As the all-new Air Jordan 10 “City Pack” releases throughout this spring, Nike SNKRS looks back at the original heralded city series from 1995. In Michael Jordan’s absence from the league during his first retirement and stint playing baseball, Nike chose to highlight five NBA cities throughout the league, with rising stars from each town’s designated team wearing the shoe on court. See all five colorways in the OG Air Jordan 10 City Pack below, with details on each from Nike SNKRS.

Eventually worn by MJ during his first return to the league, the Air Jordan X represented for the Windy City in traditional tones. While debuted by others around the league, MJ’s pair was personalized just for him with his new number 45 stitched on the collar.

The Big Apple was represented with timeless orange and royal adorning the Air Jordan X. The design features a look similar to the original Chicago colorway, energized with hits of team hues along the collar and outsole.

Featuring a crafted leather upper with hits of purple, this Air Jordan X represents for the city of Sacramento. While never officially laced up on court, the star of the Sacramento squad laced up a white-based player exclusive colorway.

Before Orlando became one of Chicago’s playoff adversaries, the team’s magical colors outfitted the Air Jordan X. Released to the public during the original run Air Jordan X, the design comes to life in classic fashion with subtle hits of royal blue.

The iconic green and gold born in the Pacific Northwest also adorned the Air Jordan X. Laced up by a Seattle fan favorite, the version that hit shelves went the same route as other designs in the collection. A white upper with black accents and energizing hits of color were seen throughout, uniquely inspired by the Seattle squad.
