It has been reported that the new Jordan 32 is set for a January 2018 release despite the identity of the sneaker being kept seemingly under wraps.

Reigning NBA MVP and flagship Jordan athlete Russell Westbrook has tested the sneaker. The explosive Oklahoma City Thunder guard did let the world know he is testing the new signature shoe.

Westbrook is making sure that the Air Jordan 32 will fit his playing style on court.

According to sneakerfiles.com the Air Jordan XXX2 appears to first release during January 2018, however it’s possible we will see a few colorways release during 2017. Retail price will be $180. Rumor has it that the Jordan XXXII will be unveiled around the same time as the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit releases which is in September.

It is reported that the first colourway of the new Jordan sneaker will be platinum.

Westbrook famously rocked the previous Jordan XXXI model last season and even had the sole of the shoe altered a quarter of the way through the campaign.

Westbrook averaged a triple-double of 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists and capped off his MVP season with the most infamous colourway: the Jordan 31 “Why Not”.
