Air Jordan X Retro ‘Chicago’ – New Images

air jordan x chicago 2012 retro Air Jordan X Retro Chicago   New Images

“I’m back,” he faxed, and we all went completely nuts.  Michael Jordan returned to the NBA in the spring of 1995 after a meh-filled tenure in the Chicago White Sox’ farm system and basketball fans could not have been happier after having endured an NBA Finals the previous year where the main attraction was arguably a white SUV driving down the highway thousands of miles from the arena.  As you’d know from first hand experience if you’ve ever played both games, it takes some time to get back into basketball shape after playing baseball all summer, and perhaps MJ himself was aware of this, as he came back in the unfamiliar ’45′ that graced his Birmingham Barons jerseys.

A new twist some sixteen years later, as the Air Jordan X Retro ‘Chicago’ that has been depicted in sample images alternately with the funky’23′ or  ’45′ emrbroidery now appears to more closely reflect the original with simple white leather on the uppers of a silhouette you may have first come to appreciate on the CMFT Max Air 10s.  These are part of Jordan Brand’s plan for starting 2012 off with a bang, and you can see more of this January ’12 drop after the jump.  Let us know if they’re better with or without the embroidery, and stick with Sneaker News for the US release date.  via SH

Stop it 5... The shoe looks way to plain it needs a 23/45 on the side or put red loops where the laces go bring out tge red more or fix the color of the mid sole to the OG color for all people that don't like it your 501 will cover the number if u no how to rock'em right @brandjordan slippin follow me @polokidjovonie

Yo, 2012 is going to be incredible ! JB didn't fuck up on these. They look clean af. But correct me if I'm wrong...I see people complaining about the 23/45 situation. The OG's released with no stitching. & the ones with the 45 on em were MJ's player exclusives wrong ? So keeping it OG would just to leave it without any number on it. But anyways I can't wait for these.

well......there goes the hot water in my house lol

These and only these should have the number on the side just like mike wore em. I'll take 45 or 23 at this point but since mike hates 45 doubt that number will see the light of day.

Man Since There's No Red Stripes To Bring The Red Out Least Keep The History On The Shoe Which Is '45/23 on the side shoe looks to plain in my opinion but def cop 3 pairs needed same for play off 12s in April its goin to be a crazy year for sneakerheads but JB please don't mess this shoe up either red Stripes or '45/23 on the side

Genius.....OG's have no number. Jordans PE's(if you know what those are) were the ones and the only ones with a 45 on the side. Tighten up
