This week, Michael Jordan's youngest son and Trophy Room owner Marcus Jordan stopped by Full Size Run, where, among a myriad of topics, he discussed some of the Air Jordan collaborations he's worked on that didn't make it to retail.
Jordan shared a sail-based version of the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 5, which he first teased back in May, as well as a metallic "Rose Gold" colorway of the Air Jordan 16. According to Jordan, the concept for the Jordan 16 was to make the shoe look like a trophy, but he ultimately decided to scrap it due to concerns that it wouldn't be as well received as the "French Blue" pair that did release.
As promised, Marcus Jordan brought unreleased Air Jordan samples to @fullsizerunshow. Should he reconsider dropping these?— SoleCollector.com (@SoleCollector) December 6, 2019

The bad news for fans of these colorways hoping to land a pair one day? That's probably not going to happen.
"These are samples. They have not come out. They probably will never come out," said Jordan.
In addition to unreleased samples, Jordan discussed playing his father 1-on-1, Bow Wow getting kicked out of their house for wearing Adidas, what happened to Drake's Jordan deal after rumors of him leaving for Adidas and much more. Watch Full Size Run below:
