Wait a second! Wasn’t the big Air Jordan XI Retro release for 2011 supposed to be the OG ‘Concord’ colorway from 1995?! For those of you who have your heart set on the original Elevens, this news has no bearing on what should figure to be Holiday 11’s single biggest release, though it is directly connected to the shoe that took that title two years ago. The Air Jordan XI ‘Space Jam’ was such a massive hit that they beat out Kanye West’s first Air Yeezys to top our Sneaker News Top 30 of 2009 and now they’re in even rarefied-er air now, thanks to a series of deadstock pairs soon to arrive at Asian retailer RMKstore. It’s pretty uncommon to see such a treasure trove available from a retailer so long after the original (instant sell-out) release, and although their site has no indication of price or quantities yet, you can inquire with them here regarding info and placing a reservation. If you’re still looking for a pair and dont want to go the overseas route, you can check to see what the market says they’re worth and grab a pair on eBay.
