The Air Jordan XX3 is one of the most celebrated of the post-retirement Air Jordans, so it's safe to say that a retro would be welcome.
According to one leaker, such a retro is actually happening. The sneaker is allegedly coming back in this Chicago-specific colorway, which features the city's skyline towards the heel along with a red-dipped upper. This year doesn't mark any particularly important anniversary for the Air Jordan XX3, so the idea of it coming back is sort of a strange one.
Should this Air Jordan XX3 "Chicago" surface as a retail offering (perhaps at Jordan Brand's new stand-alone store in Chicago?), Sole Collector will have the Jordan release date info on it.

UPDATE 10/22: According to J23app, the "Chicago" Air Jordan XX3 retro will be exclusive to Jordan Brand's 32 South State store in Chicago. The store is set to open this Saturday, Oct. 24.
UPDATE 8/2: It's been a while since the "Chicago" Air Jordan XX3 has popped up. As of now, there's still not a confirmed release date, althought it appears to still be in the plans for a release this year. One lucky big-footer can score this size 15 on eBay right now.
UPDATE 7/6: Michael Jordan's son Marcus already has the "Chicago" Air Jordan XX3 Retro.
UPDATE 6/21: New images via icyheatsole. If this set represents the official release, the pairs will be packaged in a standard Air Jordan retro box labeled "Chicago."
