A surprising signature sneaker that Jimmy Butler rocked in his time with the Jumpman was the Air Jordan 18.
The Air Jordan 18 has the unique distinction of being the last sneaker Michael Jordan wore in an NBA game. The AJ18 steered directly into Mike’s love for race cars. The rubber heel wrap was added as a nod to race car driving shoes, while the carbon fiber plate was made to match the material build of Formula 1 cars. The premium touches were also done for accessories, with a suede brush, towel, and “driver’s manual” included with the AJ18. Tech wise, the shoe featured a full-length Zoom Air unit with an additional heel Zoom unit stacked in the heel to help Mike during his last run in the league.
Jimmy Buckets notably wore a Veteran’s Day-themed camo player exclusive in 2017, that isn’t currently available.
