There are a few Air Jordan colorways that you just don’t expect to ever get the retro treatment. All of the OG’s for instance are fair game, but the more limited and newer era pairs kinda come with the notion that it’s one and done as far as their release (save for a few of the more iconic ones, see: Air Jordan XI ‘Cool Grey’). Breaking that mold is the word that the Air Jordan IV ‘Thunder’ will be making its way back onto retail shelves in late 2012, likely doing so in limited numbers once again. Stick with Sneaker News for further info surrounding this surprising re-release and let us know us know if you think the Air Jordan IV ‘Thunder’ return is the signifier of a new day in which Retro+ colorways will be coming back with more regularity. Also, hit the jump with us for a look at a sample pair of this Air Jordan IV release that was floating around last fall.
