7. Air Jordan IV "Lightning"

Originally released: 2006

The yin to the AJIV "Thunder" yang, the Air Jordan IV "Lightning" brought yellow and black to the Air Jordan Retro family long before the Air Jordan V "Tokyo" was even a glimmering of a thought. The Lightning package was cheaper than the Thunder — you got a Warhol-esque tee instead of the hoodie — but the bright yellow kicks were a bit harder to pull off.
