Air Jordan X 2012 Retro – ‘Chicago’
The cure for the itch? Scratching the hell out of it. Michael Jordan, sitting bored at home due to the MLB lockout, decided to lace up his kicks again, returning to the ’94-’95 Chicago Bulls with 18 games to go in the regular season. He made his comeback against the Indiana Pacers, dropping 19 points, 6 boards, 6 assists, and 3 steals in a losing effort. The man was showing some rust, until he dropped the double-nickel against the New York Knicks just five games later. What did Michael wear during that comeback game and the double-nickel? The Air Jordan X in White/Black/Red, commonly referred to as the ‘Chicago’ colorway. We’ve got another detailed look at the January 2012 release below so take a look and be sure to check out Michael Jordan Through The Years to get caught up on all the Air Jordan X history. via marqueesole.
even the small changes that's added to these compared to the OG's wont make me say "im not copping" i might just pickup 2 pair
the shape is totally wrong, where you put you foot in the shoe, it wasnt angled down like that. sorry but these look like ass. everyone is bein hypebeasts just cause they chicago's.
GETTING THESE NO DOUBT.... OREO 4 'S ARE MAKING A RETURN NEXT YEAR..... JUST SAW AND READ IT ON ANOTHER SNEAKER BLOG SITE.... THAT'S DOPE..... CAN'T WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR....
All the "sneakerheads" bitching about these act as if these aren't real Jordan's or like life isn't the same lol all that bitching?? then go make your own damn Jordan's and see how they come out..
No thanks. All X's are the ugly anyways. I can care less about "aesthetics" of the shoes. They don't even look the same, and to add on that they Are gonna be cheaply made..
Marqueesole has them then that means its official , having a feeling these are dropping in mid-late spring instead of winter
UGLY!!!! the quality looks so horrible!!! I hate team JB they freakin suck, and i hate people who fein for shoes like these. Michael jordan's overrated ass and his overpriced shoes that look so damn awful, thats why when lebron wins 6 rings, people can and will say he is better than michael jordan. Well he already is, he just doesnt have any rings! Playas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So disappointed....waited so many years for these and they change them from the original :/:/ its not like there was a retro in the last few years they needed to protect. Why can they make the playoff 13's exact to OG but they have to change this. Michael coming back and me getting to see him play in person because of that decision is the biggest Jordan moment for me, and these shoes were the most important to me. why did they feel the need to change anything? Please don't tell me to stop whining or to get over it because its not aesthetics, its a memory. ting to
The game has evolved since Mike played . But keep in mind that Mike played against the best centers ever in the NBA. Olajuwan ,Parrish, Oneal, just to name a few. The only center in the league today is D. Howard.
Man are you going to comment on every picture and or post saying the exact same shit? stfu enough already, and Lebron will never be Michael Jordan and vice versa.. to different eras of basketball fam you cannot even compare them. think about how the game has evolved since jordan's day if anything its gotten easier than in jordan's day with super teams and shit now so please stop with your belligerent ignorance, and the cluster fuck of ideas you have turned into words. fuck.
Cause of that clown Gentry Humphrey who used to basically run Jordan Brand. In his own words; "Retro's are gonna be harder to get, but we're gonna be making them in different materials, etc.." But don't worry, he left JB to ruin Nike Sportswear. Maybe the boys at NSW will realize and fire his clown ass.
They never give a exact replica to ogd or retros anymore even the playoffs 13's have a change, on the bottom for those who have them and know they history know what I'm talking about. It does suck they changed these up so drastically, I was very much on the fence about these but all in all I'm going to cop cause they look better than they were in previous photos, so all systems go.
well if ya knew what u were talkin about then u would know tha playoff 13s are NOT exactly tha same. just sayin
Yeah it sucks, but atleast it's really only the lining of the shoe which won't been seen very often. Atleast if you rock them with jeans a lot
You are correct, they will never make retros exact to the originals because the ogs would loose value, and that would not be fair to those who purchased them during the original drop.
That's true too. I'm just glad it's nothing too noticeable or anything that makes it look totally different.
