With Winter beginning to fade away, Summer is now around the corner, news of every Jordan releases that the Jumpman has been unfolding has been turning out to be quite surprising. One such news revealed back in 2015 that was full of surprises was regarding that of the revamping of the Air Jordan 10 “City Pack.” Considering that year’s “City Pack” is a revival of the former, the sneakers that will be a part of the pack will once again be inspired by specific cities. While Jordanheads have already seen the Air Jordan 10 “NYC,” more new photos of the “Chicago” iteration have also been circulating online.
Had sneakerheads not seen the photos of the Air Jordan 10 “Chicago” featured here, they would have perhaps assumed that it would be dressed up in a “Bred” color scheme, inspired by the Bulls uniform. The return of the Air Jordan 10 “City Pack” probably also reminds sneakerheads of the first time when Michael Jordan retired from the sport of basketball in order to pursue a career in baseball. This led Jordan Brand to attempt to steer clear of the Chicago-theme, drawing inspiration from other NBA cities. The Air Jordan 10 renditions from 2016’s pack are also doing the same.
The Air Jordan 10 “Chicago” appears to be far more colorful than the all-Black “NYC” colorway. Most Chicago-inspired iterations of Jordan Brand’s sneakers are known for sporting a combination of Black, Red and White, which is not the case here. It turns out that Jordan Brand went a step ahead by borrowing the colors that are seen on Chicago’s flag. The sneaker’s leather upper is crisp White, while its elements like the branding, eyestay, heel tab, laces, outsole, and tongue sports hits of Bright Crimson and University Blue. Last but not least, a Black and Bright Crimson “CHI” can be spotted on the ankle.
As of now, it remains unknown when exactly the Jordan release 2016 of the Air Jordan 10 “City Pack” is going to take place. Hence, the Air Jordan 10 “Chicago” will also hit the shelves whenever the entire pack arrives at retailers.
