If you had the opportunity to be the divine maker of Air Jordans and took control of the helm at the Jordan Brand factory, what sort of colorways would you cook up? The Air Jordan Rainbow Pack is a good start, don’t you think? That set of samples (intended for display only) featured the first twenty-five Air Jordans built up in a tonal uppers and white outsoles, making for a color-blasted legacy of Air Jordan mania that certainly stirred up a wide range of opinions. Simply put, some liked it, others did not, but let’s be real here – anytime a new colorway of an Air Jordan pops up, we can’t help but be excited at the prospects of a release. Unfortunately, the Rainbow Pack won’t ever release, but of course there are the select individuals who somehow come into possession of these artifacts, so check out the Air Jordan 2009 of the Rainbow Pack below and head on to the complete listing from brokeonjordans on eBay.

It all started with that Air Jordan IV, showing up with the monochrome blocking on top that was unlike any Air Jordan colorway we’d seen before. After that the Air Jordan XVI and Air Jordan XII did the same, suggesting that the super colorful pairs were part of some over-arching theme never to make it to retail, sort of in the same vein as the ‘History of Flight’ or ‘Pantone’ series. Well folks, Pandora’s box has officially been opened-it turns out the set spans quite the range, starting at the Air Jordan 1 and reaching all the way up to last year’s Air Jordan 2011, created strictly for display purposes in the Spring 2011 season just like the aforementioned collections. Every two pairs along the way sports a slightly different shade, with the 25 separate models included pretty much spanning what the rainbow has to offer. Hit the jump with us to check out the crazy Air Jordan ‘Rainbow Pack’ courtesy of brokeonjordans on eBay and let us know which pair among them you like the most. Photos: brokeonjordans
