New Jordans 2016 would celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Space Jam with a re-release of the classic Air Jordan 11 that was laced up by MJ in that film. The all-black Air Jordan 11 with a royal blue Jumpman has gone on to be one of the most revered Air Jordans ever created, and one could argue that the massive turnout for the 2009 re-issue is what sparked the annual campouts and general mayhem around the December AJ11 drops. It makes plenty of sense for Jordan Brand to bring out the Space Jams because of the aforementioned 20th Anniversary and the fact that every other OG Air Jordan colorway has already seen the light of day in recent years.
Launching true to form, the Cheap Jordans 2016 release comes with Black patent leather and mesh through the uppers. Concord lands on the stitched Jumpman while White runs through the midsole while a translucent outsole is intact. Other details include the number 45 stitched on the heel instead of 23 while Nike Air is placed on the insoles. Overall, this pair will resemble that of Michael Jordan’s PE. The Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” will be the 2016 Christmas release. It appears that Jordan Brand is finally giving the fans what they want while celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Air Jordan 11 and the film.
New Air Jordan Shoes, The Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” is set to make a return this December, and today we get the best look yet at what’s shaping up to be one of the best Jordan releases of the year. In addition to the “45” on the heel, a nod to the first version of the black/blue/white Air Jordan XI that Michael Jordan wore during the 1995 NBA Playoffs, the patent leather on the upper will be cut to mimic the original as well, with the edges of the mudguard revealing a white color like OG Air Jordan 11s do. The remastering process has transformed this iconic Air Jordan 11 colorway back to the OG days of early 1995 samples, as the retro mimics the pair that Michael Jordan wore during his second-round matchup against the Orlando Magic. The patent leather is cut a bit differently here and showcases a white shade on the piping as all OG Jordan 11s did.
In 1995, three colorways of New Jordans 2017 11th signature sneaker released in both the iconic patent leather trimmed mid-cut and an elephant print trimmed low-cut version known as the IE. Five years later, the sneaker returned for its first retro run with new and OG colorways of the mid-top as well as low-tops that featured patent leather and snake skin. The Air Jordan 11 also served as the motivation for Jordan Brand to move Air Jordan Retro releases to Saturday as students often skipped school and cut class to get their hands on a pair.
