Air Jordan 38

The Air Jordan 38 is the 38th sneaker in Michael Jordan’s signature line, first officially unveiled to the public in July 2023. The Air Jordan 8, revealed 30 years prior, influences the 38’s construction in indirect fashion. The X-Plate technology in the sole, intended to facilitate mobility and quick cuts, is inspired by the straps of the AJ8.

Among other major highlights on the silhouette, it features heavy allusions to Mike’s playing career, like with the 41 cross stitches on the collar mirroring his 41 PPG average during the finals.

The XXXVIII will continue to roll out in new colorways throughout 2024, right up until the debut of the Air Jordan 39 in June. Check out our latest coverage of Mike’s newest shoe below, including release dates, new colorways and direct purchase links.
