This time he walked away for good. After two seasons in Washington, Michael Jordan's legendary playing career is a wrap. Honored with a tribute ceremony featuring Mariah Carey at his final All-Star Game and officially plays his last game in Philadelphia on April 16.
Michael's last stand was made in the Tate Kuerbis designed Air Jordan XVIII, inspired by the Lamborghini Murcielago. The XVIII features a one-piece upper, carbon fiber control plate incorporated into the insole, a hand-stitched outsole inspired by Italian dress shoes, dual-layer heel and forefoot Zoom Air. Shoes were released in a pull-out box with an "18" cut-out on the lid. Accessories included a suede brush, cleaning towel and owner's manual.
For the XX8 Days of Flight, Jordan Brand presents the XVIII in black tumbled leather with neon green hits on the inner lining and outsole.
