There was a time when a pair of Air Jordans would get folks all excited about what basic leather color pattern was going to be released next. After all, Jordans put the solid basketball hightop back on the map. However, if one compared what is coming out now versus those early shoes, it would be like comparing a caveman’s sandle to an anstronaut’s boot.
The latest Jordan Brand release will come out in October 2018 with a baby blue sold hue, while the alternative option will be the distinct Chicago Bulls red. The eyelets, however, will stand out with a metallic finish in gold, and the shoe detailing will be offset by very thin streaks of black along the top of shoe and ankle rim.
No surprise, the latest Jordans are either going to revolutionize how basketball shoes are supposed to look, or they will end up becoming their own fashion icon completely off the court without every having been near a bouncing basketball. More than likely, both events will occur just to turn everything upside down. And given the popularity these shoes are going to generate, it’s likely they are not going to ever be found in the discount bin for many years to come. Of course, there’s also the Michael Jordan fan club as well; all those Generation X fans going into a midlife crisis will want a pair too. So it would be a good idea to order ahead to avoid the crunch.
