Here we have a look at one of the most intriguing Air Jordan promo samples that you are likely to ever see. A few years back, Nike was exploring the idea of making one-piece versions of some classic models that used no stitching on the uppers. Apparently, Jordan Brand took a liking to the concept and gave it a test run. Two one-piece versions of the Air Jordan X were created, both eliminating all of the lines and layers of the upper and replacing them with a simplified surface. A safety orange pair takes the Air Jordan X to its boldest heights yet, while a navy suede version provides a subtler look. Unfortunately this interesting idea never came to fruition as a retail release, but at least we get to take a look at what could have been. Check out some more pics of both colorways after the jump and let us know what you think of these wild Air Jordan samples. Via Kenlu.
