As the Paris Olympics nears, Jordan Brand preps for the major occasion with a special edition of the Air Jordan 38 Low. Arriving in a “Torch” colorway, the shoe’s design is inspired by the Olympic torch, all while fusing Parisian style to the shoe that represents the highest form of athleticism.
The shoe arrives in a cement grey, hyper crimson, particle beige and cool grey palette. Paying homage to the Summer Olympics torch, the shoes features distinctive nods to the symbol. Constructed in a mixture of nubuck, textile and neoprene, the shoe has a minimalist design featuring crimson highlights on the tongue tag on the right shoe and its laces. The left shoe adorns the Olympic torch graphic on the tongue. Embroidered details are seen throughout the heel of the shoe while also displaying a flame-like motif on the grey upper. The shoe sits atop cement grey midsoles with crimson TPU reinforcements as well as X-Plate technology underlying the rubber outsoles.
Look out for the Air Jordan 38 Low “Torch” arriving in select retailers and online at Nike for $185 USD later this year.
