Can you spot the differences between this sample version of the Jordan 10 “Stealth” and the final pair that made it to retail? First of all these have got the “23″ embroidery, a detail that’s popped up every once and a while for this silhouette, up towards the ankle in a light grey. On top of that there’s a bit more grey injected via the lacing straps. The result is a sneaker that ends up much more committed to the grey parts of the “Stealth” equation than the released version. Get a look at the Jordan 10 below and keep in mind that you could own them for yourself thanks to thecoolshoeshine on eBay.

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.
