The 2021 edition of the Air Jordan 4 ‘Lightning’ revives a sought-after colorway that made its debut in 2006 as part of a duo alongside the 'Thunder' colorway. These releases were inspired by Michael Jordan's Motorsports team. The Air Jordan 4 'Lightning' features a vibrant yellow nubuck upper, creating a bold and eye-catching look. The black netting and dark grey structural wings provide contrast, enhancing the overall design.
Additional details include grey accents on the woven tongue tag, interior tongue, and Jumpman branding at the heel. The midsole, equipped with visible Air sole cushioning, comes in white and sits atop a dark grey herringbone rubber outsole. This release pays homage to the original 'Lightning' colorway, making it a highly anticipated and nostalgic addition to the Air Jordan 4 lineup.
