The Air Jordan 4 Lightning Release

Key Features of the Air Jordan 4

Tinker Hatfield changed up the game on his second of many Air Jordan designs by amping up the performance and breathability. He kept the AJ 3's mid-cut height, the visible Air unit in the heel and the "Nike Air" emblem on the back. Hatfield also retained the signature Jumpman logo on the tongue.

The Air Jordan 4 implemented a more utilitarian approach. Here's what made it stand apart:

  • Cost-effective Durabuck synthetic leather upper that wipes clean with ease
  • An encapsulated Air unit added to the forefoot
  • The word "Flight" incorporated into the Jumpman logo - Air Jordan is meant to fly, after all
  • The addition of "wings", a multiport lacing system with extra holes for a customized fit and enhanced lateral support
  • A pull tab added to the heel for an easier wearing experience
  • "Over-molded" mesh paneling for increased breathability, the netting was coated with urethane, dipped in soft plastic, then air-blown to remove the plastic from the net's gaps

History of the Air Jordan 4

On May 7, 1989, the world witnessed "The Shot", an impossible feat for anyone other than His Airness. Michael Jordan pulled off this legendary buzzer-beater with assistance from his Black Cement Air Jordan 4s. It was MJ's fifth year in the league and a brilliant display of his growing dominance as a superstar.

The same could be said for Tinker Hatfield, the lead designer for the Air Jordan line. After the tremendous success of the Air Jordan 3, Hatfield had his work cut out for him. Coming on the heels of one of the most popular sneaker designs ever, did he dare mess with the formula? He opted to keep the overall design similar to its predecessor but boosted the performance features.

If the Air Jordan 3 saved Nike's partnership with Jordan, the Air Jordan 4 cemented it - primarily due to the inspired design efforts of Hatfield.

The 2021 Air Jordan 4 Lightning is a rerelease of the 2006 original. One of the boldest and most sought-after colorways of all time, the Lightning features bright yellow nubuck leather uppers and high-contrast black net overlays. Dark gray triangular wings and black plastic lace supports add a distinctive Air Jordan 4 flair. Sculpted gray and white soles, the classic Air Jordan textured heel tab, and visible Nike Air midsole units complete the design. The outsoles feature a herringbone traction pattern and small-scale stars on the toes. The original 2006 Air Jordan yellow shoes featured the Air Jordan logo on the tongue and heel. For 2021, the Nike Air logo appears on the heel instead.

    These are nice. The photos do them no justice. They are a little different from the orignal release, but that's only a slight color difference. Good quality. They are worth buying.
