One thing’s that been a constant in Jordan Brand’s yearly retro-release schedule: the year-end sale of the Air Jordan XI. With the Concords already confirmed for 2011 (with a late December release likely), that would make three years in a row that Jordan Brand saved (arguably) the most popular Air Jordan as the final retro release of the calendar year. There were some rumors of the Air Jordan XI ‘Columbia’ being released as part of the two-pair package with the Air Jordan XII Obsidian, but you can bank on these being the December 2012 marquee Retro release. To refresh your memory, here’s a look at a deadstock pair of MJ’s 1996 NBA All-Star Game shoes in pristine condition; the outsole is still incredibly clear (almost blue), and the patent leather as well as the mesh has held up rather well to the dreadful yellowing that occurs over time. More detailed images await you below so take a look and let us know where the ‘Columbia’ ranks among all the Air Jordan XI colorways of all-time, and hit up this auction from rprinz8 on eBay.
