Air Jordan 4 Thunder and Lightning

Online exclusive releases are nothing new for Air Jordan shoes. First, there were the Air Jordan 12 “nubucks” and then in spring 2005, all out hysteria broke out with the release of the laser Jordan 4. Now, August 23, 2006, there will be yet another online exclusive release.

Packaging clothing and accessories is nothing new for online exclusive releases either. Both of the prior ones required you to buy the shoes with an article of clothing and a hat or visor. Both prior releases rang in at $200 which was reasonably low considering only days after the release, the shoes were selling for $500+ alone on eBay. The last release caused the most controversy ever in regards to resellers. Some individuals planned ahead of time and were able to get as many as 13 pairs out of the limited stock of 3,000! It was a resellers dream – buy for $200, then sell for more than double in less than a week.

Alot of angst towards resellers came as a result of the release and Jordan Brand was made aware of the problem from many outcries from the sneaker community. This time around, Nike is going to make sure that people don’t buy JUST to hope to fetch a huge profit – instead, Nike is pricing the Air Jordans extremely high – $250 for the “Lightning” Jordan 4, and $500 for the “Thunder” Jordan 4.

The Lightning Jordan 4 will come with a matching T-shirt. The Thunder Jordan 4 will come with an exclusive matching jacket. There has been already alot of mixed feelings to the news of the price amongst the sneakerhead community. Many argue, that a shoe which would normally cost $125 in stores being sold for 4 times as much makes the shoes unaffordable to Jordan’s target market.

    Sad news for Jordan Fans, hope you sitting down for this The Jordan release that we all been waiting for is comin Aug 23 but not to stores or Eastbay. I ???m talkin about the release of Retro 4???s Yellow/grey and Black/ yellow they are going to be sold as a bundle the yellow 4???s with a shirt $250 and black/yellow 4???s with a matching jacket $500. It???s true go to Jumpman23.com for pictures or call nike.com yourself. I think the price is way overrated seeing the release was only suppose to be $125 for the shoes. Nike is Jackin us for the money.

  2. Tomeka

    Did I mention you can only buy one bundle! Which one is it gonna be Bundle#1 the Yellow/Grey retro 4???s with a t-shirt for $250, or Bundle#2 the Black/Yellow retro 4???s with matching jacket that used to be only sold to Celebrity???s first time public release $500.

  3. Tomeka,

    I know what you mean about the price being pretty steep. I honestly will be passing on both because I would much rather put my money towards some classics rather than hype.

    In the next several months the following classics will be releasing:
    Grape Jordan 5
    Fire Red Jordan 5
    Black/Silver Jordan 5
    Fire Red Jordan 3

    Total price for those 4 pairs is $540.

    hmmm, 4 pairs of heat, or one pair of shoes with a jacket that is probably not going to fit me only if I am 7 feet tall? I think I know which I will take.

  4. chrisGO

    hold up folks, so am i hearing this right…you can get the shoes ONLY if you buy that bundled package? Online, im sure thats the case…but what about Niketowns and Urban Acct shops???

    Im low on money, so it was either going to be these Lightning IVs or the Military IVs next month. Thanks for helping me decide with your greed, Nike!!!

  5. chrisGO

    an interesting excerpt from a NikeTalk post about this AJ pack…

    PO2345 , one of the most reliable sources of JB info made a very legitimate point about the upcoming Thunder and Lightning packs to be offered by JB, that needs to be addressed
    Quote:
    ——————————————————————————–
    JB’s is anxiously waiting to see how these Bundles do..I’m not going to get into any specifics yet,but if JB sees these items sell-out,then you guys don’t want to see what they have in store next… This is the time to boycott…And to tell you the truth,i don’t see how it would be hard to refuse…But if yall don’t make a stand now,it will be too late… Just an insider trying to warn you of the consequences that can arise..Hopefully the majority of this board and the “hypebeasts” across the Country can make an exception for this release,because the results are going to determine alot of things regarding the future of JB..
    ——————————————————————————–

    For those of you who like the pack and are going to purchase this is not at all a stabb at you. Every consumer has the right to purchase whatever they like.
    With that said, I’d like for each NT member and vistors also to make a well though decision before jumping onto the “limited bandwagon”.

  6. L-WTZ

    that a bunch of b-s big price’s for ugly color’s . and the jacket and the shirt look like is made of chea material .

  7. AD

    they are different so that makes it a hot shoe in my opinion, so im going to get both packages and just add to my collection

  8. Tomeka

    After reading all the comments It’s a sad Jordan day, because if I was a dude I’d probably get both packs just to be floosy, but I’m not. I was going to shoot for the Yellow/Gray 4’s bundle and give the overrated shirt to my mom or male cousin beacause I don’t wear mens clothes. The Black/Yellow 4’s bundle for$500 is out the question NO WAY for my pockets because the Military Blues are right around the corner Sept 9! And chrisGo comment#4 is right, however this sells is going to determine future pricing on Jordan Releases wether limited editions or not. To boycott is a good idea, but there are to many Jordans fans that’s willing to go the extra mile and pay at all cost I Know that would be unsuccessful. So Jordan fans the new motto is “Save, Cope or Pass” which one will it be for Future Purchases.

