When it comes to Jordan Brand and their prestigious history of colorways and story telling, the ‘Last Shot’ theme is up there in the ranks. Made famous by the shot MJ hit in game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz that propelled his Bulls to another championship victory. The Black and Red colorway that was featured on the Jordan XIV that Jordan was wearing when he nailed that jump shot is now taking over the Air Jordan XXXII Low. To further that homage, the Jumpman is taking the signature midfoot decal of the 14 and putting it on the tongue of the Air Jordan XXXII Low in yellow. Keeping that honorary trend going, is a date on the inside of that tongue that pays tribute to that date the Bulls won their sixth ring. This Air Jordan 32 features the Ferrari-style Jumpman branding on the tongue, textured leather on the heels featuring the wings logo, and red Jumpman branding on the midsole to top it all off.

When it comes to Jordan Brand and their prestigious history of colorways and story telling, the ‘Black Cat’ theme is up there in the ranks. If you don’t already know, the color scheme name stems from a childhood nickname MJ had. When Tinker Hatfield was designing the Air Jordan 13, he brought the ‘Black Cat’ idea into the limelight, telling Jordan that the way he moved reminded him of a giant predatory cat. Since then, the blacked out colorway has become popular in the brand’s legacy series, dressing up the Air Jordan 3, Air Jordan 6, and Air Jordan 13. Now the Air Jordan 32 will join the ranks, and further celebrate Jordan’s winning ways. On the back of its spine, six iridescent circles take center stage with each year that MJ lead to Bulls to an NBA Championship inside. ‘Black Cat’ can be found on the inside of both tongues to further this somewhat forgotten part of Jordan Brand lure.
This Air Jordan XXXII comes dressed in the classic ‘Black Cat’ theme. It features a smooth Black upper with iridescent detailing on its Wings logo and Jumpman logo on the midsole. An icy translucent sole unit completes the story and sneaker in the cleanest way possible. If you’re a true MJ diehard, then you’re going to want to add this to your collection.

It’s no secret that Jordan Brand takes care of the schools they sponsor and keep outfitted in the best of the best. We’ve seen some of the cleanest PE’s hit the court in recent years and sneakerheads have gone crazy to get their hands on a pair. Now, just in time for March Madness JB is giving fans of two of the most popular universities in sports the chance to lace up kicks that would at one time only be meant for the players. Fans of the Michigan Wolverines and North Carolina Tar-heels can now rock the same shoes that their favorite players have been wearing.
For Wolverines fans, JB is dropping a dope Jordan XXXII Low in a Navy Blue and Maize. This Air Jordan XXXII Low includes a Grey marbleized midsole that sits atop a Yellow rubber outsole. On the inside of its tongue, this special selection boasts a graphic that emulates a net being cut down – Nike and Jordan Brand’s official logo for all of their March Madness sneakers, as well as a nod to the team’s 1989 National Championship victory over Seton Hall.
Tar-heel fans and Jordan lovers alike know the legacy that comes with the university. UNC is one of the true “Blue Chip” college basketball programs in the country and one of the most successful ones at that. Coming off their sixth National Championship in program history, JB is creating another celebratory Air Jordan XXXII in honor of all of their titles which are represented by six ring decals on the spine of the sneaker. Dressed up with a premium overlay, this pair features more of a luxe aesthetic than most other versions of this same silhouette that tend to boast synthetic textiles. While its upper is almost entirely outfitted in Carolina Blue, it sits atop a grey marbled midsole that matches its Wings logo on its tongue. J. Cole said “Carolina Blue kicks, fresh on the scene” and now you can live this when you step out wearing your pair.

