One of the more inconsistent details in the entire Air Jordan OG and Retro catalog is the “23” embroidery that has popped up on select models. The Air Jordan V and X are the two that can’t seem to get any sort of rhyme down in terms of adding or omitting the ’23’ stitching on the heel, but we do see that last year’s Spring 2012 release of the Air Jordan X “Stealth” potentially had it in the works. In addition to the “23”, this unreleased sample also shows grey lace eyelets instead of the black used in the release version, which provides even more contrast. So, what’s your verdict? This sample, or the one that hit stores? Check out the this rare look below courtesy of jesusisbackintown on eBay.
I'm a fan of last year's model with the 23 on the heel. Just wish they'd have had blacka and gray on the sole instead of white and gray. The sole is the only white part of the shoe
Sick i wish these even dropped. I got last years model and those are sick but damn the 23 really stands out on these though.
