Sneakerheads got their first proper look at the Air Jordan 32 last year on August 25th, 2017. The debut colorway of Jordan Brand’s thirty-second signature model was dubbed “MJ Day.” Much like the Air Jordan 31 drew inspiration from the Air Jordan 1, the Air Jordan 32 also borrowed elements from the Air Jordan 2. The Air Jordan 32 debuted on October 18th, 2017. It was not a coincidence that the Air Jordan 32 Low also made its retail debut on the same day in a “Banned” colorway. As a part of upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018, a new colorway of each model is scheduled to arrive soon.
The Air Jordan 32 colorway is dubbed “Black Cat,” which is one of Michael Jordan’s most popular nicknames. Michael Jordan literally performed like a big, predatory black cat on the court and that is how he ended getting this nickname, which is the reason that previous “Black Cat” colorways have always been nearly all-Black. As can be seen, the textured Flyknit uppers of the sneaker are entirely dressed up in Black, while the “Jumpman” and “Wings” branding both feature an iridescent touch. It is also equipped with icy, translucent outsoles and the six years of Michael Jordan’s championship victories can be spotted on the heels.
The brand new colorway of the Air Jordan 32 Low that Jordan Brand has whipped up is completely the opposite. It is apparently dubbed “Gordon St.” after the street where Michael Jordadn’s home was located in Wilmington, North Carolina, back when he was a child. Along with Flyknit, its uppers also feature some suede and are mostly dressed up in a Light Bone hue along with some Infrared 23-colored accents. Additionally, the street sign of Gordon St. can be spotted on the back of the tongues. Last but not least, it is also equipped with icy, translucent outsoles.
The Air Jordan 32 “Black Cat” is scheduled to make its retail debut on April 7th, 2018 and it will retail for $185. The Air Jordan 32 Low “Gordon St.” will not be among next month’s Air Jordan releases 2018, rather, it will arrive at retailers on May 12th and will be available at a price of $160.
