More Close-Ups: The Air Jordan 4 ‘Lightning’ Strikes in AugustRelease: 28 August 2021
In a year of exciting Air Jordan 4 releases, the return of the ‘Lightning’ is set to be one of the best! More leaked pics and additional details continue to surface, and the latest pictorial gives us another up-close look at the electric pair. Choosing between this and the upcoming ‘Red Thunder’ is going to be tough, so we expect many to cop both for the perfect storm!
News of the return of the ‘Lightning’ started brewing last year, exciting fans at the prospect of copping the fan-favourite colourway known for its vibrant yellow hue across the upper. For contrast, there’s touches of grey, white and black, while all the usual AJ4 features are present, including the iconic mesh netting on the midfoot and forefoot. Of course, a premium nubuck construction is guaranteed.
Debuting back in 1989, the Air Jordan 4 was another iconic design finessed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield. An adventurous divergence from Michael Jordan’s previous signature silhouettes, the sneaker is famed for its bold sculpted tooling, visible Air cushioning, breathable mesh netting, and moulded additions to the eyestay.
