The mustard-like color known as Chutney has turned up on just a few Jordan releases since debuting on the original XIII Low in 1998. Finding new life in 2005, the color appeared on the "East" Air Jordan XX and "Dark Cinder" Air Jordan Retro 14. Since then, Chutney as been pretty much M.I.A., but these never-before-seen look see samples have brought the yellowish hue right back to the forefront.
Created for the 2005 Holiday lineup, the shoe features a full Chutney nubuck upper with a tonal set of laces. Black fills in the tongue and heel, while Light Graphite appears on the cross-bar, heel strip and Ferrari-style Jumpman shield. The midsole and outsole are predominantly done in black, with graphite filling in various sections.
These obviously never hit retail, but can be yours for the bargain price of $2,500 over at eBay today.
