A Retro release of a ‘Retro’ colorway isn’t new to the Jordan Brand catalog. The Air Jordan XI ‘Cool Grey’ is the perfect example of how a non-Original colorway can hold the clout as an Original does, but the Air Jordan IV ‘Thunder’ of 2006 is a different story. These limited-edition AJ4s were released as a part of the Thunder/Lightning Pack – a duet of IVs released exclusively online and accompanied by apparel. The Black/Tour Yellow version was dubbed the ‘Thunder’, came packaged with a varsity jacket, and was priced at a steep $500 – the most expensive Air Jordan IV to become publicly available. Quickly enough, the Thunder 4 became a hot collectors item and skyrocketed in resale value to the point where these rare Jordans became close to an unattainable item.
Earlier this year, it was confirmed that the Thunder IV would release in 2012, effectively accomplishing two things: ensuring that these highly coveted Jays would be on many more feet, and bringing down the ‘value’ of these high-priced kicks. Arriving at select Jordan Brand retailers just one day after the monumental Air Jordan XI ‘Bred’, the Thunder IV is clearly one of the best releases of the year and perhaps a key indicator of what may be in store for future Retros. Enjoy the beauty shots of the Air Jordan IV ‘Thunder’ below and let us know where these rank on your list of best kicks of 2012.

Skipped the bred 11s tbh i don't really like the 11s just not my style of shoe. the 2s 3s and 4s are for me so i got my ticket for these in the morning plus even if i wanted the breds i couldnt get them because i have school.
I got 4 pairs of the 11's size 10 and 1 pair of these Thunders... 11's $400 each and Thunder $350... firstname.lastname@example.org I accept paypal
well count me as lucky i have two pairs of breds and a pair of thunders reserved for the morning i wish everyone luck and a safe adventure trying to get these shits
For whoever that dont get these look for the random restock on websites, before christmas, on christmas, or after christmas. Either way a pop will occur, some.retro 9's are popping up on christmas day just dont kno which ones. I got my two pairs of thunders on hold so im good but im letting the word out about the restock incase anyone misses out
I HAVE to get these. My bro already gave me his Space Jams for them and I don't even have a ticket. All I know is when I get them online the sites better not crash because I'm in love with these 11's.
Went To Get A Ticket For These And 14 Hrs Later I Got My Ticket But Mad Shame At The Hypebeast Talking About Reselling The 11s N These SMH What Has The Game Come TO
I want these but I'm 99.9999999% percent sure I won't get these for the following reasons: 1. Stupid raffles 2. websites crashing withing seconds and 3. I just have no luck =/
I will be copping these on Saturday with my holiday money lol. I wish all u luck tmrw with the 11s. I'd cop if I didn't have the cdps. Please no senseless stupidity like last year. These thunders r fresh as hell tho and I look forward to receiving them. Also happy holidays to all
