The Jordan Brand Classic is one of America’s leading prep basketball events, known for showcasing some of the country’s top high school basketball talent. Like every year, the 2018 Jordan Brand Classic took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on April 8th, 2018. In addition to acknowledge a new generation of players that could be future basketball legends, Player Exclusive iterations of Air Jordan models are also known to make an appearance on the court. This year, no special Air Jordan releases 2018 hit the shelves in celebration of the event, but Jordan Brand did whip up a PE for the players.
In case you do not know, the Jordan Brand Classic is a double-header All-Star Game between men’s and women’s Home and Away teams consisting of high school basketball players. On March 8th, this roster for the 2018 Jordan Brand National Boys team was revealed. Back in 2014, the players who participated in the Jordan Brand Classic that year received a special Jordan Future pair. Additionally, a Jordan Brand Classic Collection was also released, which included two New York City-inspired colorways of the Jordan Melo M10, along with match apparel and even a basketball. One of those iterations was also worn by the Jordan Brand Classic players during the game.
26 of the leading basketball prospects from high schools across the United States headlined the 2018 Jordan Brand Classic at the Barclays Center and they were all laced up in the Air Jordan 10 seen here. In case you feel this PE colorway looks familiar, it is probably because it somewhat resembles the Air Jordan 10 “Cool Grey” that Jordan Brand dropped back in 2014. Some differences include the fact that its entire uppers are covered in splatter, its heel tabs feature “JBC” branding, and a Red hue makes an appearance on the inside of the tongues and the outsoles.
2014’s Jordan Brand Classic Collection ended up arriving at very select retailers on April 18th that year. Hence, there might be a slight possibility that some special Jordan Brand Classic-themed Air Jordan releases 2018 might arrive later this month.
