Earlier today Sneaker News gave you a concrete release date for the Air Jordan XIII ‘Flint’, but for the Cool Grey XI, we gave you a solid release date back in early July. Barring a change of schedule, the Cool Grey XI is set to release on December 23rd, two days before Christmas, and some fear that a repeat of last year’s Space Jam release will occur. Not long ago Sneaker News also gave you a heads up on the packaging for the Cool Grey XI; apparently, the plastic shoe trees – the same used in the Space Jam XI packaging – will be included with the Grey version, so a special slide-out or themed shoe-box could be in the works. In the meantime, take a look at the 2010 Retro version of the Cool Grey after the jump and let us now if you think the Cool Grey release will be as chaotic as the Space Jam XI. via Sneaker Hotline.
