What was a Grail 15 years ago will soon become a common model in just a few months. The legendary Air Jordan 4 "Lightning" was released on August 23rd, 2006 and on August 7th 2021, and the rare iteration is set to drop once again. This time, however, in a higher quantity to cater to multiple sneakerheads and fans.
But why is the Air Jordan 4 "Lightning" so famous? In 2006, Nike, like the rest of the industry, discovered e-commerce. At the same time, it was the return of the Air Jordan 4, the first of its release since the famous "Nike Air" drops of 1999. The 4 Jordans were sold exclusively online and shipped together with a T-shirt.
Because of its eye-catching colourway, the sneakers were highly sought after by fans. Today, a pair comes with a resale price of 2,000€ on reseller platforms like StockX. The 2021 version probably won't reach that value as quickly, but the colourway is very similar to the OG. They have a yellow base and black details.
