The Air Jordan 4 lineage traces its roots all the way back to 1989 and ever since then there has been a host of stylish variations from the parent line. And one of those memorable highlights came in the way of Air Jordan 4 “Thunder and lightning” packages which encompass a collection of sneakers modeled in the image of yellow thunder and black skies.
Air Jordan 4 Thunder
Color: Black/White-Tour Yellow
Style Code: 308497-008
Release Date: December 22, 2012
The aforementioned alteration of sneakers barely has a dozen years under its belt with the pioneer making the shelf 6 years past the turn of the millennium and its retro-upgrade following suit about six years later. Continuing this trend of reinvention is the new Air Jordan 4 “Thunder” that is set to incorporate the core attributes of its predecessors albeit with a touch of inspired improvement.
The Air Jordan 4 “Thunder” sticks to the black/white-tour yellow color scheme of the 2006 and 2012 versions with the majority of the shoe’s upper taken over by this beguiling fuzzy black that devours all the space but for vivid yellow accents on the classy lacelocks. Amidst the black dominance, an underlying yellow silhouette lays claim to uninhabited areas behind the cover of meshed threads giving off a charming black and yellow display that is candy to the eye.
The white midsole is complimented superbly by wavy black patterns that spread out beautifully around the shoe and runs on to the bottom engulfing the entire outsole in an elegant shade of black but for a small island of white near the shoe’s front end. A Snow white Jumpman claims the center of the base with another miniature version residing atop the overflowing tongue.
The sneakers incorporate a host of artistic and intuitive patterns and designs with various shades of black detailing the various boundaries across the collar region, heel area and the midsole. To cap off the show, the yellow-lined tongue paves way to a laid-back interior that comprises a yellow housing and a dark insole.
