RELEASE RADAR: AIR JORDAN 4 “THUNDER” 2023


By Savanna Lattanzi | March 14th, 2023

On the heels of many other exciting releases, we can also expect a 2023 release of the Air Jordan 4 “Thunder”. The shoe’s last lease was in 2012, and before that, the shoe debuted in 2006. The shoes were first intended for the Jordan Motorcycle Race Team, and at first, were online exclusive. Your purchase would also include a race jacket, in line with the colorway’s original theme. While its release has been teased extensively, it looks like we can finally expect the new release in mid-May. This iteration is said to be more similar to the original design's layouts, drafted in 1989. 


In its classic black nubuck, the “Thunder” is known for its bold contrast between black and yellow, much like lightning in the night sky. Yellow midsole accents, eyelets, and lining lightens the otherwise midnight silhouette. The classic AJ4 “Flight” lettering is also electric yellow below the white jumpman logo. The logo is also brightly displayed on the heel which diverges from other AJ4 designs (typically incorporating the Air Jordan logo instead).


The box design has also been elevated for the new release. The “Thunder” features a yellow jumpman, white “Flight” lettering, and a shiny textured black background.
