Our third ‘On The Fence’ feature of March focuses on the Air Jordan X ‘Stealth’ – a remixed colorway that shuffles the color-palette of the Air Jordan X ‘Steel’ while using nubuck uppers on a white outsole. While this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a predominantly black Air Jordan with grey and white hints (in fact, the Air Jordan VIII Black/Chrome is doing just fine in our Sneaker News March Madness Tournament), it’s definitely something new to the Air Jordan X. Nubuck on an Air Jordan X has never been done, although we have seen patent leather on the Old Royals and even the one-piece leather joints on those unreleased samples of the mid-2000’s. So while the Air Jordan X doesn’t necessarily grab the old-time factor of the Air Jordan X as it dabbles with colorways and materials that we are unfamiliar with, does that make these a ‘pass’? Or is this fresh take on the rejuvenated Air Jordan X too irresistible? Let us know what side of the fence you fall on below and if you’re already certain about your decision, grab one of the available pairs on eBay.
