The Air Jordan 10 “Wings” Tributes Chicago’s Transit System
For the past five years, the Jordan WINGS Scholars Program has been hooking up underprivileged youth with full-ride scholarships to college in North America and in Greater China. The Jumpman Brand has been eradicating the financial burdens that come with tertiary education for a select handful of applicants each year, the most recent being the Class of 2023, who earned their wings earlier this year. Aside from celebrating the program through editorial content, the brand also delivers an annual limited release that distributes proceeds directly to the scholarship fund. This year the brand embarks on its most unique Wings offering yet, which was unveiled as part of All-Star Weekend 2020’s Jordan Brand collection.
This year, the Jumpman Brand has given the opportunity to four young Chicago-based talents who have overhauled the Air Jordan 10, along with an assortment of matching apparel. It colors, albeit sparingly used, play a pivotal role in the presentation, with its lines and weave representing the Chicago transit system. Often depicted on a white map, heavily tumbled leathers play the position well, while bold chrome lower overlays mimic that of a train’s outer shell. The colors appear again on the heel pul as if they were a map’s key, and the pair comes complete with an icy blue outsole.
The Air Jordan 10 “Wings” was just unveiled as part of Jordan Brand’s All-Star Weekend roster, so you can expect pairs to arrive at select stores and Nike.com during the weekend — February 12th to be precise. Store listings are yet to surface, so keep it locked on HOUSE OF HEAT for further updates.
