According to a 2018 study conducted by the National Weather Service, the odds of any one person in the United States getting struck by lightning once in their lifetime are about 1 in 15,300. What’s more, the chances of being struck by lightning twice in a lifetime are approximately 1 in 9,000,000.
Now, I’m no statistician – nor a meteorologist – but that outcome seems laughably improbable. But no matter the vast improbability, it still happens once in a blue moon. Just ask Jordan Brand.
As we speak, the sportswear empire is gearing up to reintroduce the fan-favorite “Lightning” Air Jordan 4 into the market later this month. Originally released in 2006 alongside a complementary “Thunder” colorway, this electric iteration comes clad in supple “Tour Yellow” nubuck, which covers the upper in near entirety. Elsewhere, “Dark Blue Grey” wings flank the quarter panels, while black mesh netting appears on the side-panel windows and the forefoot. The sneaker is branded minimally, with Jumpman Flight tongue tabs, and TPU Jumpman embellishments on the heels.
Moving toward the sole, you’ll encounter foam midsoles done in which. They’re home to Max Air units in the heels. The release is rounded out with rubber midsoles done in a familiar “Dark Blue Grey” tone.
The Air Jordan 4 “Lightning” is slated to strike September 4th on JimmyJazz.com in full-family sizing. Mark your calendars.
