After only a 3 year shelf life, theAir Jordan 10 "Chicago" is coming back to stores, but this time around with a slightly different look. Jordan Brand is back with what is know to many of us as the "Chicago" Air Jordan 10, but for 2015 we'll be blessed with a remastered version, dubbed the "Double Nickel", that sports the #45 up near the ankle collar which symbolizes the #45 MJ wore upon his return to the NBA, and the Chicago Bulls back in 1995. Although many of us would agree that the "Chicago" Jordan 10 is a great looking sneaker and something we'd all like to add to our collection, it seems that the "Double Nickel" Jordan 10 is being overshadowed by other major releases such as the Air Max Patch Pack and the Air Max Zero.
The idea that a good chunk of people put the Jordan 10 on the back burner this week, in lieu of going after other releases, makes me want to ask the question, is the Jordan Brand fever dying down? Is Jordan Brand releasing retros too frequently? Both in terms of bringing them back from the vault too soon, and in terms of just dropping 4-5 retros per month. How much is too much? When do people start losing interest in paying $190 plus tax for the same retros, week in and week out? It's a debate that could go on forever, and hopefully one day soon, I can get some friends together and post up our discussion about retros, and the current status of Jordan's in general.
With all that said, The Air Jordan 10 "Double Nickel" releases this saturday, March 28th, both, in-store and online at most Jordan Brand Retailers, with a MSRP of $190 plus tax. Will you be looking to grab a pair of the Air Jordan 10's releasing this weekend, or do you still have your pair from 2010 stashed. Let me know what your thoughts are on not only the "Double Nickel" Jordan 10, but the status of retro releases in general.
