Earlier this year, the Air Jordan 18 made its long-awaited comeback. Its original “Hyper Royal” colorway joined January’s Air Jordan releases 2018 and a “Red Suede” colorway of the model made its retail debut on April 7th. However, the Air Jordan 18 is not stopping there. Another original Air Jordan 18 colorway, the “Sport Royal” is also returning this year. Jordan Brand originally dropped it back in 2003. Introduced along the same time as the “Hyper Royal” colorway, its uppers are made up of suede and are mostly covered in Black, with Sport Royal appearing over the carbon fiber midsoles and the inner lining.
Back in June, a brand new colorway of the Air Jordan 18 also popped up. As of now, it is being referred to as the “Cool Grey” iteration because of its obvious, nearly tonal appearance. The Air Jordan 18 happens to be one of the most luxurious models from the line. Hence, it makes sense that this particular iteration of the model has uppers made up of suede and are dressed up almost entirely in Cool Grey. Its glossy carbon fiber midsoles have a charcoal appearance and further adding to its premium aesthetic, the lace loop over its shroud seems to have a metallic finish over it.
Two other similar-looking colorways of the Air Jordan 18 have also surfaced. From the looks of it, both of these iterations also have uppers that are made up of suede. Both also happen to be nearly tonal, so their uppers are almost entirely covered in a bright Orange and a Yellow hue, respectively. Their tongues also appear to feature some special “86V” branding, while the usual “Jumpman” logo can also be spotted on the toes. Additionally, both of these iterations are also equipped with plain White carbon fiber midsoles and milky, somewhat semi-translucent outsoles.
As of now, it is being reported that the Air Jordan 18 “Sport Royal” will make its comeback on October 25th, 2018. The “Cool Grey” and the other two colorways will also be joining the Air Jordan releases 2018 in the coming months and will likely retail at a price of $225.
