As per the Jordan release dates 2016 schedule, another City Pack of Air Jordan 10 colorways, which are a nod to cities that have in some way been influenced by Michael Jordan, will arrive at retailers later this year. The first sneaker from the pack that was unveiled was the all-Black Air Jordan 10 “NYC” that sports a few Gold accents here and there. So far, it seems that this year’s City Pack includes three other iterations, namely the “Charlotte,” “Chicago” and “Los Angeles” ones. Following the unveiling of the “Chicago” rendition, details have also surfaced about the “Los Angeles” one.
It must be obvious that each colorway from the pack is meant to pay tribute the particular city they are named after. A recent post on this blog revealed that the “Chicago” colorway draws its inspiration from the Chicago flag rather than the Chicago Bulls, which is the reason its tumbled leather upper is dressed up in a combination of Crimson, Light Blue and White. As a representation of the city, “CHI” is embroidered on the ankle collars, in Crimson with a Black outline. The “Charlotte” and “Los Angeles” iterations have yet to be unveiled, but rumors are alluding to what the latter looks like.
Unlike what Jordanheads might be assuming, the Air Jordan 10 “Los Angeles” does not draw inspiration from the Lakers. Rather, the colorway is apparently a tribute to the Los Angeles Dodgers and has apparently been designed to sport the team’s official colors. According to the rumors, this iteration will be dressed up in a combination of Blue Lagoon, Midnight Navy and Ocean Fog. Much like the “Chicago” rendition, “LA” will be embroidered on the ankle collars rather the usual “23” or “45.”
Currently, there is no photo(s) available that showcase the actual sneaker. However, it is being rumored that the retail debut of the Air Jordan 10 “Los Angeles” from the City Pack will take place on May 14th and sneakerheads will be able to cop a pair for $190.
