This was the first Air Jordan XVIII Retro colorway. It was released in 2008 as a part of the Jordan V/XVIII Collezione (Countdown) Package along with an Air Jordan V Retro. This was a new colorway, and to many what should have been an original one. But, in 2003 when the XVIII debuted, MJ was with the Wizards organization so colorways were themed around that. These came with the brush just like the original black/royal colorway did and they were only available in the Jordan V/XVIII CDP.