  9. David

    Yeah i think, those sweaters are nice, and i think yall should make a white one, a black one, a red one, and many more to mactch them out with the different colors of 4’s

  10. JayFear

    This package = A BIG WASTE OF MONEY!!

    I’m better off coppin a grail or some of this Retro heat coming for ’06-’07.

  11. trey

    Man I hope a lot of people make the right decision and refuse to buy these shoes. $500 for one pair of shoes and a jacket? And I can’t even get the other pair for $250? At least the DMP pack had two pairs of shoes and even that wasn’t $500.

  12. Jermaine

    500????? Get da hell outta here, what…how did they come up with that price 250 for the shoes and 250 for the jacket…..u got me chopped and screwed or sumthin. The damn defining moments package was only 300 n they want 500 for this. Get outta here, i aint cheap but damn!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Lil Wayne's gal

    Mann. Thas some bull, if i was a dude i would be pissed. i caint get these shoes either way cuz they only in men sizes,7 and up.

  14. PSTONE

    THAT CRAZY I WISH I WOULD PAY THAT PRICE!!!!!!!!!!!!! ARE THEY CRAZY CAN YOU LIVE IN THOSE SHOES SEE THAT WHAT WRONG WITH OUR PEOPLE WE FORGET WHAT IMPORTANT TELL NIKE OR JORDAN HE SHOULD BE GIVING IT AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. J-Sinn

    That much money for something that looks like roadsigns? BS man, I wouldn’t pay that much for 2 pair! Let alone one pair of shoes that the department of transportation painted. I’m good, I’ll get the military blues and then call it quits on the jordan 4’s, there’s too many out there now.

  16. Jasmin

    I feel that this is to much to pay for a pais of shoes i understand that they might come in a pack, but everybody cant fit that what if we just want the shoe. There are shoes that look better than that and cost way less.

  17. Tony

    Man If you you but thoese just a dumdass that real dumb wat they did any way i was calling niketown everyday ask about the black ond yellow and they told me 125 for the shoe i call on the 16 of aug they told it change to 500 i just said forget you that wrong wat jordan to us and am getting the military blues and the grapes in sep so don’t get these shoes it a waste of money

  18. rj

  19. $n3@kerP!mp:n

    It would be crazier if they were a general release…but its still a railroad job…$3.20 for gas $500 for Jays? WATDFXUP..I paid $115 for my retros, I’m not going to trick off double& or 4times the bread for sum joints that crease like all the rest& jordanbrand gear?..come on..nobody rocks that sh** ‘cept Jeter,Owens &’nem…bunk move JB.

  20. myspace.com/hermgerm2000

    i would like to boycott but i cant. Thunder is too hot but $500 is too much. Remind u that the DMP was $300 and that was for 2 pairs and 1 of them was the GREATEST JORDAN of ALL TIME..I cant decide til probably that day… thanks NIKE!!!

  21. spitatchu

    i been waitin for 4 months for these 4’s. first i found out they were limited. then i found out that the lighting 4’s were going to be on eastbay, while there were only 500 pairs in the thunder 4’s. now i found out about packages that cost well over my jordan budget for september. man i got other 4’s and 5’s to cop. like those black/university blue 5’s. dem junks is tooooooooo blood! and don’t think bout gettin them.

  22. Yung Hustla

    See just what i tell u, Jordan just trying to make us poor! I mean dam the jacket is sooooo fresh and the black n yellow are probably the coldest colorway that isnt a bulls color. I guess i cant afford them so imma stick wi the fives and the 3’s!

  23. 23fan4life

    After reading all your comments, I will agree NOT TO BUY THESE.
    Is it just me or are JORDANS getting more expensive every year.
    Then JORDAN BRAND comes out with another stupid package, geez, give me a freaking break. I like the BLACK AND YELLOW 4’s, but there is no way in hell I’d pay $500 for them. I don’t even like the jacket, it’s a piece of crap! JORDAN BRAND, you are disappointing every year, and you are about to lose one of your most loyal buyers. Point, blank and period.

  24. 23fan4life

    Cool BIF, but we don’t whine about the price, because we probably don’t make as much money as you do, so enjoy your $500 shoes and shirt that perhaps cost about $40 to make in CHINA or TAIWAN, PROPS TO YOU BIF !!!!

  25. JP

    I was planning to buy the “Lightning” IVs but not for $250! That’s enough to buy the Military Blues and another pair of my choice. The t-shirt is nice, but not for $125 more dollars! I agree with the #3 comment- much better decision for around $500.

  26. BIF

    yea 23fan4life but if your a fan of the shoes supposedly and this is a unique colorway why not try to make way for the shoes?

  27. OLDJUMPMAN33

    HEY BIF, I AGREE WITH 23FAN4LIFE, IT DON’T COST TOO MUCH TO MAKE THESE SHOES OVERSEAS, YOU’RE BASICALLY HANDING YOUR MONEY OUT TO JORDAN BRAND… THERE WILL BE MORE UNIQUE COLORWAYS IN THE FUTURE FOR RETRO JORDAN SHOES, JUST BE PATIENT. BESIDES, DO YOU REALLY THINK THEY ARE WORTH $500, COME ON… THE JACKET DON’T EVEN MATCH THE SHOES MAN. IF I WON THE LOTTO, I’D BUY THEM TOO, IN A HEARTBEAT!

