Air Jordan 4 Retro "Thunder" Black/Tour Yellow 2006 vs 2012

On December 22nd, 2012, the "Thunder" Air Jordan 4 Retro was re-released. Originally released six years prior in 2006. Here's a side by side comparison between the first release and the most recent one.
When the Air Jordan 4 Retro returned in 2006, we saw many colorways release both new and original. Perhaps one of the most coveted of the new colorways was the Air Jordan 4 Retro LS "Thunder" colorway. A part of the "Thunder & Lightning" Pack which was a very limited online exclusive release. Since their release, they have been very hard to find and sought after. So when news broke out that they would be re-released and, available in stores for the first time, many people were excited they now had a chance at getting a pair of these for a decent price.

The 2006 and 2012 releases are very similar to one another. Shape and cut are a bit different as to expect but other than that, they are pretty much identical. The Air units are different color between the two but that's pretty much it. So enjoy this side by side comparison of my personal pairs of the 2006 Air Jordan 4 Retro LS and the 2012 Air Jordan 4 Retro "Thunder" editions below. The pair on unlaced (on the left) is the 2006 release and the pair laced (on the right) is the 2012 release. If you are looking to either of these, click here to grab a pair on eBay.
