While you wait around to see whether or not the Air Jordan IV “Lightning” materializes in 2013, Wale has that angle covered as far as Air Jordans go. The rapper recently showed up to 106 & and Park taping wearing a lightning-colored Air Jordan of old-the Air Jordan XVII from back in 2002. And given his long-standing sneakerhead status, we have the feeling that this is something that’s been sitting in his closet for a minute rather than a random Flight Club purchase for the NY trip. See all the photos of Wale with his Lightnings on right after the jump and tell us if you’ve gained some more respect for the MMG rapper with this most recent wear.

With all the positive feedback Nike must be reading on these 17z i'm sure we will see a few colorways in '14.

Been searching for this shoe for the past 5 years at a REALISTIC PRICE, I can only imagine how outrageous the price is gonna be now that he's been spotted in them!

@JasonBouskill Nothin wrong with flights. If they were limited all the fuck boys would line up for em like they do every other jordan

@TheOddestFuture this shoe in my size 12 for $25 would be beyond Beater status! The cheapest pair I've found on eBay were $135, creased all to hell, discolored, so much heel drag that there was barely any rubber left on the corner of the sole and no box or bags! Lol