  28. 23fan4life

    hey BIF, how much do you make at your job anyways? and what kind of work do u do? u can afford them J’s, go 4 it, I have a house to pay off, I only pay certain J’s. I last got the DMP’s, and that didn’t cost me $500…! 2 pairs of shoes I got. No cheap shirt to trick me into paying more for one pair of 4’s.

  29. OLDJUMPMAN33

    HEY BIF, ARE YOU REALLY GOING TO WEAR THOSE OUT IN THE STREETS, YOU’LL RUINED THEM THE SECOND YOU STEP OUT ON THE SIDEWALK, AND WHAT ARE PLANNING TO WEAR WITH THEM… SOME YELLOW PANTS OR YELLOW SHIRT WITH SOME YELLOW SOCKS OR SOMETHING… NO OFFENSE, BIF.

  30. 23fan4life

    yo jumpman33, lay off, I’m just saying they’re too much. $500 is crazy!!! I like the black/yellow 4’s myself, but $500 is way out of my league. Let’s see how much they sell for on EBAY afterwards, then it’s gonna go really crazy high like $800-$1000

  31. 23fan4life

    I would get the black yellow 4’s, but not for $500. You all can keep the freakin’ jacket, if the shoes were $200, maybe…?
    You know JORDAN BRAND is just robbing you guys.

  32. chrisGo

    man, whoever said they were buying the 500 black/yellows just dont understand the repercussions of that purchase. by buying them, youre basically telling Jordan Brand that its ok to make these ridiculous packages because fools will actually buy them.

    Profit for Jordan Brand = million$
    Profit for the TRUE sneakerheads = 0

  33. 23fan4life

    BUT BIF WILL BUY THEM, PEOPLE LIKE BIF ARE BUYING THEM SO JORDAN BRAND WILL ONE DAY MAKE PACKAGES FOR $1000 ONE DAY, AND HE’LL STILL BUY THEM, RIGHT BIF?

  34. OLDJUMPMAN33

    YOU’RE RIGHT CHRISGO, I PASS ON THESE, LET’S SEE IF JORDAN BRAND WILL LOWER THEM IF THEY DON’T SELL OUT…! YEAH, RIGHT! WAIT TILL PEOPLE RE-SELL THEM ON EBAY, THEY BE MORE FOOLS PAYING MORE THAN $500 FOR THEM.

  35. Tomeka

    Ah guess what? I agree with coment#53 ChrisGo, and guess what else…The Jordan 4’s Thunder-N-Lightning Bundle is the new Xbox 360 on the market, go head and ask Nike. Call them the Xbox 360 bundle from now on.

  36. young me

    who in the world would pay $250 for a pair of sneakers and a shirt also who do you know that would pay$500 for a pair of sneakers and a jacket not me I kinow that for sure if jordan wanted to make the sneaker so exclusive he should’ve of made a certain amount of pairs not jack the sneaker price to a all time high with prices like that he could keep the sneakers where they at

  37. 23fan4life

    BUT BIF WILL STILL GET THEM, BECAUSE HE CAN AFFORD THEM, I GUESS HE WON THE LOTTO OR SOMETHING, OR HAS RICH PARENTS. PEOPLE LIKE BIF WILL STILL GET THEM. AND WHEN THEY SELL OUT, THEN BRAND JORDAN WILL SELL THEIR NEXT DMP’S FOR $800-$1000, BECAUSE FOOLS LIKE BIF(NO OFFENSE)WILL PAY FOR THEM.

  38. OLDJUMPMAN33

    YOU GUYS SHOULD CHECK NIKETALK.COM, AND LOOK IN JORDAN BRAND. ALL KINDS OF CRAZY STUFF BEING SAID ABOUT THESE 4’S. JUST CLICK ON JORDAN BRAND, THEN SELECT THE “BOYCOTT THE THUNDER AND LIGHTNING PACKAGE”, SEE FOR YOURSELVES…

  39. Untouchble T

    Da shoes r nice but $500… Mane please an im a true 4 life Air force 1s & Jordan Walker… fuk yall my buget is $200… Texas Boy

  40. 23fan4life

    hey BIF, you have a fan now, UNTOUCHABLE T sounds like he’s gonna them thunder 4’s too, he must have rich parents too :)

  41. OLDJUMPMAN33

    YOU GUYS, JUST A WARNING, I REMEMBER IN THE OLD DAYS, PEOPLE WOULD GET MUGGED AND STEAL YOUR JORDAN SHOES OFF OF YOUR FEET, EVEN SHOT AT AND EVEN STABBED, PERSONALLY, I WOULDN’T PAY $500 FOR JORDANS, BUT IF YOU DID, AND WORE THEM OUT IN A BAD NEIGHBORHOOD… YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. I SPEAK FROM EXPERIENCE.
    BAD PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT EXPENSIVE JORDANS SHOES, PEOPLE CRAZIER THEN YOU GUYS, THAT WOULD GO BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY JUST TO COP THEM, EVEN BY HURTING YOU AND STEAL THEM FROM YOU.

