It's officially Air Jordan XI season.
For nearly a decade, the legendary sneaker has been Jordan Brand's go-to holiday release, and this year it manifests itself in the form of the commemorative "72-10" colorway. Ahead of tomorrow morning's drop, we've got a ton of exclusive images that are sure to get your mouth watering.
This version ditches the ballistic mesh base traditionally found on the Jordan XI's upper for a tumbled full grain leather. A soft microfiber suede fills in the heel and eyelet overlays, while the XI's usual patent leather wrap is given an iridescent tumbled leather treatment.
At its heart, it's the same sneaker you've come to know and love, just revamped with new materials to pay tribute to Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls' record 1995-96 season.
These will be available at 10 a.m. EST tomorrow, December 12, from Nikestore online and select Jordan Brand retailers for $220. While you wait for the big drop, check out the most in-depth photos yet below.
