Around this time of year, optimists tend to begin assembling their list New Years Resolutions. Number One: Buy less sneakers. Yeah, right. With a ton of great releases already confirmed for the first three months of 2012, it’ll be pretty difficult to slow down your sneaker purchases, and February’s release of the Air Jordan X ‘Old Royal’ is one of the main culprits of that temptation. Here we have another look at the upcoming release, which features a combination of tumbled white leather and smooth synthetic leather on the upper, with blue mesh on the lace placket and the trademark checkerboard pattern on the inner lining. February 11th is the target date for these but you can cop them now at SneakerApe, so check out their set of detailed shots below and let us know what you think.
Air Jordan X
I could understand if the whole upper was patent leather but only the sides are an people are freaking out. I think they look pretty good with or without patent leather. Ugly? Well these aren't susposed to be fashionable but they would look hella good on the court.
I Like the retro X's as a whole. But the Patent Leather makes me think twice about them. they remind me of the Retro Vs that came out with the patent leather a while back. I'll just have to see them in person to get a final judgement.
i know people seem to be freakin out over the patent leather, but IMO, it's pretty subtle (actually being serious here), some of our smarter readers (i'm definitely joking here) don't even see the patent leather on the pics. I understand why the patent leather and the mesh annoy the OGs, but, we all already know, every single retro has a change or two. I like these a lot, but they do fall second fiddle to other stuff releasing in Jan/Feb.
Blue looks purple-ish but they ok patent leather on a X is a no no next they going to try the whole shoe patent leather.
ya ppl are idiots these are not patent leather its leather like airforce ones or the retro 3s and these are not fake moron many sites have these up and i can say sneakernews never posted a fake sneaker release from what i know .
someone explain to me why people HATE patent leather on everything... aka these and USA 5s... but if its on the 11 people love it...
i cant wait for these, finally a simple, fresh colorway of a shoe that hasnt retrod a million times already. whos the idiot trying to say theres patent leather on these? and people complaining about quality? already? you havent even seen them in person or touched them.quit trying to earn e-cred, you look silly.
You assholes complain abour everything its a great colorway and a hella spring time shoe I know im getting them. For the rest of yall who keep complaining daily about this & that about quality just move on to adidias or something damn
there alright but there better retro coming out in 2012 so i think people would want those than these.
These are dope. I just don't understand y some many shoes are dropping the way they have r. I mean damn I can't keep up. I guess ur only can if u have money. But shit I remember when jays dropped every year nit everyday of the year. I mean damn, if u got the jays that came out ever y month u could pay rent or mortgage. Shit cray man
THERE IS NO PATENT LEATHER ON THESE 10'S YOU JACKASS... you are blinded by your own ignorance while trying to earn e-cred. can you read..... "which features a combination of tumbled white leather and smooth synthetic leather on the upper"
I wonder how the public will respond to these will it be like the Stealth 3s and other new colorways, bcuz if they are I want to wait and get them at the lowest price lol either way I like and I am copping
