This colourway of the Grade School AJ38s draws inspiration from the iconic MJ '93 season. Get grounded, stay grounded. The AJ XXXVIII is all about groundwork—we're talking about your running, your cutting, your turn-around jumpers—with low-to-the-court cushioning and a secure upper that helps support every move. It's also designed with sustainability in mind, with at least 20% recycled content by weight. So you can hit 'em with that windshield-wiper fake and feel good about more than just sinking a bucket for your team.
Throughout the shoe's design are shoutouts to MJ's legendary '93 season. Crosshatches, chevrons and lines of ribbing on one shoe represent his points, assists and rebounds per game. Fabric details on the other nod to the 57-25 season record—and MJ's third consecutive championship.
The last thing we need is more waste, so the uppers and laces are made with at least 20% recycled content by weight. Plus, a special Move to Zero box gives you the bells and whistles of commemorative packaging without the extra trash.

Wear the type of socks you'll wear with your shoes and measure feet in the afternoon (feet typically swell during the day). Distribute weight evenly before measuring.
How To Measure
1. Stand up straight on a hard surface with your heel against the wall.
2. With a soft tape measure or ruler, measure the heel-to-toe length.
3. Make sure you measure to the longest point of the toes.
Find The Right Size
