Overseas leakers have spotted a shoe that looks like an evolution of the Air Jordan 32, so could this be the Air Jordan 33?
Of course, these shoes could be a scrapped sample or some other shoe Jordan Brand is cooking up, but there are some similarities to the Air Jordan signature line that cannot be ignored.
First off, the Flyknit upper is very similar to the upper of the Air Jordan 32, as is the structure of the tongue. Second, the outsole shape midsole cushioning point at a new tech development.
That cushioning appears to be two very large volume Zoom Air units, one at the forefoot and one at the heel, and they may be connected via a tendril that runs between them. Of course, the units could be separate and the tendril is just there for better transition. We haven’t seen visible Zoom Air like this in a Jordan model since the Melo M10 — awesome shoe by the way.
If this shoe is the Air Jordan 33, which is unlikely, it lacks any overt nods to the Air Jordan 3. The Air Jordan 31 and Air Jordan 32 were inspired by the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 2, respectively, and made obvious references to both originals. Moreover, the straps that secure the heel and forefoot would seem more at home on a LeBron shoe.
Leaker @soleheatonfeet says the Air Jordan 33 should release in October of 2018, right in time for the next NBA season. Additionally, the leaker said that the Air Jordan 33 would carry a $175 price tag, down $10 from last year’s Air Jordan 32.
For now, all we can do is speculate so share what you think in the comments below.
