It has become somewhat of an annual tradition for Jordan Brand to unveil a brand new Air Jordan model every year. Michael Jordan may not be lacing up in Air Jordan sneakers on the court anymore, but Jordan Brand consistently strives to capture the essence of his glory days. Even though Michael Jordan is not playing professional basketball anymore, several different NBA players have rocked Jordan Brand’s previous two signature sneaker models. Introduced last year, Jordan Brand drew inspiration from the Air Jordan 2 for the Air Jordan 32. A year later, it seems that the Air Jordan 32 might be nearing its end, for now at least.
Tate Kuerbis, Nike’s Senior Designer, was the one who designed the Air Jordan 32. In addition to the Air Jordan 2, Tate also drew inspiration Italian sports since Michael Jordan loves them. Coincidentally, the Air Jordan 2 was originally designed in Italy. Overall, the Air Jordan 32 is a modern-looking sneaker, but its ankle collars and tongue patches have undeniably been borrowed from the Air Jordan 2. Like many of the other models from the line, the Air Jordan 32 also has a low-top variation, which recently made its retail debut on June 9th, 2018 at a price of $160 as a part of Jordan Brand’s “Last Shot” Pack.
This latest colorway of the Air Jordan 32 has apparently been dubbed “Finale.” This suggests that Jordan Brand might not drop any more new colorways of it for some time, which is likely because they are planning to unveil the Air Jordan 33 in the coming months. This particular iteration is dressed up in somewhat of a patriotic color scheme of Court Purple, Red, University Blue and White. In addition to the Jordan “Jumpman” and “Wings” logos, the word apparently printed on the inside of each tongue. While there is currently no official release date, this colorway can be expected to be among July’s Air Jordan releases 2018.
