Colorways from the 2016 Air Jordan 10 City Pack continue to be unveiled and one of them that was recently previewed is inspired by a city within the United States from the west coast. The “Chicago” and “NYC” colorways were the first to be unveiled, while the international “Paris” and “Rio” iterations were also showcased recently. As for the Air Jordan 10 “Los Angeles,” the very first photo of the sneaker had popped up somewhere in between, courtesy of Instagram user @realchickenwop. In fact, the Air Jordan 10 “LA” will apparently be the next installment from the 2016 City Pack to hit the shelves.
Ever since the beginning of March, it had become known that one of the Air Jordan 10 colorways from this year’s City Pack would be paying homage to the city of Los Angeles. However, it does not seem like this city-centric Air Jordan 10 draws its inspiration from the Los Angeles Lakers, because if it was, there would surely feature at least some combination of gold and purple. However, it does appear that this Air Jordan 10 might be themed after the Pacific coastline because of the various shades of blue that can be spotted throughout this sneaker.
The uppers of the Air Jordan 10 appear to be made up of soft leather material, which is predominantly dressed up in an ocean fog hue. A blue lagoon hue makes an appearance over the the inner linings and the signature “LA” logo that is embroidered on the ankles. The lace eye stays, laces and the tongues are covered in midnight navy, while this same midnight navy hue also appears on the otherwise plain white outsoles. In simpler words, it sports quite an aqua theme.
While this is just speculation, this sneaker might actually be inspired by the Los Angeles Dodgers, the city’s official professional baseball theme. This Air Jordan 10 “Los Angeles” is scheduled to make its retail debut on May 14th and Jordanheads will be able to cop a pair for $190.
