Today we take a trip back to 1994-95 for our Daily Jordan and visit the Air Jordan 10 in Black/Dark Shadow-True Red.

In the post-Michael Jordan sneaker landscape, the AJ10 was a great sneaker design without a home, without anyone to pitch it on-court until Michael Jordan came back in March 1995. (Scottie Pippen, Mitch Richmond, and Nick Anderson don’t really count). This was also the period that longtime Air Jordan designer Tinker Hatfield was referring to when he intimated in the 2005 book Driven From Within that Nike brass felt the Air Jordan line was done, that there was no point in continuing with Jordan out of the game. Air Jordan 10, even more than its predecessor Air Jordan 9, ostensibly was a shoe nobody wanted. Except Tinker, of course.

A modified version of the “Shadow” colorway released in 2008 as part of the Air Jordan X/XIII Countdown Pack, including a stitched 23 on the ankles that referenced the Shadows with 45 that MJ wore for all four games against the Charlotte Hornets in the 1995 NBA Playoffs. And every now and then the CDP version will hit an NBA court, like it did on the feet of Phoenix Suns scorers Eric Bledsoe and P.J. Tucker this season.

Original AJ10 Shadows, like this one from eBay seller peacecell, are getting harder to come by in any size or condition, but there are still pairs of the Countdown Pack version circulating for fair prices. Check more of the Shadow 10 below and stay tuned for more Daily Jordan.
