The Air Jordan 4 ‘Lightning’ Is Slightly Late
Release: TBC

After whispers of its return started as far back as last year, official pics have now emerged of the Air Jordan 4 ‘Lightning’, and it sure is an electric look. Dominated by a vibrant yellow hue across the upper, the overall aesthetic cops contrast from judicious touches of grey, white and black. As you’d expect, the remainder of the silhouette features all the usual AJ4 goodies, including the iconic mesh netting on the midfoot and forefoot, and premium nubuck uppers. 

First hitting the hardwood in 1989, the Air Jordan 4 saw Tinker Hatfield expand on the design language he’d used on MJ’s previous signature silhouette. While details like bold sculpted tooling, visible Air cushioning, and the unmistakable Jumpman remained, the AJ4 added breathable mesh netting on the upper and tongue, as well as ‘wings’ and moulded additions to the eyestay to allow for multiple lacing options. 

If you’re feeling the AJ4 after scoping these pics, make sure you check out our list of the All-Time Greatest Air Jordan 4 releases. It’s so big we had to break it into parts one and two.

Pairs of the Air Jordan 4 ‘Lightning’ are expected to release on August 28, which gives you plenty of time to sort an outfit that will match these loud ballers.
