The Air Jordan 32, available in mid-cut and low-top versions, comes equipped with a Nike FlyKnit upper that’s supposedly more flexible than that of its predecessors. Made of high-tenacity yarn, the 32 boosts greater stretch, improved support, and better zonal lockdown on the foot.

On its midsole, find a tuned-up Flight Speed Technology that unleashes the full energy of its Zoom Air units. The shoe also comes with a new herringbone traction pattern which delivers multi-directional grip on the court.

“With Jordan shoes, we obsess the style in a way that puts many of the performance elements under the hood, so to speak,” said 32’s designer Tate Kuerbis in a statement. “For example, I wanted to make the laces just disappear into the knit structure, but inside there is a whole harness system with webbing that really locks down your foot.”

According to Nike, three sneaker models will be scheduled for release. The all-red “Rossa Corsa” colorway will hit stores first on September 23. This high-top silhouette includes suede detailing and the word “Bellissimo” inside the tongue tab.

The Air Jordan 32 “Bred” Mid and Low silhouettes will be released last on October 18. Popularly known as “MJ Day”, it marks the anniversary of Michael Jordan receiving his “Banned” letter from the NBA.

The Mid model features a black midsole and a translucent light blue outsole, while the Low comes with a white midsole and red outsole.
