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.
