No doubt the most unexpected of retros included in the 2017 Air Jordan releases unveiled today is this, the Air Jordan 15. The sneaker is coming back in its original "Stealth" colorway that's scheduled to return on Jan. 7.

The unorthodox silhouette, inspired by Michael Jordan's wagging tongue, has been somewhat maligned over the years. Even Jordan design legend Tinker Hatfield admitted in 2016 that the Jordan 15 was his least favorite Air Jordan.

The Air Jordan 15 release pictured is part of Jordan Brand's "Take Flight" collection also including the Air Jordan 8 and the Air Jordan 5.
