Jordan Brand unveils new Air Jordan XXXII signature sneaker

TURIN, Italy — Nike’s Jordan Brand unveiled the latest model of the Air Jordan sneaker, the Air Jordan XXXII, at a special event in Italy, harkening back to the company’s deep roots in the industry. The sneaker will be released on Sept. 23 and retail for $185, the same price as last year’s edition.

The newest addition to the Jordan line takes heavy inspiration from the original Air Jordan II of 31 years ago, which was manufactured in Italy for its initial 1986 release. After the breakout success of the inaugural Air Jordan sneaker upon Michael Jordan’s entrance into the NBA, his second signature shoe pushed the envelope for a basketball sneaker at the time. Crafted in Italy with rich leathers and unique faux iguana-textured paneling, the Air Jordan II originally retailed for $105, a steep increase over the Asia-made Air Jordan I’s price tag of $65.
