The Air Jordan 18 “Sport Royal” was the last Air Jordan Retro shoe that Michael Jordan would wear in an NBA game. The 40-Year-Old Legend, Michael Jordan played in his final NBA game on April 16, 2003 in Philadelphia. Playing for the Washington Wizards and wearing the Air Jordan 18 (XVIII) in White/Metallic Silver-Sport Royal went to the bench with 4 minutes and 13 seconds remaining in the third quarter giving the fans one last wave expressing his gratitude towards them.
For 2018, Jordan Brand will be bringing back the Air Jordan 18, which was designed by long-time Nike designer Tate Kuerbis back in 2003. Its design was very unique and came with a clean laceless appearance, double stacked Nike Zoom Air, and carbon fiber Comfort Control Plate. Hopefully, the 2018 Retro will come with its iconic towel.
Look for the Air Jordan 18 “Sport Royal” to release in January 2018 at select Jordan Brand retailers. The retail price tag is set at $225 USD.