  42. 23fan4life

    I just thought of why they called them THUNDER AND LIGHTNING,
    THUNDER: because it’s thunderous on your wallet=$500
    LIGHTNING: because is lighter on your wallet=$250
    I know it’s lame, I couldn’t help myself.

  43. Tomeka

    To be honest I’ve paid $250-300 for shoes before,#1 Nike Zoom Lebron James III (All Star Game) 2006 All Star Game edition. And #2 DJ AM Dunk High Premium “Mighty Crown Edition” (bison / bison / bone) *very limited tier 0 Edition only 1000 pairs released. And I’ve paid $200 for a couple pair of Air Force 1’s the Air Force 1 Low (Easter Egg Edition)AND Air Force 1 Low (Olympic Silver Edition). So the money I have, and spent before, and I was going to cope the Lightning Bundle but this time I might pass because I went to niketalk.com and read their Boycott reasons and with your comments also and this matter is WAY SERIOUS and decided the overpricing has got to stop and I refuse to contribute. Has Nike gotten as bad as the resellers.

  44. Tomeka

    Nike is trying to sell us these packs and bundles because guess what folks JB clothing does not sell very well, just a few t-shirts here and there, and the jerseys don???t sell that fast either. And all Major Retailers hate to sell their merchandise at discount price.

  45. j.burna

    jordan brand and nike discuss me i mean come on 500 dollars for some sneakers lets get serious here jordan is by far the greediest company i have ever seen. we the jordan community really for a change need to boycott that whole package no matter how bad some of you jordan heads want those thunder and lightnings.its not right they should show us the jordan community a little more appreciation then that after all we made them what they are today. im very dissapointed in michael jordan himself for allowing this to happen.

  46. j.burna

    stephon marbury has shoes at steve and berry’s for 14.98 and a clothing line for 9.98 and they are not bad looking shoes he has them at that price because he knows what it is like to want those expensive sneakers and never could get them because of brands like jordan and nike he gonna make parents all over the country very happy and proud of him because he’s doing the right thing and not robbing people for there money. those jordan prices are ridiculous and they will never see my 500 dollars. go starbury!

  47. 23fan4life

    I agree with the JORDAN BRAND clothing, not only that it’s ugly, it’s also overpriced. I was at THE GREAT MALL IN MILPITAS not too long ago, they were getting a bunch clothes from JORDAN BRAND for 75% discount in the NIKE outlet store. I walked out of there with decent looking JORDAN pants and jacket totalling $50.00. The pants were originally $70.00 and the jacket $80.00. Everything was marked down!!! Even the 21’s were like $90.00, the white, black and red one, the first colorway, they had my size 8.5, but I didn’t need it. JORDAN BRAND, your stuff is not worth what you’re seeling for… way OVERPRICED. YOU ALL AGREE WITH ME ON THIS !!!

  48. OLDJUMPMAN33

    IN MY OPINION, I THINK WE’RE ALL A BUNCH OF FOLLOWERS. JORDAN HAS DEREK JETER, RAY ALLEN, TERRELL OWENS, MARVIN HARRISON, RANDY MOSS, ALL BIG NAMES ATHELETES THAT WE ALL SEE WEAR JORDAN CLOTHING AND SHOES, THEN WE’RE LIKE, I GOTS TO GET THE NEW JETERS, OR THE NEW MOSSES, OR THE NEW T.O.’S(HE INSPIRED THE BLACK ALTITUDE GREEN 13’S BY THE WAY), AND WE RACE TO THE STORE AND STAND IN LINEAND PAY TOP $$$ FOR THEM. IT’S ALL HYPE AND SMART MARKETING BY JORDAN. HE RETIRED YEARS AGO, HE’S NOT EVEN WEARING THE NEW J’S IN THE NBA ANYMORE. SO WHY DO WE STILL BUY THEM, BECAUSE THEY MAKE US JUMP HIGHER, PLEASE!!!

  49. ajaxx

    dats BS 4real, these kix r not even close to being a DMP and they cost way more than da DMP, somebody needs 2 do an investigation..i smell a skeem..5 bills is ridiculous

  50. 23fan4life

    I always thought that JORDAN CLOTHING was overpriced. But in my opinion, I think they were made for the BIG NAME STAR ATHLETES who can afford them because they make millions of $$$. They probably get them for free. And then we want to buy them because it looks good on them. I bought some JORDAN shorts once, they were TOO LONG on me. I’m only 5’7″, man. These clothes are for tall guys man. Abouth the shoes, I predict JORDAN will try to get a PITTSBURGH STEELER to sign with them and market their THUNDER AND LIGHTNING 4’s, HINES WARD MAYBE? BEN ROETHLISBERGER? Then suddenly, they’re not limited anymore, cuz JB will want to sell more… WOW, PROFIT!

