After celebrating the global reach and impact of basketball with a gold-tinted homage to FIBA, the Air Jordan 38 now assumes a clad orange outfit akin to the color-matched WNBA hoodie made popular by the late Kobe Bryant.
Joining the recently revealed Air Jordan 12, the upcoming orange-hued collection pays tribute to the ever-growing women’s game in concert with the upcoming WNBA All-Star game in Las Vegas. As such, the silhouette retains its multi-color star motifs strewn across its insoles while the nubuck toe cap and heel counter introduce a collection of matte brushed stars. The W’s logo makes a clarifying jet-black appearance affixed to the left tongue while the pitch-dark detailing transitions to the heel’s Jumpman insignia. Elsewhere, everything from the embroidered upper and padded tongue to the full-length Zoom Strobel cushioning system underfoot engages in tonal “Brilliant Orange” shades.
The Air Jordan 38 “Center Star” is scheduled to release on September 25th for a retail price of $200. In the meantime enjoy a detailed look at the pair below.
For more on-court toolings from the Beaverton brand, the Nike KD 16 “Aunt Pearl” recently surfaced in first-look imagery.