Jordan Brand is honoring MJ and his historic appearance in the 1988 NBA Dunk Contest in which he took off from the free throw line. That historic moment will go down in basketball history as one of the most legendary moments that the game will ever see. Players had been dunking for years but when Mike took off from the free throw line and did his infamous pose in the air as he reached out to the rim, it became cemented in history as one of the best. Paying tribute to the Air Jordan 3 ‘White Cement’ that he wore, a subtle elephant print design is featured on the upper. In addition to the red stripe and the 3:51 markings on the soles, the Air Jordan XXXII Low “Dunk Contest” features an embroidered patch on the inside of the tongue that features the number 10 fives times, noting the perfect score he received from his “walk-off” free-throw line slam.
Make sure you honor his Airness when you grab your pair of the Air Jordan XXXII Low ‘Dunk Contest’ on February 14th at Finishline.com.
Before Jordan Brand brings back one of the most coveted sneakers in history in February, they’re dropping a “Black Cement” inspired Air Jordan XXXII. Inspired by the famed ‘Black Cement’ colorway of the Air Jordan 3, the shoe that Jordan wore three decades ago, this XXXII release features a subtle detail of elephant print on the heel while utilizing a heather grey Flyknit upper to achieve that wild animal-like print look. Like the Air Jordan XXXI, the Air Jordan XXXII is designed after the model that came thirty years before it.
Paying tribute to MJs first MVP season, this pair comes dressed in a black, university red, white and cement color scheme. A closer look at the tongues reveal an MVP label, which honors the first of his four awards that came after the ’87-’88 season.

What started as an endorsement between Gatorade and Michael Jordan back in 1991 has grown into a movement over the years. Back when kids would hit the court and practice the classic Jordan fadeaway or the free-throw line leap to feel like his Airness, they all wanted to “Be Like Mike”. From a campaign slogan for commercials to a self-inspired mission to spend hours on the court in hopes of becoming MJ one day, the partnership between the two inspired generations of kids to grab their Jordans, basketball and gatorade bottle and live on the court.
It’s been 26 years since their partnership began but the motivation and that was influenced through the messages still lives on. The influence that MJ had on kids back then is unmatched by anything these days. There was no stronger endorsement for Gatorade than it being the drink that gave MJ that extra push during games and him having the extra energy to make the jaw-dropping plays that are still imprinted in our brains.
Now, Jordan Brand is honoring this monumental moment in Jordan’s career as they always do with a special collection of footwear and apparel. The clean look of the Gatorade logo combined with the “Be Like Mike” sayings and retro styling makes the apparel a must have if you’re a JB lover. Clean hoodies, socks and hats bring this collection full circle as they have you covered with everything you could need. Let your nostalgia run wild as the pieces take you back to when you would see the commercials and marketing. The classic look of him holding his Gatorade bottle during a moment on the bench during a game as the sweat runs down his head comes to life on the classic short-sleeve t-shirt.
It’s not a JB collection until the footwear sets it off. Like they always do, they portray the story through a colorway and that is just what they do on the Air Jordan Retro 6 ‘Gatorade’. Donning predominately white uppers, the colorway is brought together with orange accents throughout the upper on the Retro 6. For that true Gatorade feel, the Jumpman logos on the shoes pop with green and the sleeper detail is on the inside. The inside tongue of the retro features “If I Could Be..” from the commercials and the soles of the shoes feature the classic Gatorade bolt.
The Air Jordan x Gatorade apparel collection is available now and the Air Jordan Retro 6 ‘Gatorade’ will be available on December 16th at Finishline.com.
Jordan Brand pays tribute to Russell Westbrook’s “Why Not?” slogan with a clean pair of the Air Jordan XXXII ‘Why Not’ that is just in time for basketball season and the holidays. Russ just turned 29 on Sunday, and it’s crazy to think of all that he’s done in the NBA already. JB is blessing Thunder fans with perhaps an even more attractive version than the pair Russ wore on media day with a blue and orange team-based colorway dubbed the Air Jordan XXXII ‘Why Not’.
Dressed in the OKC Thunder team colors, this may be one of the best PE style versions of this sneaker. This Air Jordan XXXII features a full blue-based upper paired with contrasting orange accents. Russell’s ‘Why Not?’ is seen on the inner tongues, insoles and translucent outsoles. The detail that JB went into with this pair and the story behind it makes them even better. You’ll be playing like Westbrook when you hit the court in these XXXII’s.
