The Air Jordan 18 Black/Royal was an event for anyone old enough to be into sneakers when they released in 2003.
Worn by Michael Jordan during his final season in the NBA with the Washington Wizards, the AJ18 was as smooth and rich as Money himself. Styled in suede — only the black pair — a brush came with each set of shoes to keep them crispy clean after battle.
While the OG White/Royal returned earlier this year in small doses to but to fast sales, we’re finally getting a Black/Blue retro for the first time ever this month.
Update 10/4: Jordan Brand reveals official images of the Air Jordan 18 Black/Royal scheduled to release on October 25. The shoe is back to help close the silhouette’s 15th-anniversary celebration.
