What was once in the absolute highest tier of “grail” status footwear will soon become an affordable GR. This August 7th, the famed Air Jordan 4 “Lightning” will release for the first time since its original online-exclusive release in August 23rd, 2006. Landing nearly on the fifteenth anniversary of that epic drop, the Jordan 4 “Lightning” will also come with a special shoe-box that features a lightning yellow lid to accompany the speckled grey-on-black.
The Air Jordan 4 “Lightning” arrived at a unique time for Jordan Brand as it was embracing the digital commerce side of things (as was the rest of the industry). It also marked the return of the Air Jordan 4 Retro, the first of its release since the famed 1999 “Nike Air” drops as well as the celebrated LS versions. The Lightning 4s, as mentioned before, were available exclusively online and came packaged with a t-shirt. It’s bold coloring made it highly sought after among Jordan fanatics, with re-sale prices easily eclipsing the four-figure mark and into the $2,000s.
This upcoming 2021 Retro version is confirmed to be releasing in full family sizing, giving all a chance to strike lightning on the release date. See the full official images ahead and stay tuned for more details to unfold as this highly anticipated drop comes, and check out our Jordan Release Dates page to be up to date on all things 2021 Jordans.
