Unveiling a marriage of past inspiration and future innovation, the Air Jordan 38 "Aqua" is poised to redefine what it means to be a classic. First teased during UCLA’s high-stakes March Madness games and later spotlighted by five-star point guard Kiyomi McMiller, this next chapter in the Air Jordan series pays homage to its roots while pushing the boundaries of performance and design.
At first glance, you'll notice the jet-black embroidered upper that serves as a canvas for the shoe's more colorful details. One standout element from its iconic predecessor is the chenille tongue tab, which stays true to the OG design. But that's just the tip of the iceberg; Golden Yellow accents bring warmth to the inner lining and semi-translucent outsole, giving the shoe a pop of vibrancy, while saturated midsoles give the pair more reminiscent flair.
But it's not entirely nostalgic, as this underfoot technology harmonizes it's retro inspiration with the high-performance Zoom Strobel and Cushion 3.0 cushioning.
Striking the perfect balance between nostalgia and progress, the Air Jordan 38 "Aqua" becomes more than just a sneaker—it's a testament to the enduring allure of the Jordan Brand legacy.
The shoe will make its grand entrance at select Jordan Brand retailers listed in our 'Buy Now' drop-down menu — and on Nike.com — on December 7th, 2023.
