Following news yesterday that the Air Jordan 18 would be dropping in a brand new "Cool Grey" colorway later this year, today there is more information about another pair of the Wizards era signature model making a return. This time, the Air Jordan 18 is reportedly coming back in the OG "Black/Sport Royal" color scheme from 2002.
This pair is similar to the "Sport Royal" pair that retroed earlier this year, but instead replaces the white leather upper with a black suede. Silver accents are used on the Jumpman and "23" branding seen on the shroud and metallic hardware used for the top eyelets. Additional hits of color to match the former jerseys of the Washington Wizards come in the form of a royal blue sock liner and carbon fiber midsole.
According to @zsneakerheadz on Instagram, the "Black/Sport Royal" Air Jordan 18 is expected to arrive at retailers on Oct. 25. The retail price will likely match up with previous retro releases and be set at $225.
UPDATE (07/24): @sneakerjamz has shared an early look at what's purported to be the 2018 version of the "Black/Sport Royal" Air Jordan 18. While it's still too early to verify the authenticity of this pair, it gives an idea of what to expect from the rumored October release.
