Release Date: January 2018
The Air Jordan 18 hasn’t been seen since its debut in 2003, but it appears that the silhouette will be getting the retro treatment in 2018.
Michael Jordan wore the Air Jordan 18 in White/Sport Royal for his final NBA game ever on April 16, 2003. He was a member of the Washington Wizards and was playing against the Philadelphia 76ers. Tate Kuerbis designed the shoe influenced by outstanding Italian dress shoes, and race cars. Equipped with a one piece upper, the Air Jordan 18 also comes with a carbon fiber plate, Zoom Air installed in the forefront and a hand-stitched outsole. The very same pair that MJ wore in his final game is expected to receive the retro treatment in 2018 which comes covered in a white leather upper with sport royal detailing on the inner liner, midsole, and outsole.
At the moment the Air Jordan 18 Sport Royal is scheduled to release on January of 2018 for a retail price of $225. Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates.
