Air Jordan 4 “Thunder”
The upcoming release of the Air Jordan IV ‘Thunder’ has a lot of Air Jordan collectors/fanatics thinking about the potential fluctuation in ‘value’ of some of their most prized possessions. The Thunder is one of the hardest pick-ups around, and with the original price being $500, finding a pair for anything close to that is next to impossible these days. With the looming release of the Thunders, the value of the 2006 release will likely see a minor slide downwards, so what does that mean for other rarified Air Jordans? Will we see a re-release of the original DMP Pack or the Raging Bulls (2013 is a hard-focus year for the Air Jordan V). We’d like to hear your thoughts on this controversial topic, so let us know if you a wider release of the Thunder IV is something you embrace or an idea that should not have been explored.
Air Jordan IV
I Need To Find A Store & Settle Down ASAP , I Checked A Couple Stores But They Was Like ''WTF Are Those '' -________- Except Finishline
im a steeler fan and thunder and lightning 4s are right under columbia 11s.....my dude already been paid for 4 pair #2size12 #2size13
Not sure if anyone posted yet, but its a quickstrike from what i was told. Good luck to those trying to get a pair, always thought this shoe was wack though.
When I see these I don't think of Pittsburgh Steelers or anything remotely close to it. This is a clean pair of IV's in a crisp colorway
These shoes r garbage I mean just cuz theyre retro 4s dnt mean theyre the shit just ugly black n yellow dnt work
Even tho I have da 06 version, I think I might grab another pair to have crisp... don't really care dat they re releasin them. I think its fine to have another chance to get a very wanted pair of 4s
I don't care about certain sneakers getting re-released as long as the quality is nice. To be honest, I'm not too fond of this colorway but I'm still picking them up if I can get them. Might hit Oqium for this release...
have a pair of 2006 Size 12 worn 1x and easily pass as DS--never even hit pavement--comes with OG box and all---hit me up if email@example.com
I live in Memphis Tn and the manager of the Finish Line told me he will not have these shoes niether will our local Footlocker.... But the Vault "a small mom and pop store" next door to Finish Line will have them .... They were also one of only two stores in town to get the Yeezy and GMP.... QUICKSTRIKE!!!!! So be ready..... Or you can get some now from SneakerHotline.com like I did ... Why wait ????????????????????????????
dam i needa move to the US cos the footlocker in my country sucks. we dont get much gud releases or colourways so iv missed out on the raptors and now these arent coming over either :(
I won't lie I will hve to cop 2pairs one to rock an one to put on ice .... I was upset wen that cam out I was in middie shcool I ain't get them but I can't wait to get my hand on them now
Ppl with having an attitude.cuz these r re-releasing need to chill. First of all its a busniess and anyway a company wants to make more money they will do it. You have to think like a buisnessman i would do it more profit. Ppl nowadays should kno nothing lasts forever and besides ppl who wanted can get another shot at them. I kno ppl who messed there's up or got stolen so there excited about it. Everybody deserves a chance of getting a hot shoe. I dont believe in these articles bcuz once these sellout you can charge your own price on these. If anything the 06's would go up bcuz there still so limited and the first of its kind, ppl like to play hardball ya kno.
Wiz would disagree. In fact all of Pittsburgh would disagree with you
@infrared lol sux bro, jus order em
@hozezae yea, wut i was thinkin 2. some ppl want a shot at these n hmm idk really know about the "re-release ogs" thing need more time 2 htink lol but i think the ogs will go up not down in the test of time
Yea Iono what they're talkin about in this aricle. I don't really check ebay, but at flightclub the price usually increases on a shoe when it rereleases. I understand the logic of the article though. Since the same thing is coming out, the older one's value should drop. The reason I think that is NOT the case at flight club is because JB DOESN'T RELEASE AN IDENTICAL VERSION to the previous one. There are usually subtle differences in the newer version from the previous release. I believe JB does this intentionally so sneaker fanatics/lovers can tell the difference. The basic essence of the shoe remains in tact, but it has minor differences that only sneaker fanatics would notice. I believe the major difference in this newer thunder so far is the switch from nubuck to suede. I read that on one of these articles, so I can't verify that its true. However, there have been minor differences on recent retro releases from their predecessors and I would think this release would be no different.
@hozezae so true, it's a double standard for us ppl like to keep to "excluded" excluded, and ppl who want the shoe who never had a chance, well it's only fair to give em a chance, but trust even though it's a business they don't need to rerelease non-OG color ways to make money or any for that matter!! If they continue to make new color ways they WILL SELL OUT and they know it
They already gave specific release info. In a previous article. You can't have it both ways. Either you appreciate this site for the knowledge they give you, or you DO NOT COME HERE and you won't get annoyed. You guys crack me up man. "Theres too many articles about this shoe", but yet here you are. Again. Looking at yet another article about the same shoe. With all the articles written and re-written about this shoe on this site, as well as the various other sneaker news sites, how is it you don't know the specifics about this shoe??? I dub thee SneakerDunce
@MartinD44 well its personal preference n I think theyre ugly ima guy who doesnt like black n yellow together im sure ppl in Pittsburgh agree with me
@MartinD44 @hozezae yeh i didnt know this until i unlaced my fire red's but on the side of the tongue that is covered by the laces there is a "twenty twelve" message written on. pretty cool, guess it's on the other IV models that have come out/ or will come out this year. just a pretty awesome small detail that JB did
@erickwright21 true true but check it, if you were in charge of a shoe imprint and u kno you want.great holiday sales every year what will you do, remember your competitors want you to slip up in sales so they can be top dog. Long as JB/nike have a strategy they'll always be on top. Thats how i see it, always make products that are in demand not every but so often
@MartinD44 Dude I know nothing about Pittsburgh sports I just think these retros r wack n yeah I agree the material on these 4s aint the best the bred 4s have better material
Yea maybe people who hate Pittsburgh sports. To each his own my man. At least you're not one to jump on hype band wagons. Not that I am. I personally like the color combo, but I'll tell you what I don't like: ASHY LARRY HANDLING MY SUEDE/NUBUCK Js. It looks like somebody just finished eating some lays and handled this shoe. Come on Mannnnnnnnnnnnnn
@hozezae A very valid point, shit if I knew a Kobe, Kd, lebron, and penny crazy shoe near holidays were to release all on the same day as mine, I'd pull out the big guns
@SneakerGenisus @MartinD44Get the fuck on outta here you lame. You don liiiiiiiiiiiiike you DON BUY. And your personal opinion has been repeated by others like yourself, so you're not the first, don't worry. I don't look for idiots to reply to, but on the topic of hype and ruining the sneaker game, I feel obligated to make sure you direct that hate in the right direction. Namely, at Nike. I don't like when fools like you blame the wrong people. Especially when nike seems to think they have us all fooled. So nothing personal guy. I'm just tryin to kick you some knowledge
@ToonGriffeyJr It's most definItley not a general release and possibly more than a quick strike, almost nobody suspect this blessing!! But they will most likely be available to purchase inside store as well as online!!........... Now saying that is one thing it sure as hell ain't gonna be that easy to garb these
@SneakerGenisus True but I dnt think 4 these though. Plus they already released online dnt think they will do it again. But I KNW for a fact there common out in stores. The question is, is it a general release or quick strike
