Air Jordan X
The Air Jordan X (10) was released in 1994/95.

Michaels new found baseball career was interrupted when a player strike broke out. Rumours broke out that he would return to the basketball court and on March 19th 1995 Jordan was back on the floor.

Surprised Nike?
It seemed as if Nike wasn't expecting to see Jordan back in the game so soon. They started to re-release older model's of the AJ series (I, II, III) and the X's soles featured an honor or an award from each year Michael had spent in the NBA.

Apart from these soles the design was no real surprise and was overall very plain. Hatfield picked up a few design elements from previous models and you could see some obvious signs of influence from the III's, the V's and the VI's.

Samplemania continues
If the IX's had a lot of different samples, the X's were even worse. There were a lot of different team colors that were produced in limited quantities and there were samples with numbers for a lot of different players in the NBA. As Michael wore number 45 when he returned there were also samples with #45 stitched on the shoes.