  51. OLDJUMPMAN33

    I SMELL A BIG TIME SCHEME TOO. WHEN THEY SELL OUT ON JUMPMAN23.COM, IMAGINE HOW MUCH THESE WILL SELL FOR ON EBAY AFTER? AND WHEN THE NEXT DMP’S COME OUT(PACKAGE OF 3’S AND 13’S) JB WILL SELL THOSE FOR $800-$1000. BUT WAIT…! IN ORDER TO BUT THE DMP’S YOU’LL PROBABLY GONNA HAVE TO BUY A SHIRT OR JACKET TOO, SO WHEN WILL THIS MADNESS STOP??? AND YOU FOOLS WILL STILL PAY AND STAND IN LINE FOR THEM, UNBELIEVABLE. JORDAN BRAND? CAN I BE A PART OF YOUR BRILLIANT SCHEME? I WANT TO BE RICH TOO? LIKE SOMEONE ONCE SAID, IF A PIECE OF CRAP HAD THE JUMPAMN LOGO ON IT AND THEY CALLED THE DOOKIES 4’S, YOU GUYS WOULD STILL BUY THEM !!!

  52. 23fan4life

    THE SCHEME IS: MONEY. JORDAN BRAND just wants to rip us off. And MICHAEL JORDAN is laughing all the way to the bank. He should be thanking us for putting his kids through college. We buy his shoes so foolishly, and pay over the top prices for them. HOW MUCH DO YOU ALL REALLY THINK IT COST TO MAKE THESE IN TAIWAN OR CHINA OR INDONESIA? COME ON PEOPLE, WHEN YOU GONNA WAKE UP? GO TO NIKETALK.COM AND READ ABOUT SOME JORDANHEADS BOYCOTTING…! AND HOPE IT SHEDS SOME LIGHT INTO YOUR COMMON SENSE !

  53. Untouchble T

    Man please… i aint got know rich parent im from a hood in Houston called DEAD END what i was trying 2 say 234life if i see a niga with them on we jacking im not paying $500 4 some Js if u were a real J walker u understand holla back… Texas Boy

  54. sherman delva

    I LOVE THESE SHOES ,BUT I WOULD HAVE TO AGREE WITH #76 COMMENT. I WOULD LOVE TO GET A PAIR , BUT I DON’T HAVE THE MONEY.

  55. rare air

    they wonder why people are wearing fake shoes

    why waste 250 or 500 on these when you could get them fake for like 60 bucks

    im not with fakes at all i hate fake shoes but honestly come on nike next they will be chargin an arm or a leg for a pair of kicks

  56. OLDJUMPMAN33

    I HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT NIKETALK.COM UNDER JORDAN BRAND AND THE BOYCOTTING OF THUNDER AND LIGHTNING, TOO MANY COLLECTORS ARE PISSED. I’M READING STUFF LIKE JORDANS ARE NOT FOR POOR PEOPLE, THAT ONLINE EXCLUSIVES ARE NOT FOR EVERYONE BUT FOR THE DIE HARD COLLECTORS, ETC. I AM READING THAT IF YOU WANT THEM, THEN GET THEM, DON’T CRITIZE THE PEOPLE WHO GET THEM. BUT JB IS DESPERATE NOW, BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT AFTER THE 23’S, THE RETROS CAN ONLY SELL SO MUCH AND PROFIT JB SO LONG. JORDAN BRAND… IT WAS A FUN RIDE.

  57. 23fan4life

    SLIM, did u really? which one’s did you get? you must know someone from NIKE/JB. I bet u got a discount…! :)

  58. OLDJUMPMAN33

    TELL ME YOU REALLY DIDN’T GET THEM, SLIM…?!!
    GEEZ, ANOTHER SUCKER. HOPE IT WAS WORTH YOUR $500 BUCKS…!

  59. 23fan4life

    Just found out from NIKETALK…
    THE TOUR YELLOWS ARE ONLY 1000 MADE.
    THE BLACK/TOUR YELLOWs ARE ONLY 500 MADE.
    LIMITED SHOES INDEED.

  60. “Just found out from NIKETALK???
    THE TOUR YELLOWS ARE ONLY 1000 MADE.
    THE BLACK/TOUR YELLOWs ARE ONLY 500 MADE.
    LIMITED SHOES INDEED.” – 23fan4life

    With those kinds of numbers, the tour yellows do somewhat justify the price, but the black/yellow ones are still way too much.

    I really wish that Gentry Humphrey called on me at Sole Collector event when he was playing Jordan trivia for kicks. The prize I would have gotten from him were the Tour Yellow IVs! :-(

    Oh well, at least he still gave me some free stuff. :-D

  61. Koofie Smacker

    Man Nike & JB are going crazy $500 for a jacket and some retro 4’s they might as well just made the package exclusive to rich kids and stars cause that’s who can get em and not worry about the price.

  62. Cedes

    You know honestly , I think both or the sneakers are real hot u know but it just don’t make no sense that the prices are that high. Hoenstly i feel the Thunders caught my eye the most out of the two but when I saw the price I was dumbfounded it made no sence you know . I am thinking about contacting Nike because this is just rediculous at least lower the price 150 less u know. I want those but about time I save up will take me like 3weeks and they wil be gone trust and believe . So I guess there is no hope for this new hype it is a shame that the nike market is doing a crule and rediculous thing this should have been takin into consideration. We all know you have to have some doe to purchase Jordans but we all aren’t rich either so WHAT THE HELL!!!! I would have taken the thunders for 300 Be consideriate so too bad!

