Are three pairs enough for you sneaker-hungry fiends? You can expect the OG Chicago, the recently trending ‘Stealth’, and the all-new Old Royal during the Spring 2012 season, all of which would be great addition to a budding Air Jordan X stash. Not counting the ‘Shadow’ release from 2008, we haven’t seen a mass wave of Air Jordan X retros since 2005, when a number of new colorways were introduced. The ‘Old Royal’ has received warm reception thus far, with the new mesh material and patent leather mudguard providing a fresh take on the sixteen-year-old model. Will you cop the Old Royals? After taking a look at this intensely detailed set of images, it sure will be tough to say no. Take a look below and let us know if these are a must-have for you. via kickz-lab.

I think the patent leather gives these X's a fresh feel to the shoe. I think plain leather along would have been to boring. Just my Opinion. And of course Any JO in that Bulls Colorway is an instant classic. Its the colors he wore when he did most of his magic. I def cop when they drop but im excited for these new colorways that are dropping. Side Note: The mesh is a bit much though llol
One thing I loved about this shoe is that it's probably one of the most original and not overly done shoe ever. I'm not saying the Air Jordans I - XXIII were over done, it's just most of them have a lot of inspired ideas put into one shoe sometimes make it clustered, but still great.
WAH WAH WAH all i ever see is people complaining on here...how about this, IF YOU DONT LIKE THE SHOE DONT BUY IT... dont know why you kids bitch and moan about every little thing
That patent leather threw it off for real. Really cheapens the look. All leather would have made these pretty nice.
Too much is going on with this shoe. The purple hue, mesh lining, and patent leather? A bit of overkill, Jordan Brand. And this is the simplest Air Jordan model.
if you are not a true jordan sneakerhead-------------------------STAY THE HELL OFF THIS PAGE AND KEEP YOUR LAME ASS COMMENTS TO YOURSELF. Much love jb, been rocking jordans since the nineties!
never really liked this cw to begin with, but the purplish-blue as well as the PL just makes em worth. I'm liking what i see from the stealth 10's though
The patent leather kinda killed it for me =/ at a glance it doesn't look like it but man...all leather woulda been perfect. =/ Not a deff cop but one to think about
WOW -____- this looks purple... &&& patten leather kills the shoe!! JB is HORRIBLE!!! only coppin the 10's and 4's next year & im done with jordans! movin on to KD's & LeBrons!
Is there something is wrong with you. The only hot KD's that ever dropped were the weathermans. Lebrons doing to much. He has some ok colorways. Long story short . you dont move onto another sneaker you buy what you like and dont be a hypebeast
