With MJ still away from the game, the Air Jordan X was created with clean lines, speed lacing, a newly introduced lightweight Phylon midsole and a commemorative outsole which highlighted some of his greatest career achievements. However, with a simple two word press release in March of 1994, Michael let the whole world know that he was back.
Wearing a new number and playing with a fresh outlook, Jordan returned to the Bulls lineup and hardly missed a beat. Season averages of 27/7/5 and an early playoff exit were a tad bit below his usual level of greatness, but it wouldn't be long before the king would reign again.
Jordan Brand celebrates Day 10 of the XX8 Days of Flight with this sleek make-up of Michael's comeback shoe. Buttery black leather is contrasted by neon green hits along the interior and outsole.
