Spring 2012 will feature the Air Jordan X as one of the premier Retro releases of the season, so is this never-before-seen colorway of the Air Jordan X a sign of things to come? Jordan Brand Associate Product Line Manager Doug Barclay recently tweeted a pictured of this sample colorway of the Air Jordan X, which features a grey upper, white midsole, and hints of neon green on the inner checkerboard print lining and the outsole. Like what you see? Check out the extra shot below and chime in with your thoughts on this possible upcoming colorway, and stick with Sneaker News for the latest updates on all Air Jordan releases.

These can actually break a few necks i mean the color combination isnt that bad and the colors play and contrast of eachother nicely, and it does stand out more than SOME of the classic X colorways. i can see these being a hit if they drop, besides if all JB did was re-retro every OG without introducing new color ways everyone will still complain about how fcked up the quality is on the retro compared to the OG, so for a new colorway this isnt that bad.
Whatever you do, don't make them 3m. I remember the green bean samples weren't 3m either. I'm tired of JB reusing ideas on other Jordan's. That's the main reason we like a certain shoe sometimes. They do things like that to hype another shoe up! Unless it's an OG bulls colorway, be more original JB, come on.
Did anybody catch that this a different sole on the Xs ....thats not how the retros looked some years ago
I'm all for new color ways instead of raping the OG color ways until there's none left.. but I'm not a fan of any of the new X colors soon to drop.
I mean they don't look half bad. Just not something I would cop. OG Colorways > Everything to me. I wanna see more pics though.
HOLY $*%^ they just throw out a 1/2 decent new colorway once in a blue and re release the same kicks every few years... at this point they know that people will buy anything with a jumpman
NOOOO...............NO WAY NEVER I WUDNT BUY THESE IF THEY WERE ON SALE 4 100.00. UGLY COLORWAY N TOO MUCH GREY THIS YEAR
These are dope! (But then again, lime green is my favorite color) Bring these on and the OGs! I want 'em all!
i dont undersstand why theyre adding that lime green... it makes the shoes looks so azn bootleg.. this coming from an azn... i would not wear these.. ppl would judge and think im wearing some b grades son..
Those dont even look like 10's with that color way. It's cool tho. I kinda like the green hits - something different then the classic red or blue hits.
needa see more pics but u can see the sole is gonna be that neon green would def like to see a pic of that sole but these do have potential
a classic colorway and one of my more favorite jordans but for some reason i jus dont like this shoe
Please tell me what you guys want jordan to do ..keep releasing the same og colorways ..eventually that will get old. So yea i guess im down with them trying new colorways
color way aight not as dope as city series so why not release thoose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
these are nice but i really hope they retro the varsity reds sometime in the near future. easily one of my favorite colorways of one of my favorite shoes of all time, but dropping 300+ on a single pair isnt my cup of tea
These are crazy. Can't believe initial response is bad. I just want every colorway of the X already. One of the few jordans I really want but don't have in my collection yet.
Nah... The green makes it too cheesy or kiddy like. Almost looks fake with that colorway. If you're going to make a grey colorway just go all out like the 11's and 5's
alright i guess, but if i want a grey and green shoe, id get the Green Beans, or any Clark Kents. But if they hit the sales rack, i just might cop
this comment gets thumbs down but thats how im feelin also, i dont know why. i dont think i will cop any new cw Xs.
i appreciated this comment until the whole 8s part. don't get me wrong im a fan of 8s as much as the next guy but i dont really think theyre underrated. 9s and 10s are probably the most anonymous models
yo i feel you on that. the shoe can be nice if the soles were a different color and also the insides.
So let me get that right, the aquatic 8s are "tight" but the rest are wacky...yea the aquatic 8s are the shot but the 8 is a fresh sneakers, SOME colorways might be weak but the Jordan 8 is definitely not weak and the Jordan 10 is fresh too...step your game up!
