Built to serve intricate footwork, the Air Jordan 38 is designed low to the ground so players can have more court feel during pivots, cuts and defensive slides. The new X-Plate, which is a nod to the straps on the Air Jordan VIII, keeps the foot over the footbed during sharp movements. A radial herringbone traction pattern works with a full-length Zoom Strobel unit and full-length Cushlon 3.0 foam for just the right amount of responsive cushioning. The outrigger helps secure the foot for lateral movements. The X-Plate continues a long line of Jordan-exclusive development in its plate technology, from the Flight Plate to the Eclipse Plate to the IsoPlate. This Light Marine colorway of the Air Jordan 38 pays homage to Jordan’s iconic fadeaway jumper. Done in a Light Marine, Astronomy Blue, Royal Pulse, Flash Crimson, Barely Volta, and Blue Tint color scheme, the upper is covered in different shades of blue, contrasted by the Crimson accents.
