According to leaker accounts DJ Folk, Soleheatonfeet, and zSneakerheadz, an Air Jordan 4 dressed in the "Tour Yellow/Multi-Color/Multi-Color/Dark Blue Grey" colorway is slated to release in August '21. The reporting also included images of the "Lightning" Jordan 4 that released in 2006, which suggests that the upcoming pair could be similar. The bold '06 iteration was inspired by Michael Jordan’s Motorsports team and has gone on the become one of the most coveted Jordan 4 colorways after releasing as an online exclusive to jumpman23.com.
