Jordan X Retro ‘Stealth’ to Hit Shelves Saturday

Fresh new colorway for MJ’s comeback shoe.

by Rodger Bohn / @rodgerbohn

In what has been a downright insane last two months of sneaker releases, Nike will release it’s Jordan X “Stealth” colorway this Saturday, two months after the Chicago 10′s dropped and sold out instantly. Not one of the original colorways, the Stealth’s have a black on black nubuck upper as opposed to the traditional solid leather uppers that all of the original X’s have. The freshest part of the shoe, in my opinion, is the white and grey bottoms that boast MJ’s accomplishments. Though I doubt I will pick them up myself, I can definitely see the white bottoms making the shoe pop with an all black outfit this summer.

Like always, inflation has driven these up to $160 from their original price of around $100 when they released 17 years ago. These will be a general release, meaning you can cop them at any Foot Locker, Champs Sports, House of Hoops, Footaction, etc that usually carry Jordans. With most collector’s opting for original colorways, don’t expect an insane line before doors open for these. As always, they will drop at 12am EST on Nike.com, though Nike’s site has been known to crash on just about every big release.

  • Blasphemy

    Why don’t they just keep the leather? The nubuck ruins every retroed shoe for me. KEEP THE LEATHER.
