Air Jordan 10 Retro – ‘Steel’

Air Jordan 10 Retro - 'Steel' (1)

words // Brandon Richard

The year was 1994. For the second-straight season, the NBA’s greatest player was away fulfilling a lifelong dream of playing baseball. In a November ceremony, the Chicago Bulls retired Michael Jordan’s number ’23’ and erected The Spirit bronze sculpture outside the United Center. That same month, Nike moved forward with the launch of MJ’s newest signature shoe — the Air Jordan X.

With MJ gone from hoops, the launch ‘Steel’ colorway was inspired by the pro baseball team Jordan was attempting to make, the Chicago White Sox. The shoe featured a white leather upper, black leather along the collar and eyestay and steel grey hits on the fabric lace loops and a checkered print on the interior. Finishing off what many considered to be a fairly simple design was a very unique outsole, bearing alternating wavy rubber stripes etched with Jordan’s career accomplishments.

While the Air Jordan X figured to be another model Jordan would never wear on the court professionally, that all changed when he returned to the game in March of 1995. Since then, the model has become one of the more popular styles in the iconic series and will re-release this weekend in its original ‘Steel’ colorway.

One of the year’s most anticipated releases will officially go live this Saturday at 8:00 a.m. EST. While you wait, enjoyed a detailed look at these returning classic Jordan shoes below.
