This past Saturday’s release of the Air Jordan IV ‘Thunder’ made it clear that Jordan Brand will Retro whatever it wants, whenever it wants! One of the most hard-to-obtain Air Jordan Retros of all time released just one day after the Bred XIs dropped, but apparently JB will run the table with the 2006 Thunder/Lightning Pack as the Air Jordan IV in tonal Tour Yellow is headed for a release this March, according to members of the NT community. The tentative release date is March 2nd, 2013, so if you’re looking to complete your Thunder/Lightning Retro set, you won’t have to wait too long (and it does indeed make sense for both pairs to re-release). Thoughts on this projected release? Take a look at the 2006 release version and let us know what your thoughts are in the comments below.
Air Jordan IV “Lightning”
Info via Bad Lieutenant/GrapeApe on NT
Got the thunders and I want these joints too. With that little bit of purple stuff, these'll go hard with my Lakers jerseys.
lol ahhh man jordan keep re releasing everything and a ton of idiots flock the store for it smh. the game is done!!!!
Thunder IVs should be the ticket to buying these. I'm going to be too pissed if I can't cop the other have of the Thunder/Lightning IVs retro.
Got my Thunder IVs.. just hope these faggot f-ckin hypebeasts in Jackson, MS don't go for these, when they slept on the Thunders. 97/100 of the people who try to get these in Jackson are hypebeasts, because VERY few of them have the Thunder IVs, and very few of them (even some with the Thunder IVs) even know the history of Air Jordan.
I wonder how the ppl who paid $250.00 for these with the shirt (or was it a jacket) that came with must be feeling now? :D
this is great news for people who have an og pair on ice with the shirt in a plastic bag.
now they can finally wear the 2013 retro.
I want them... But I want those all red joints that was seen a few weeks ago too.. and these prolly gone be super hard to get like the breds
I'm sort of starting to think that Jordan brand is going to be closing down soon that's why theire releasing so much heat next year. Just my opinion
These will be a nice ass bday present for myself. I was able to get the thunders, and ive been looking for these forever. Now i can finally get them. Next year is gonna be nuts i swear.
I think this is gods way of telling me Im getting a yellow pair of Jordans cause I missed the thunders Im deff getting these
ill pray for everyone, including me, thats copping these and all other heat next year. hopefully we all will be able to get what we want safely.
@Dezfriednutz Raise your game.
@cavemattu either a teenager or u just started gettin js yesterday
@cavematt ROTFL he said "pikachu" my day is made....the title clearly defines the colorway of the Jordan...do research kid
@Nike_wat_irock_94 ha ha he says 7th grade ..:)
@Thunderplunder More like joining back with Nike, perhaps! :)
@Thunderplunder Been thinking the same thing. Just can't see them putting anything new out. Always re-retro-ing, the retros.
@23kicksfor23chicks And they probably will :)
Im a real sneakerhead who loves some retros not every retro color just cuz its an AJ
I think i know the title defines the colorway but reread my comment ull realize i was being sarcastic douche
@BigDickPapi A hypebeast is some1 who cops kicks he doesnt even like. Isnt it obvious i dnt like these u retard & u fuck off
@Cop em and Rock em @Thunderplunder are u dudes serious. They're a multi billion dollar business, its called supply and demand. Whatever is hot or can make money to beatdown competition even tho they dont really have comp to compete with them they know what to do to earn more money. There greedy they want u to spend money, didnt yall take economy classes. Yall talking like they broke or desperate, if u had a company u need to be aggressive not passive.
