Unlike the Bred series, it seems as though not everyone is enamored with the Air Jordan 10 NYC pictures recently released by the Sneaker News world. The truth is that this Air Jordan 10 colorway needs a second look for you to really appreciate the overall design.
Air Jordan 10 NYC
Color:Black/Black-Dark Grey-Metallic Gold Coin
Release Date:April 23, 2016
Once you’ve gotten used to the design, however, you will start to see exactly why Nike decided to add this to their collection. A black on black design, the only variety in the overall look lies on the splashes of yellow on the leather.
First, there is the NYC stitching found on the sides of the kicks and a tail-like design attached to the heel portion. The midsole of the shoes are also done in black but with speckles of yellow littering the length of the soles. There is also a design for the bottom, creating vertical lines that seem to divide the soles and add dimension to the overall look.
Diverting from the splash of yellow, however, it seems as though Air Jordan decided not to use the shade for their Jumpman icons. Although the tongue is done in basic black, the Jumpman emblem is also done in black, based from some of the pictures shown of the model. Fortunately, there is a difference in the material used so you can still see the distinctive pattern from far away. The same technique is used for the heels, featuring a black background and a black icon of the Jumpman.
The laces are in black too and so are the eyelets. Although there is no distinction to the materials used for different parts of the upper, Air Jordan incorporated lines and stitching that created stylish partitions for the design. Still – no depth and texture to speak of when it comes to the upper portion.
This is one of the few Jordan releases 2016 belonging to the “City Pack” so unless you are from New York, there is really no compelling need to purchase this model. If you like the design, however, then go ahead. It is set for an April 23 release and will cost $190 for a pair. Chances are the Air Jordan 10 NYC will be available in limited numbers so if you want them, better grab them as soon as they become available in limited Air Jordan Brand stores.
All in all, it is a pretty basic model and Air Jordan didn’t really exercise too much imagination to come up with this colorway. Still, if you want it – have it.
