Who should buy the Air Jordan 2010
- A great addition for serious collectors of Air Jordan signature basketball sneakers.
- Get the Air Jordan 2010 if you want a stylish, supportive and pricey basketball shoe for indoor games.
Considered a memorable shoe for its unconventional design, the Air Jordan 2010 features a clear side window that symbolizes how MJ sees through his opponents on the court.
The basketball sneaker features a detached toe cap, a perforated leather upper, a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) transparent window, and a double-stacked Zoom Air cushioning setup.
Air Jordan 2010 comes with double-stacked cushioning
Jordan is one to spoil hoopers with the Air Jordan 2010’s cushioning system and its double-stacked Zoom Air units.
This setup is a cushioning sandwich where a thin Phylon foam is in between a top-loaded heel unit and a bottom-loaded full-length Zoom Air unit.
Offers a springy ride
The top-loaded unit brings stability while the full-length Zoom Air creates a more springy ride that absorbs shock even on the get-go.
The outsole features a herringbone traction pattern that is scattered all throughout. The tread pattern extends to the heel to assist players that land on the heel.
Length and Width. The shoe fits true to size, but it can feel a bit narrow at the forefoot due to the clear counters. It is best to try the shoe on personally in order to avoid shoe discomfort.
Several elements of the shoe’s design contribute to its lockdown power: the traditional lacing system, the TPU counters at the forefoot and heel, the foam pods on the heel, and the rigid heel cup.
All of these work together to avoid both side-to-side and front-to-back internal slippage. The collar is purposefully made asymmetrical in height so that it accommodates the foot's natural form and ultimately giving it a snug and sculpted wrap.
The shoe’s toe box is detached and completely wrapped in soft tumbled leather. Because of this, the wearer will be able to flex and bend without creasing the toe box nor the main body of the upper.
Mesh fabric for breathability
The same high-quality leather material is used in the heel area. Underneath the leather toe box is a mesh fabric that contribute to the shoe’s breathability.
The clear windows on the side panels are made of TPU, which provides ventilation and takes off some of the shoe’s weight. TPU counters reinforce the medial and lateral sides of the forefoot and heel so that they keep the foot within the footbed during hard cuts and other movements.
The shoe’s Phylon midsole houses two Zoom Air units of differing sizes. Depending on the colorway, the outsole is made of either a solid rubber compound or a translucent one.
The clear panels on the sides are actually the designers’ response to Michael Jordan’s request for a transparent shoe.
Luxurious leather toe cap
Both the clear window and the luxurious leather toe cap take the center stage, and they are often described as classy and over the top.
The base of the Phylon midsole showcases a quote from Michael Jordan that says, “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
Air Jordan 2010 is a must-have shoe for collectors
In the year of its release, five colorways were debuted. The Air Jordan 2010 28 Days of Flight is a dual chrome shoe of black and neon green. The shoe is finished off with a solid rubber outsole.
The XX8 Days of Flight colorway celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the Air Jordan shoe series. The basketball shoes of Michael Jordan have a 28 Days of Flight colorway from the first Air Jordan model to the 23rd.
