If Jordan brand has anything to say about it, Christmas 2012 will certainly be a merry one. The Jordan Retro IV “Thunder,” Jordan’s second big retro release of the weekend, will drop today, December 22, for the first time since its original release in 2006. The Retro IV “Thunder” was originally part of the Thunder & Lightning Pack that was exclusively available online and had to be bought with an accompanying jacket. Today, the “Thunder” makes its in-store debut at Foot Locker and House of Hoops by Foot Locker. Different than the 2006 release, the black upper has been made from nubuck instead of suede. Tour yellow accents all over these kicks pop against the dominant black materials. Hints of white can be found on the Jumpman on the shoe’s tongue and heel.
The Jordan Retro IV “Thunder” releases today, December 22, at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker, and online at Footlocker.com. They retail for $160. Kids sizes are also available.
