The retro release of one of Michael Jordan's go-to silhouettes during his Wizards-era is almost here. Ahead of its official release, there are now more detailed images of the upcoming Air Jordan 18 "Royal."

Thanks to s.sam.group on Instagram, here is a close-up look at this upcoming colorway of the love-hate Jordan signature. Most well known as the shoe worn by MJ in the last game of his career, these new images show details on this pair including its heel air vents and hidden lacing system.

The Air Jordan 18 "Royal" is expected to hit stores in Jan. 2018 for $225.
