Air Jordan 17 Low “Lightning” Set To Return

Michael Jordan wore a lot of different sneakers throughout his career, including the Air Jordan 17 Low. Overall, this is a silhouette that fans have largely forgotten. Mostly, this is due to the fact that Jordan's time with the Washington Wizards was forgettable. Moreover, people tend to gravitate toward the Tinker Hatfield creations of the 90s. That said, the Jordan 17 is still a cool silhouette that has plenty of potential. There have been some unique colorways over the years, as well as some awesome PEs.

Subsequently, it seems like Jordan Brand is looking to bring this sneaker back. It has been 20 years since we last saw the Air Jordan 17 and the Air Jordan 17 Low. Consequently, now seems to be a good time to start thinking about some retros. Although we haven't gotten anything in terms of in-hand or rendered teasers, and @zsneakerheadz seem to have the scoop. In 2024, the Air Jordan 17 Low "Lightning" will return. Below, you can see how this shoe was once worn on the court by MJ himself.

"Lightning" Air Jordan 17 Low

Firstly, this shoe is mostly made with a white upper. Secondly, the midsole is a mix of yellow and black, which is where the "Lightning" moniker ultimately comes from. Additionally, we get some nice black on the cuff of the sneaker. This is actually a sock cuff, which is fairly unique for a Jumpman shoe. Overall, it is a cool shoe that shouldn't be discarded just because it's not an Air Jordan 1. Hopefully, fans come around on this oftentimes forgotten about silhouette.

For now, all that is known about the release of this shoe is that it is supposed to take place in the Spring of next year. However, this has yet to be confirmed by the likes of Jordan Brand. Moreover, the price of this shoe is quite steep at $250 USD. Let us know what you think of this sneaker, in the comments section below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for the latest news and updates from around the sneaker world. We will be sure to bring you the biggest releases from the biggest brands.
