Summer 2023 is still quite a ways off, but Jordan Brand fans have already dug up a big piece of the Summer 2023 Air Jordan retro line — the return of the Air Jordan 4 “Thunder.” Originally released in 2006 and last seen in 2012, the “Thunder” has been off the market for a decade and is primed for a rumblin’ comeback that follows in the footsteps of last year’s Air Jordan 4 “Lightning” retro.
The “Thunder” features a “Black/Tour Yellow” color scheme, mixing stark nubuck with high-voltage yellow accents for a striking two-tone look that’s given some extra character by white Jumpman accents on the tongue and heel. Interestingly enough the “Thunder” didn’t cause much of a storm its last release in 2012, remaining on shelves for a semi-extended period instead of selling out on release day. Since then its absence has made the hearts of Jordan Brand fans grow fond though, as it’ll often sell for over $500 on aftermarket sites.
An exact date of release for the Air Jordan 4 “Thunder” has yet to be pinpointed, but look for it to touch down next summer. When it does drop, it’ll retail for $210.
