Another Michael Jordan tribute is in the Jordan release 2018 pipeline in the form of the Air Jordan 10 “Cool Grey” that is an overdue reincarnation of a similar edition that made the market sometime back in 2014. The sneakers’ design is almost a like-for-like copy of its predecessor, however, these new Jordans have received quite a bit of tweaking and aside from the remastering, it also has a special design trick up its sleeve in the outsole that the one before it didn’t have.

Color: Cool Grey/White
Style Code: 310805-022
Release Date: January 2018
This time around, Jordan highlights a series of successful years with the Air Jordan 10 “Cool Grey” when the legend took the NBA championship by the scruff of the neck from the 84-85 season where he won the NBA Rookie of the Year tag to the MVP triumph of 93 among many other successes.
The Air Jordan 10 “Cool Grey” takes on a suede leather exterior that takes up the entire upper body completely right down to the rubbery midsole. A more vibrant glossy grey outlines the tongue area where a set of artistic lace locks and winding laces put on a beautiful show. This sparkly variation runs on around the collar area before paving way for a more subtle shade that precedes the also sparkly bottom. At the top of the tongue, an Air Jordan logo sticks out alongside Jordan’s favored jersey number: 23.
The bottom is where all the magic happens and gives it that X-factor that sets it apart from the 2014 edition. The outsole is a beautiful kaleidoscope of color coding fireworks with it featuring a number of wavy strip color patterns mesmerizingly alternating across the grey backdrop. The strips color range include a pitch dark shade, inviting light yellow and white, an enthralling sea like blue, a subtle orange and a deep scarlet variation.
Within each stripe, reading literally in between the lines, are a host of Michael’s achievements detailed in appealing imprints that encompasses personal records and a number of championship victories. The bottom is a beautiful exhibition that tells the story of a legend’s journey in stunning fashion. To add a touch of flair, the multicolored strips overflow to the top resulting in an interchanging pattern of vibrant squares that’s truly a sight to behold.
A white Jumpan completes the outsole look taking up three strip spaces to stand beautifully poised near the edge of the masterpiece. Another graphite-esque trademark punctuates the back of the heel area.
