For some its been a seven year wait and others a five year wait, no matter now, tonight once midnight hits the most anticipated sneaker release of the year (or perhaps of the last 5 or 7 years) will be released. This will also conclude the celebration of ’23’ where Brand Jordan has created a number of packs of two classic numbered Air Jordans where both add up to 23. The Air Jordan XI in ‘bred’ colors and the Air Jordan XII is in the ‘taxi’ colorway. They land in stores when stores open Saturday December 20th but some may have midnight releases so double check with your local store. On the East Coast, with a huge snow storm above us, the best way to cop these will be tonight at the usual Air Jordan online retailers. We will have direct links to the pack so make sure to check in with us a little before midnight for the Finishline direct link and between 4am and 7am for the Nikestore direct link.
Update: Both Eastbay and Finishline crashed a lot during the release and they sold out fast but due to the nonstop crashing, it took several hours to sell out. When Nikestore dropped them around 5am est, they sold out within 10 minutes. Because many brought multiple pairs through multiple orders many will be canceled so don’t be surprised these will restock on Monday. Keep your eyes out for an update on Sneaker News.