  63. Bama girl

    Yep….that is too much to pay for some J’s or any other kind of shoes. You’ll need to makin $500 a day to keep up with NIKE!!! However, being an ASU (Alabama State State) student I must say the colors are FIRE!!!! I’M LOVIN’ IT, but I love my mone much more.

  64. ncborn&breed

    yo jordan is realy trippin the shoes are nice but not 4 $500 u could pay yo rent 4 a month in a half down here in nc that man tryin to make everybody go broke and i aint having it

  65. MAGICFINGAZ

    MY BILLS AND RENT IS CHEAPER THAN THAT. AND I HAVE A SON THAT CAN BENEFIT OFF OF 500$. DON’T NOBODY W ANNA SPEND 500$ TO LOOK LIKE NO DAMN BEE.

  66. chino

    damn, these kickz are fire but DAMN way to expensive to buy. only ppl buyin these will be celebrities haha cuz no normal income person is gonna spend that much money for a pair of shoes. OHH well, ill just wait for the military bluez lol

  67. will

    im a hard core jordan collector but there is no way that i am payin 5 bills for a pair of ugly retros. i could go on ebay and find somebody with some OG IV’s. thats wat i would spend 500 on may be even more.(only if really rare).

  68. chrisGO

    if someone around here actually wores either of these out….they would straight up get snuffed for them. Once all the fakes/variants of these come out, we should all get those! I honestly hate fakes/variants, but think how big a message that would be to Jordan Brand- now thats making a statement.

  69. AsiAn_PimP

    THOSE SHOES ARE HELLA TIGHT BUT THEY COST SO DAME MUCH!!!!!…YEAH THAT JACKET IS HOT!!!! I LIKE THAT JACKET BUT WHO THE HELL WANTS TO BUY THE LIGHTING ONE THOSE ARE HELLA UGLY

  70. will

    Boycott these but not sure about the rest it some nice colors comin up.i dont really think i’ll miss those. Hate me but sorry.

  71. OLDJUMPMAN33

    GUYS, I HAVE A NEWSFLASH… AFTER HAVING BEEN IN NIKETALK.COM. FOUND OUT SOME INTERESTING STUFF… IT IS SAID THAT BRAND JORDAN IS TESTING THESE PACKAGES TO SEE IF THEY SELLOUT, AND WHEN THEY DO, BE PREPARED TO PAY AT LEAST $1000.00 FOR UPCOMING RETRO JORDANS(PERHAPS IN PACKAGES)IN YOUR FAVORITE COLORWAY!!!
    FOR EXAMPLE.I SAW IN NIKETALK.COM SOME PICS OF INFRARED RETRO 6’S, WHITE AND RED RETRO 3’S, WHITE AND BLACK RETRO 11’S(PERHAPS 3 SHOES IN THE DMP 2), AND BLACK RETRO 5’S. SO, IF BRAND JORDAN SEES THESE PACKAGES SEELOUT ON WED., THEY WILL LEARN THAT WE AS CONSUMERS, WILL GO TO ANY LENGTHS TO BUY ANY LOW QUALITY HIGH PRICED J’S THEY PUT OUT THERE. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!!! AFTER THESE SEELOUT, YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE IN STORED FOR THE NEAR FUTURE…!

    OH HELL NO!!! BY THEN, I GUESS I’LL HAVE 2 WALK AWAY FROM JORDANS, IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTED. JB, YOU’RE GETTING TOO GREEDY. GREED WILL LOSE ALL YOUR LOYAL BUYERS.

  73. DaVon Sullivan

    Neither of them shoes. Worth over 120. The tour yellow 4’s is ass. And the other 1’s is straight. But for 500 dollars. they can kick rocks

  74. Koofie Smacker

    OLDJUMPMAN33 GOOD LOOKIN ON THAT INFO SO NIKE & JB JUST USING US AS GUINEA PIGS FOR THEIR PRODUCTS MAN THAEY THINK WE SOME STRAIGHT UP SUCKAS! NIKE YALL GOING GET JERKED WHEN ALL THEM VARIANTS OF THESE SHOES COME OUT IF THEY NOT OUT ALREADY HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA THE BOOTLEGGERS GOING GET THE LAST LAUGH STOP BEING GREEDY!!!

  75. SexyBlack

    I was planning for a month to get the Thunder Jordan in the stores, the 23isback.com says they are not coming out… those shoes are so clean and different…those colors are so right together… but $500…NO WAY!!
    I have to say it was a bad desicion to not put them in stores!

  76. Fresh

    @ first when I received the email from the jumpman website, I was excited and caught up in the hype. I found myself trying to calculate how I was gonna afford the new kicks. Than I realized that this was stupid. I slept in line since 2am and paid 150 for my limited V’s, and dats more reasonable than paying 500 for an ugly pair of J’s. Its not worth it. Not to mention I already have 3 pairs of 4’s including the limited tour 4’s. Which are the same damn colors as the lightning and thunder package except they look a lot better. I rather rock those anyday over this new package. I don’t think anyone should buy these. If we give in now, who knows how much were gonna have to pay for J’s in the future. These kicks aren’t worth the money we should all take a stand now…

  77. philbil

    hmm… 4’s =$125 so shirt must =$125?
    at the same time this must mean the jacket alone is $375. on top of that, the shirt and the jacket look like theyre regular material so they shouldnt cost more than regular shirt and jacket price. I was gonna get the yellow ones but after seeing the price i’d rather get the militaries.

