Jordan Brand officially unveiled the Air Jordan 32 by the end of August last year. Much like how the Air Jordan 31 drew inspiration from the Air Jordan 1, the Air Jordan 32 was inspired by the Air Jordan 2, but with innovative, modern day basketball footwear technology incorporated into it. The Air Jordan 32 eventually made its retail debut in a “Rosso Corsa” colorway on September 23rd, 2017 at a price of $185. The sneaker model you see above and below could quite potentially be the Air Jordan 33, and Jordan Brand has apparently hinted that it might get officially unveiled near the end of this month.
September 20 may end up being the date on which the Air Jordan 33 will be officially unveiled and its release details could potentially be revealed too. This date was a part of the tweet that was recently posted on Jordan Brand’s official Twitter account (@Jumpman23). The tweet reads “Locked down.#PrepareToFly 09.20.18.” Also accompanying this text was the photo you see above, which depicts an elastic band with a tab featuring “PULL” and a ribbon tag on the left that has “PULL TO LOCKDOWN” printed over it. As of now, it is uncertain what this photo signifies, apart from potentially being related to the Air Jordan 33.
Apart from the image that Jordan Brand tweeted, the other two photos were leaked on Hupu.com, a Chinese sports website, by someone with the username @wants002. For now, there is no way of knowing whether this sneaker is actually the Air Jordan 33, but it is certainly intriguing. It appears to have Flyknit uppers and tongues similar to those of the Air Jordan 33. The design of the soles is unique and two huge, visible Zoom Air units can be spotted, perhaps inspired by the Jordan Melo M10. Two different iterations have been designed, each sporting a Black and White and a Red and White color scheme, respectively.
Considering though that the sneaker in these leaked photos does not seem to draw inspiration from the Air Jordan 33, it may actually end up being one of the other upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018. As for what ends up happening on September 20th, keep checking back to SneakersDog to find out.
