Fresh off of inking a name, image, and likeness (NIL) deal with Jordan Brand in February, it's not surprising that the brand has supplied Kiyomi McMiller with some of its upcoming releases. One of the pairs includes an OG-styled Air Jordan 38 colorway, as seen in the images here.

McMiller shared images on Instagram taken by photographer Kate Ferrante of her recent workout, and on her feet is the unreleased "Aqua" Air Jordan 38. As confirmed by Michael Jordan's namesake brand earlier this month, the Jordan 38 silhouette is directly inspired by the workings of the Jordan 8, so it makes sense that the sneaker also adapts some of the previous model's top makeups as well.

The "Aqua" Air Jordan 38 sports a predominantly black color scheme on the upper, with the signature teal and purple accents appearing on the chenille tongue tag and throughout the entirety of the midsole. The colorway was originally featured on 1993's "Aqua" Air Jordan 8, a fan-favorite makeup which has seen retros in 2007 and 2015.

Per Sole Retriever, the "Aqua" Air Jordan 38 is scheduled to hit retail in December for $200. Check back soon for official updates in the coming months.

UPDATE (09/02): Thanks to @kicksdong on Instagram, we now have another look at the upcoming "Aqua" Air Jordan 38. As of now, the OG-styled colorway is expected to hit retailers sometime in December.