  78. Jordan brand pushed it too far this time. Unfortunately, if those #s are correct, expect to see more packages like this in the future. There are enough people out there with a lot of $ that will make these packages sell out. 500 and 1000 is not a whole lot when you factor in the # of hypebeasts/Jordan heads worldwide.

  79. 23fan4life

    DON’T YOU ALL THINK THAT IF JORDAN BRAND WAS GOING TO SELL THE $500 PACKAGE FOR THAT MUCH, THE JACKET SHOULD HAVE BEEN LEATHER OR SOMETHING. AND THE $250 PACKAGE SHOULD HAVE INCLUDED A CAP OR SOCKS OR SOMETHING. JB, WHY ARE U TRYING TO RIPP US OFF???
    YOUR PACKAGES ARE A JOKE, REALLY!!!

    YOUR PACKAGES ARE A JOKE, REALLY!!! I AM TELLING Y’ALL, THIS PACKAGE IS A TEST. $1000.00 STUFF IS COMING SOON.

  81. J walker

    Damnnnnn! these are clean but to much foreal i agree with #115 it had should had come with more i think who ever copped these are getting ripped off.Don’t copped these tommrow wait for the other jayz like the 5s and 3s they not like the dmp.Boycott.J Walker.

  82. OLDJUMPMAN33

    WHEN THESE SELL OUT, THEN BRAND JORDAN WOULD’VE WON, AND THEN EVERY JORDAN SHOES WE WILL WANT IN THE FUTURE, WE WILL HAVE TO BUY WITH A SHIRT, OR A JACKET, OR A CAP, OR SOME SOCKS, OR ANOTHER SHOE(AN UGLY ONE), OR A FLEECE, OR A BELT. YOU GUYS GETTIN’THIS…???? YOU JUST WAIT… I HOPE THAT I AM WRONG!

  83. Ju

    Alot of us wear these shoes. This is ridiculous,but the shoes are ugly. Please nike/brand jordan dont jack the prices on all the retro’s. The fakes look better and better every day! We’ve been loyal for years. Some of these next releases will be the second and third times I’ve bought these shoes. Still loyal but…

  84. ricco

    Man, i thought price gouging was illeagal in america. Only reason that nikes selling their shoes so pricey is because the bastard J’s are selling so well and nike wants to “milk” peolple for twice as much for the authentic ones.

    Oh yeah, And dont nobody want that tacky ash jacket!

  85. nice

    nike cant be serious they only chargin so much cause we’ll pay it but they’ll act right if ‘NOBODY BUY JORDANS’ so lets stick to the fakes. Holla!

  86. mac

    slim you probably got fakes patna, and biff not everyone is a stunna like you 500 hunn is a grip for shoes and a jacket reppin the south east sd

  87. PEGGY

    WELL, THATS NICE, INSTEAD OF PEOPLE MAKING MONEY, NIKE MAKES IT..NIKE JUMPED ON THIS, TO MAKE MORE MONEY..WHAT DO THEY CARE WHAT PEOPLE DO, AS LONG AS THEY ARE GETTING WHAT THEY WANT..THATS GREED AS FAR AS JORDON’S ARE CONCERNED.WELL, PEOPLE ARE MAKING A PROFIT, WELL SO YOU DOUBLED IT, SO YOU COULD MAKE MORE.WHY NOT BOYCOTT..THE RICH ARE GETTING RICHER.

  88. Julian Cowley

    Sick shoes dont even undetstand how jumpman23.com works. Terrible site and the prices are terrible.
    Shame on JB for those terrible prices when they have much hotter releases coming out in the future for a much better price.

    They better not end up putting future releases on Jumpman23.com or all hell wil break loose!!!!!!!!!

  89. Jay

    I don’t see anything folks… In the AM Niketown told me they changed the date… In PM, they’re back to saying they dunno…

    What’s really going on… is it a got dang lottery?

  90. unknown23fan

    I’m pretty sure I got the yellow bundle…I got a reciept and a conf #. I was checked out right before 4..The only reason I say think? is my other computer has been in the waiting room and counting forever and the timer dosn’t seem to end for a couple hours?

  91. Badass0304868

    im on jumpman23.com and from looking at the inventory they still have a lot left. So what does that tell you. They clean if they would have told us about the prices ahead time I would have bought the Black Thunder bundle. You got to look at it both colors are sick. This might be the last time they bring them out again. Im a collector if any of JB shoes come out if they be ugly or not I will buy them because the shoe it self is a work of art and it is history behind them

  92. david R

    You know everyone is getting pissed off that people are buyin fakes…. but u know the only reason of these action are because of the high pricing of jordans and other shoes such as these 4s 250&500 shhh u know im stayin on fakes.ill only be loyal is NIKE will be loyal to there customers n the sneakerheads..SO IM FOR THE BOYCOTT 100%

  93. Tomeka

    Hate to spill it, fresh off the press but yall Thunder Bundle is all sold out on http://www.Jumpman23.com. Wow, I guess 500 Jordan heads in the US don’t mind paying $500 for the Black/Yellow 4’s with a matching jacket. Coming soon on Ebay and other resellers be on the lookout to see what they gonna want for it. Lightning Bundle is still available men’s sizes 7 through 14.

