Michael Jordan didn’t like the original Air Jordan 10 “Steel” edition. While away on his quest to make major league baseball, Tinker Hatfield took the liberty of adding leather overlays on the Steel 10’s toe. Once MJ caught wind of this unauthorized design flourish, all subsequent colorways were produced capless. Scottie Pippen put these on the NBA courts a few times during the 1994-95 season, but not MJ. Jordan only laced these once in public exhibition – Scottie’s Ameritech All Star Classic at Chicago Stadium, September 9, 1994, scoring 52 points. Sneaker News caught up with a fan at Sneaker Con Los Angeles who owns one of the few deadstock pairs of these Steels left anywhere, giving us an up close look at a true rarity.
