The 13 Air Jordans That Came Out Since Michael Jordan’s Retirement

Michael Jordan stepped off the court for the final time on April 16, 2003, but his signature sneakers continue to hit the hardwood.

As a member of the Washington Wizards, the second team Jordan played for throughout his career, the last shoe the NBA icon wore was the Air Jordan 18. Since his retirement, Jordan Brand has delivered 13 different signature shoes that have been worn by some of the league’s premier players (Ray Allen, Dwyane Wade and Gary Payton are a few of the greats who have laced up Air Jordans).

The latest shoe to see serious minutes on the court is the Air Jordan XXXI, an atypical look that features both Air Jordan and Nike branding, which is worn by superstars Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs.
