In 1995, Nike released a special ‘City Series’ of the Air Jordan X, representing Chicago, New York, Sacramento, Seattle, and Orlando in five city-specific colorways (the Powder Blue, while resembling the Charlotte Hornets, is not an official part of the pack). While the release of each special colorway wasn’t limited to each respective city (some sneaker retailers at that time received all give colorways), the Air Jordan X ‘City Series’ proved to be one of earlier ‘limited’ releases of Air Jordans, which is why the upcoming ‘Chicago’ Retro in 2012 is so highly anticipated. Again, one such member of this pack was Seattle, which featured a basic White/Black colorway with green accents on the inner lining and the detailing with a yellow Jumpman on the heel of the outsole. Any member of the City Series demands a lot of attention and even more dollars, but we consider the asking price for these deadstock gems to be rather fair! Interesting the price? Check out the auction from Tokyo-based seller gustodaninja on eBay.

Oooooh JB needs to drop these again PRONTO! Seattle heads like myself will cop a few pairs. I know I will!!
Clean for it's age. Fuck the old guy up there, the reason we need a retro is for the simple fact shoes are meant to be worn dumb asses! not to spend a fuck load of money on a SHOE and not put it on your feet? that's stupid like george bush
id love a pair of those ha i love these comments cuz its stupid funny to see all the haters that get on here and hate on every shoe ha smh bucha pigs ha
People like you are what fuck the shoe game up. Back then we used to hunt for our grails and save up $ to cop. Now adays all these lames just wanna wait and cop. People don't give a f*** about shoes anymore, but once they drop people go crazy. Yall are late, get your kick game up. These shoes are probably older than you kid. Damn HYPEBEAST's
Sound like a grumpy old man " back in my day...." just chill out the world is not about u. O yeah when your book dropping " life of the mad reseller."
First of all, I was around when these dropped back in 94-95, so I have a very sharp memory of them. So therefore, you can't tell me nothing. And lastly, I'm the furthest thing from a hypebeast. My collection might not be as huge as other people's, but I got a diverse collection of stuff, even heat that most people like you probably feel like they're too good to cop. Ugh, folks trying to hate for no reason. Knee grows need to quit.
Don't be a douche. Man people like what they like let it be, you can't go around talking smack to a kid just cause he asked for JB to put out a colorway. Your the reason us older guys get a bad rap! Chill out take a Geritol and quit insulting people.
How about not everyone can save up a good $400-$500 cause they have other things going on in there lives. Or because america aint hiring everyone so they can get that money. So they'll settle for a retro that's in there budget. People like you LOVE to call others Hypebeast just cause the say the like a shoe that everyone likes. Why can't someone say they like a shoe without being called a hypebeast? Not everyone goes with the hype sir. So simmer that ass down and go cop your OG's. Make the line a little shorter for the rest of us.
