The Air Jordan 38 is specifically designed to enhance a player’s footwork on the basketball court. Its low-to-the-ground design provides better court feel, allowing for precise pivots, cuts, and defensive slides. Inspired by the straps found on the Air Jordan VIII, the new X-Plate feature ensures that your foot stays secure and properly aligned during quick and sharp movements. The shoe features a radial herringbone traction pattern, which collaborates with a full-length Zoom Strobel unit and full-length Cushlon 3.0 foam to deliver responsive cushioning that strikes the perfect balance. Additionally, the outrigger feature ensures that the foot remains secure during lateral movements for enhanced stability. The X-Plate builds upon a rich tradition of exclusive Jordan innovations in plate technology. It follows the footsteps of previous advancements such as the Flight Plate, Eclipse Plate, and IsoPlate.
The Air Jordan 38 in the Light Marine colorway is a tribute to Michael Jordan’s famous fadeaway jumper. It features a combination of Light Marine, Astronomy Blue, Royal Pulse, Flash Crimson, Barely Volta, and Blue Tint colors. The upper is adorned with varying shades of blue, creating a striking contrast with the Crimson accents.
The Air Jordan 38 Light Marine will be available for purchase on October 17th at select retailers and Nike.com. The retail price for this shoe is $200.
