JORDAN RETRO 10 – JAN. 27 AT 10 AM ET

1.24 Release Report Jordan Retro 10

Back in 2014, Jordan dropped a cool grey colorway of their Retro 10s that became a favorite of sneakerheads everywhere. That cool grey theme is back this weekend, but with a fresh update. This time around, the upper features no black, as the grey color continues across the tongue, lining, laces, and midsole. The coolest touch is definitely the multi-color outsole though — each line across the bottom calls out a specific career highlight during MJ’s extraordinary career. Lace up in your own pair and you’ll truly be taking history with you everywhere you go. Men’s $190.00.
