The NBA went through its post-23 era after Michael Jordan’s retirement(s) and now it seems that Jordan Brand itself is in that grey area. After a less than successful run with the Air Jordan 2009/2K9/XXIV, Jordan Brand is back with its second edition of their signature shoe in the post-Air Jordan XX3 era.

Sketches of the Air Jordan 2K10 have bounced around online for the last few months, but today an actual pic of the shoe has popped up on Freshnessmag.com’s site.

The large, round Jumpan logos on each side of the shoe are a new feature, while the shoe looks to channel elements from past models as well. I’m seeing parts of the XX3 in there, maybe the XX on the outsole, shades of the VII in the patent-looking triangles on the outside of the toebox.

What do you guys think? Is this an improvement on the 2K9? What does this shoe do for you?

Thanks to Kicksonfire for the heads up on Freshnessmag’s post. Pics via osneaker, who apparently has already sold out of the limited quantity they had of the shoe.
