Releasing this Holiday season the Air Jordan 4 Retro “Red Thunder” has a lot of hype to live up to. Taking on such a nickname, for obvious reasons, there is a lot of anticipation for the upcoming release. Looking to walk in the same footsteps as its predecessor the “Thunder” Air Jordan 4, the color blocking is in true form.
Sporting red in place of the popular Yellow, black nubuck is seen throughout. Giving these a nice touch the quality can be expected to satisfy most customers. For many sneakerheads, black and red Air Jordans are always a must.
I will expect this new colorway to do numbers and potentially sell out per usual. Will you look to get a pair or are you staying true to Team OG colorways only? With a family size run expected to be the case come release day, you may consider wanting to pick up a pair now. Check out GOAT and Flight Club, it is the holiday season, shop smart, not hard.
Following several pushed-back release dates, look for the Air Jordan 4 Retro “Red Thunder” to officially drop on January 15, 2022.
Where would the “Red Thunder” AJ4 rank on the all-time list of colorways for this silhouette? It can be argued that the 4s has the best colorways in the Jordan Brand catalog. Will these hit outlets? All things considered, this colorway is clean. So potential selling out day of release is to be expected.
You have people who will look at this colorway as a non-OG colorway and because of this will look to not add it to their collection. This is generally the way things go until the official release date arrives.
The holiday season heading into the new year has several releases lined up. “Red Thunder” included, make sure you stay up to date with all Air Jordan release dates. Staying in the know of release dates and where you can purchase is vital considering how competitive the sneaker game is.
If you aren’t sure on whether to cop a pair of these do yourselves a favor and look at how well 4s have done after releasing and that allows you to see how you fare in the long run, a lot of times sneakers long term can be looked at as investments.
How do the “Red Thunder” AJ4 pair up with more recent Air Jordan 4 Retro releases? You have the popular Taupe Haze & UNC to just name a few. Then of course “Lightning” which is an OG colorway, Jordan Brand provides a taste of old and new school. Once again an ode to bridging the gap between multiple generations. Something the sneaker culture has thrived on.
