so if there 160 that would be the cheapest they have ever been

NolanHayes

 @VaSneehed bringing them back takes away from what they are. they're limited as fuck for a reason. 

LadariusSimonton

 @VaSneehed of course for now on JB will go by anniversaries releasing OG colorways for sure and few new ones. grapes wuz and so wuz the black metallics

@morekicksthanyou @dsuaveallday That's funny if anyone does pays those prices but no I pay retail, I personal don't like this color, so chill with the negative comment I was just saying how I felt

Kev Loco
Kev Loco

 @NolanHayes  I understand what your saying by they're limited but some people either were unlucky, didn't have the money or just didn't have the time to get these sneakers! And if these do come out these will be a great second chance for people like me who really want this sneaker without having to pay over 1,000 for a pair! Plus it's not like they will put these out as a General Release so relax brodi. So they will still be limited just Jordan Brand might add a few more on the market.
