It’s about time the Air Jordan XVI re-released, right? Outside of the Countdown Package releases of 2008, none of the Air Jordans XVI and later were re-issued, but according to this never-before-seen Promo Sample, the 2008 Air Jordan XVI ‘CDP’ may not have been a solo act. The latest to roll out of the Air Jordan sample vault is the Metallic Blue/White colorway, which features a unique material on the upper similar to the matte Foamposite-like finish seen on the Jordan Six Rings ‘Foamposite’ release of early 2011 (not really Foamposite, but a similar texture/feel/look). The entire upper including the gaiter features this seldom-used material, and when paired with the white midsole and translucent outsole, this unreleased sample proved that there’s still a lot of uncharted territory in the Air Jordan XVI. A detailed gallery awaits you below, so take a look and peep the full listing from brokeonjordans on eBay.

Materials look way too flimsy and not feeling the white inside lining but nice colorway but proly should do a real leather or suede or nubuck blue

I'd buy these. I like the 16's. I want a pair of the cherrywoods if they drop again. Those were SICK!

Not a fan. It looks better with the cover on it though. I don't like any Jordans past the 14 other than the 19.
