During the first few days of March, news began spreading that Jordan Brand had apparently started working on an Air Jordan 10 with a Los Angeles theme as a part of this year’s City Pack. Until then, Jordan Brand had only been revealed information about three of the iterations from the 2016 City Pack in terms of what aspect of their respective city they are inspired by. These were the Air Jordan 10 “Charlotte,” “Chicago” and “NYC,” but last month they also shed light on the Los Angeles version’s source of inspiration too. Following the unveiling of the Air Jordan 10 “Paris,” now the “LA” rendition has been unveiled too.
Even though Jordanheads were informed what or where the Air Jordan 10 “Los Angeles” was drawing its inspiration from, they had no clue what the sneaker would actually look like. The only thing they were able to learn was that the Los Angeles-themed colorway of the Air Jordan 10 from the City Pack would be inspired by the Los Angeles Dodgers. This probably gave them at least a hint that this sneaker inspired by the city’s local professional baseball team could feature their Dodger blue and white team colors.
Based on the photo that Instagram user @realchickenwop has shared, the above appears to be true. As can be seen in the photo, the uppers of the sneaker seem to be dressed up in multiple darker shades of blue. The only lighter shade of blue that is visible on the sneaker is the one spread over the inner linings. Since it is representing Los Angeles, “LA” is embroidered on the collar, much like the other city-inspired versions. Last but not least, this sneaker is also equipped with clean white midsoles, while the outsoles are covered in a combination of blue and white.
Even though a few of the colorways from the 2016 Air Jordan 10 City Pack have already hit the shelves, Jordanheads will have to wait for the current month to pass if they want to cop this one. It is being reported that the Air Jordan 10 “Los Angeles” will arrive at retailers on May 14th.
