At the time of the Air Jordan 10’s initial release, the man behind the Jumpman retired from basketball to compete on the diamond. When you flip the shoe over – the sole gives nod to some of His Airness’ most memorable achievements on the court. In 1995, Jordan Brand took the story-telling concept a step further with the “City Series” Pack. Decades later, the city inspired pack continues with the Air Jordan 10 Retro “Rio”.
The ‘Rio’ colourway sports a wolf grey and obsidian upper. The stitched Rio represents the location of a historic statue – another inspiration behind this shoe. The colourful sole, representing the countries’ national flag, gets brighter from heel to toe as does His Airness’ accolades from 85 to beyond.
