Air Jordan 18 “Wizards” Retro Making a Comeback in 2018

Although not the most popular when they first released in 2003 (still a popular opinion in 2017), it looks like the Air Jordan 18 will be getting the first standalone retro in 2018. 

As a member of the Washington Wizards, Michael Jordan wore the Air Jordan 18 in White/Sport Royal for the final NBA game ever of his legendary career on April 16, 2003 against the Philadelphia 76ers. Tate Kuebris, the designer for the 18s, was inspired by the classic Italian dress shoe look and race cars. The Air Jordan 18, equiped with a one piece upper, also comes with a carbon fiber plate, Zoom Air installed in the forefront and a hand-stitched outsole. 

It is unknown whether or not Jordan Brand will include the brush and towel that came in the original release. But what is known is that these will be releasing January of 2018 for a suggested retail price of $225, $50 more than the original pricing. What are your thoughts on the first 18s released since the CDP pack back in 2008?
