It was around this time last year that Jordan Brand re-issued the “Lightning” Air Jordan 4, and now another fan-favorite yellow colorway could be returning soon.
Per @zSneakerheadz on Instagram, the “Thunder” Air Jordan 4 is making its way back to retailers in Summer 2023. The trusted leaker account revealed that the forthcoming retro will feature its standard black nubuck upper and vibrant yellow hits. Note that the pair shown above is the prior release of the shoe as images of the purported drop have yet to surface.
The Air Jordan 4 “Thunder” was first released in 2006 and was most recently retroed in 2012. The style debuted exclusively at Jumpman23.com alongside the “Lightning” colorway and has since become one of the most sought-after Air Jordan 4 releases ever.
At the time of writing, Jordan Brand has yet to confirm that the “Thunder” Air Jordan 4 is re-releasing in 2023. Keep it locked to Sole Collector for official updates in the months ahead.
UPDATE (09/13): New info for the purported return of the “Thunder” Air Jordan 4 has emerged. Per @zSneakerheadz, the popular retro will return on May 13, 2023 in full-family sizing. The adult pairs are expected to retail for $210.
UPDATE (02/14): Retail photos of this year’s “Thunder” Air Jordan 4 in grade school sizing have surfaced from @US_11 on Twitter. Unlike the previous leaks that revealed white stitching on the toe, these photos confirm that the forthcoming retro will indeed have black stitching like the original 2006 release. According to @zSneakerheadz on Instagram, the “Thunder” Air Jordan 4 will release on May 13 in full-family sizing.
