November 12 was Russell Westbrook’s birthday, but on the night of his birthday, he had joined the rest of the Oklahoma City Thunder in a game against the Dallas Mavericks. In celebration of his birthday though, Russell Westbrook had laced up in a very special Air Jordan 10 pair for the first half of the game. The pair he rocked was the special Air Jordan 10 iteration from the “MVP” Pack Jordan Brand had given to him as gift earlier this summer. Although not from that pack, nor as vibrant, the Air Jordan 10 featured here is apparently scheduled to join next year’s initial Jordan releases 2018.
Earlier in November, sneakerheads may have also read about the highly rumored possibility that the Air Jordan 10 “Shadow” might be making a comeback in 2018. That is actually more than just a rumor because is the sneaker is indeed returning next year. Originally, the Air Jordan 10 “Shadow” had arrived at retailers ten years ago, back in 2008 as a part of that year’s “Countdown” Pack that also included the Air Jordan 13 “He Got Game.” Despite a lack of photos of the actual sneaker, the 2018 version of the Air Jordan 10 “Shadow” will likely be dressed up in a combination of Black, Dark Shadow and True Red.
The Air Jordan 10 colorway featured here, dubbed “Cool Grey,” is not as colorful as the other two referred to above, but that does not change the fact that it still looks dope and is arriving next year. Its uppers are made up of leather and nubuck, both of which are dressed up in the same Cool Grey hue that also covers its inner lining, laces, midsoles and tongues. On the surface, this iteration may look quite dull, monochromatic and tonal, but the outsoles appear to be sporting a multicolor theme underneath, with almost all hues of the rainbow visible down there.
The Air Jordan 10 “Shadow” has already been confirmed to be returning next year on April 2nd, 2018 and it will retail at a price of $190. The Air Jordan 10 “Cool Grey” featured here will also retail at the same price, but it will apparently be among January’s Jordan releases 2018.