  94. Jay

    I copped. Now I gotta figure how to get a second pair… I got plenty of Carolina V’s if peeps still looking… 10,11,12.

  95. Jay

    i got two yellows… IMHO the black style has been rocked HARD already… the fakes versions are OLD. I hope to make enuff on #2 to keep #1, or else…

    peace ya’ll I’m out, love the site..

  96. Jay

    nah… once foks realized you could cop multiple pair (4 here), it probalbly turned into a troth for “powersellers”.. feel me?

    …just capitalism folks, it’s not a bad move for JB. Some of these funds go to charity too… I jsut wanted my pair for free, I won’t maul my buyers.

  97. Brandon Harriford

    $500 for a pair of shoes and a jacket is outrageous… even worse is paying $250 for a $115 shoe and a $40 shirt. Jordan Brand could be on the verge of losing some of its most loyal customers. I for one get 95% of the J’s (not team J’s) that come out, but I just cant pull the trigger on this one. Im sorry, but there are people out there like myself that have set amount of money they make per month, and this will just kill their pockets. When people cater to these prices they are simply telling Nike and JB that it is ok to keep driving the prices farther and farther up. Next thing you know the true fans and people who love J’s won’t even be able to show their support. JB you’ve gotta know that the shoes are a little too pricy.

  98. Tomeka

    Get a clue #146, both bundles sold out that day 1,500 people did pay the price and will have their Thunder n Lightning Retro 4’s jacket and t-shirt next week.

  99. OLDJUMPMAN33

    ALL I GOTTA SAY IS, IN NIKETALK.COM, I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT I READ 82 PAGES, 82 PAGES OF PURE HATIN’… HATIN’ ON THE SHOES, ON THE BUYERS FOR THE SHOES, ON THE RE-SELLERS, ETC. GEEZ, EVEN I KNEW THAT’D SELL OUT, BUT I’M NOT HATIN’. SO IT MAKES ME WONDER NOW, HOW MUCH WILL THE NEXT DMP’S GONNA COST? CAN I AFFORD THEM? DO I REALLY NEED THEM BECAUSE I JUST WANT THEM? IT IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF BIGGER THINGS TO COME FROM BRAND JORDAN, WATCH OUT, $1000.00 STUFF IS COMING !!!

  100. 23fan4life

    WHY STOP THERE? WHY NOT $1500.00 STUFF? OR EVEN $2000.00? JB KNOWS NOW THAT WHATEVER THEY PUT OUT, HOWEVER MUCH IT IS, PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO SPEND OUTRAGEOUS $$$ TO COP THEM. BUT HERE’S THE QUESTION…? WHEN THEY SAY IT’S LIMITED, ARE THEY BEING HONEST, ARE TRULY LIMITED ARE THEY… HUH? THINK ABOUT THAT…!

  101. 23fan4life

    COULDN’T TELL YOU, HOTFOOT, THEY COST JUST WHAT THE PACKAGES SAY IT COSTS!!! BUT ON EBAY, I SAW THE LIGHTNINGS GO FOR $600 NOW, AND THE THUNDERS FOR $1000.00 TO $1500.00. STILL THINKING ABOUT COPPIN’ THEM ??? :) :->

  102. Jay

    Well… I have had the pleasure of opening my retro… 1st strike, the smell is not there… So right away, I’m…

    As for the looks and quality? I decided to pull out some heavy hitters for comparison.

    Air Jordan 4 Retro Black/Cement Grey (136013 001)
    Purchased 1999/Semi DS retail:$100
    Air Jordan DUB-ZERO White/Black-Light PhotoBlue (311046 102) Purchased 2005/Super DS retail:$150

    How do you think this $200 retro held up??? I was going to pull out the UNC V’s but c’mon… hehehe…

    still have a 12 UNC V available BTW.

  103. jimmy

    yo wtf man dont challl kno dat kid sizes sell more nd faster den menz nd wtf iz up wit da damn price itz juss shoes nd a jacket

  104. SBWearer

    I meant to say it’s like paying 350,000 for a damn car! Of course it’s outrageous, but people will still buy, just cuz they WANT it. I wish they were less expensive, but you gotta pay their price. There will ALWAYS be at least 10,000 people who will pay those kinda prices for Jordans.

  105. SBWearer

    I wish I could afford a Ferrari, but I cant. I don’t say it’s not fair. I just buy a car that I can afford. Everyone can’t have everything they want, including me. We just gotta live wit it.

  106. misz soto

  113. Some of the things you may find in a herbal sex pill for men are horny goat weed, saw palmetto, xanthoparmelia scabrosa seeds and gingko biloba. These all have different properties, but tend to all enhance sexual performance, improve erections and boost sperm levels. They have been known to improve other parts of the body as well, such as body strength and general health and also improving energy levels and concentrations, making great supplements for us all to use.Some of the other ingredients are relatively new and have shown excellent results. You may have heard of Horny Goat Weed. It is actually Epimedium leaf extract, and it has a number of significant properties that will increase blood flow to the penis and boost libido.
