The Air Jordan 18 History

The Air Jordan 18 was originally released to the public back in 2003, designed by Tate Kuerbis. During Michael Jordan’s last NBA game with the Washington Wizards against the Philadelphia 76ers on April 16, 2003, he was wearing the Air Jordan 18 Sport Royal. The overall outlook of the 18 was inspired by the automobile world; MJ adores automobiles.  The rubber heel wrap on the sneaker is inspired from racing car driving shoes. The Carbon fiber-based monocoque is based off of F1 racing cars. It was also inspired by Italian dressing shoes. When the sneaker first released, it came with a special slide out shoe box, towel, brush, and an “Air Jordan 18 Driver’s Manual” pamphlet. The Air Jordan 18 was equipped with the latest sneaker technology at the time. It contains air vents, carbon comfort plate, hidden quick lace system, suede leather uppers, and zoom air soles. There are a few cons about the 18s; they collect a lot of dust, scuffs, and dirt marks since they are suede shoes. They would also make someone who’s playing basketball fall, due to the rubber soles on the sneakers because they collect dust also. The Air Jordan 5 had the same issue. In order to prevent this problem from happening, you would had in play in an indoor gym. The original retail price for the 18s was $175.00, the low versions were $150.00, and the 18.5 versions were $175.00.

Features Of The Shoe

This shoe features an overall of white on the leather upper, along with touches of sport royal located on the inner liner, midsole, and outsole. It comes with carbon fiber plates, zoom air located in the forefront of the shoe, and hand-stitched outsoles.
