One of this year’s most anticipated Air Jordan releases 2018 from Jordan Brand’s Spring lineup was the returning Air Jordan 18 in retro form. The Air Jordan 18 was the last signature model from Jordan Brand that was worn by Michael Jordan on his court, during the brief period after his 2001 return when he played as a member of the Washington Wizards. The first month of this year marked the comeback of the Air Jordan 18 Retro “Sport Royal,” which retailed at a price of $225 on January 22nd, 2018. After fifteen years, the Air Jordan 18 Retro will soon arrive in a brand new “Red Suede” colorway.
In addition to the “White/Sport Royal” iteration, which was made up of full grain leather, Jordan Brand dropped the Air Jordan 18 in two other colorways. These were the “Black/Sport Royal,” which was made up of nubuck suede, and the “White/Varsity Red,” which was made up of full grain leather too. Eventually, Jordan Brand even introduced a low-top rendition of the Air Jordan 18, which arrived in two different colorways. Jordan Brand even released an Air Jordan 18.5 variation, which lacked the lace cover and hit the shelves in seven original colorways. It was even a part of the Air Jordan V & XVIII (5-18) Countdown Pack.
Many of you reading this may remember getting your first look at the Air Jordan 18 “Red Suede” earlier this year, back in January. You may also be aware that the design of the Air Jordan 18 was inspired by Formula 1 race cars and with this particular color scheme; it looks even more race car-like. Its uppers are made up of suede and are covered in a bright Red hue, while Black appears over the branding, heel collars, inner lining, and its translucent midsoles. Its matching lace shield, which can be snapped up, is made up of premium leather and is covered in the same, matching Red hue.
You would not be wrong if you feel like this iteration resembles a Ferrari and you will be able to cop a pair since it is joining this month’s Air Jordan releases 2018. The retail debut of this Air Jordan 18 “Red Suede” is scheduled for April 25th, 2018 and it will be available at a price of $225.
