A lot of you have hit us up asking why we have yet to post any information up regarding the Air Jordan 2010. As we told some of you and will now tell all of you. Last week Jordan Brand hosted the Air Jordan Silver Anniversary 2010 Media Event in Miami, Florida. Knowing this we knew their would soon be some detailed images of the actual sneakers taken from somebody who saw them first hand during the event. Now thanks to KATC we can present to you just that, a first hand look at the actual sneakers and plenty of details about the shoes.
The Air Jordan 2010 was designed in joint project with Tinker Hatfield, Mark Smith and Michael Jordan himself. “It all started with Jordan telling Tinker how he used to look through his opponent while showing his opponent only portions of his game at strategic points,” reports KATC. “He asked Tinker if the Air Jordan 2010 could somehow show portions of his game, from this, the Transprency was born.”
The transparency is the piece on the side of the Air Jordan 2010 which is probably the most recognizable design element within the shoe itself, one which could make or break the shoes for some Jordan fans out there. The clear window is made from TPU which not only adds transparency to the upper but also helps to lighten the shoes up a bit.
KATC also reports, “The other main technological advancement is the vamp (toebox). The vamp is an actual overlay on top of the toebox. The overlay allows for the foot to flex underneath it. The mechanism allows for maximum supportive flexibility.” Theres also the fact the 2010 sports a full length Nike Zoom Air and a double stacked Zoom Air in the heel unit which is sure to provide plenty of comfort on impact.
This particular colorway of the Air Jordan 2010 features a white/red/black color scheme made up from perforated white leather, black textured leather and black nubuck. A red “23” is stitched onto the tongue and with Jordan spelled out in debossed print down the black lace panels. The midsole consists of a combo of white and red with black on the outsole.
The Air Jordan 2010 will officially be releasing at Jordan Brand retailer on February 13th, 2010 for a price of $170. Check out plenty of detailed photos of the Air Jordan 2010 after the jump. We have also included the video of Tinker Hatfield and Mark Smith talking about the Air Jordan 2010 for all those who may not have seen it yet.
