Foot Locker Unlocked digs into their vault to pull out an original "Shadow" Air Jordan X sample from 1994. One of Michael's weapons of choice when he returned from his brief mid-90s baseball hiatus, the "Shadow" X features a grey suede upper, complimented by tumbled black leather along the collar, eyestay and sidewalls. What makes this pair unique is that it also features the reinforced leather toe rand, which was requested to be removed by MJ before the shoe hit production and was made available to the general public.
The "Shadows" were last release in 2008 as part of the Air Jordan X/XIII Countdown Pack. More shots of the original sample below.
