So much for this one as 2011’s sneaker story of the year. The Nike Mag 2011 is now a mortal lock to top all the year-end lists, its combination of longstanding anticipation, limited numbers, auction-based availability and market valuation unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. But then again, many of those qualities also apply to the first basketball shoe to feature patent leather and carbon fiber, the Air Jordan XI Retro ‘Concord’. This is the shoe Michael Jordan wore in 1995-96 when he led the Chicago Bulls to a record 72-wins, and even if it does play the Sonics to Marty McFly’s crown-snatching release, it’d take something stronger than defying the laws of physics to keep these from being the biggest Christmas season sneaker release.

Air Jordan XI Retro ‘Concord’
THEY ARE ON E BAY NOW FOR ALMOST A 1000 DOLLARS I MEAN IT'S O.K. TO MAKE A PROFIT BUT THAT IS JUST CRAZY MY SON WANTS A PAIR BUT SINCE THEY WERE SOLD OUT AT THE ONLY MALL WE HAD IN HIS SIZE AND ON LINE TO HE WANT BE GETTING ANY I CAN GET 5 OR 6 PAIR IF NOT MORE FOR THAT MUCH MONEY. I REALLY THINK THEY SHOULD STOP PEOPLE FOR OVERCHARGING PEOPLE LIKE THAT THAT'S JUST REALLY COMMON.
lol who ever got these early you guys got b grades now if your one of the lucky ones you received a 'high class b grade" they are not fake at all they go through inspection and are marked as B grade because there r some Minor defects such as the see through toes and milky..stiching... 23 placement but they are not fake...instead of production sending them back to recycle them they just look the other way and send them right through now why is that? because idiots like ya buy them early and for $100 bucks more....if retailers got together and say NO TO B GRADES!!!! then JB wouldnt look the other way since noone is buying them but thank god for them their are idiots that keep bending on fours for this government...wake up people! for the dude above na son you dont have a A grade..just a high class b grade read up on it i know what im saying
Def cop Fuck What Everyone is saying about their soles not glued on right milky toes o whatever if you have Second thoughts then don't buy early released shoes Jb Is just doing usca favor and saving the sleeping over night but still getting another pair in Dec For The ady n me
I was actually looking forward to getting these,but now it looks like the whole world is gonna get these..smh and not to mention that I got so tired of looking at all these picture reviews and teasers,the shoe is just starting to look so plain to me..I wanted these so bad too..lol :(
all i'm going to do is cop 1 or 2 pairs and sell them hoes for 400-500 each and get me some REAL heat. im not hating on this but i just dont like the icey blue i hate the quality and everything. I feel sorry for those who paying 300+ for this piece of sh** IMO it not worth getting b grades SMH.
All y'all would probably blow Jordan if you were to see him on the street.. OOOH WAIT Y'ALL ARE ALREADY SUCKING HIM UP REAL GOOD.. pathetic how y'all poor bastards are spending money y'all don't have on a fucking SHOE!! Get an education and grow up!!!
Nigga in Paris we all know ur poor ass lives in the ghetto!!! The NBA lock out is war between millionaires n billionaires do u really think they giveashit about us the American people he'll no nigga Oh n bythe way I'm Mexican a lighter shade of brown so yup I can say nigga!!! Jordan retro xi are a classic. Period. Believe it
Correct me if im wrong bt the og white cement 4 from 1989 were $110 and then the 199 9white cement retros were $100 so i dont think it's inflation....and i bet the 2011 cement 4s are gonna be $160 with lower quality...
it s really hard!! but my size isnt offered in that overprized preorder early getting sh*t tho, everytime itends up wit 13. thats another fact why i m goin to wat till end of the year and then i will double up for the first and the last time...!! my favorite jay in favorite coloration!!
Shit...I'll wait til December. Idgaf about quality anymore. Like SN said "with inflation, price hikes on materials, you can't expect to have "back in the day" prices." so you can't complain. I mean you can but it's pointless
D.O.R (Death of Reselling) re-sellers have f***'d up the sneaker game, they are the reason j's are now $200 an up as oppose to $125 like back in the day. Nike makes billions per year so they have no reason to hike up their prices on any of their products. Nowadays their shoes are being sold off "hype" alone. The sooner the hype dies down the more reasonable the prices are going to get. Think about how much money nike would lose if nobody "hyped" up new releases or waited for hrs in bullshit weather just to buy a damn pair of shoes. If there were no sneakerheads there would be no Nike/JB, we have more power than we think as consumers.
do u guys think its worth it? paying 335 for a pair of shoes that are gonna b 180 retail... i might as well wait and buy 2 pairs and sale the other to make some money back... i no for sure if i order them i would b the first n ma city to rock them but is it 335 dollars worth? wat yall think
Thank you for notifying me of this SneakerNews, but i'd rather use the $320 (pocket change) on something better than those ugly ass Jordans. I'd rather save up a few g's and buy some rich nigga shit, clearly none of these kids can even touch me with their cheap ass Jordans.
relax with the generalizations homie your not the only college grad (go terps) on here. you can get an education and still have a passion for someting, say for example J's. and im probably sure alot of people on here are like me and buying these shoes now because of sentimental value or maybe my fellow "poor bastards" couldnt afford them when we were young bucks.
if you really feel this way why are you on a site called sneakernews i mean you know this is not the New England Journal of Medicine
Oh hell naw! So, if a white boy like me gets a REALLY good tan, which probably I'm more darker than you, do I get a pass on the N-word, as well? What the motherfucking fuck! ... that's some of the most ignorant shit I've seen yet on SN.
And oh yeah, pass on early release of any shoe from these 3rd party companies waiting to rape young sneakerheads.
thanks for the advise bro and i usually don't resale my shoes and if i did it would b to make my money back for them and it would b like they paid for themselves .. i rock all my shoes but some people dnt get them and they sale out so i could help out by saling mines for a reasonable price
Trust me bruh and the last two sneakerheads giving u advise, don't buy from these sites. They are all b-grades....last pair I bought was the spacejams off marqesole. Paid damn near $400 with shippinga and they were straight garbage and that's where they ended up, in the trash....had to buy another pair when they dropped
How about you just get of this site then?? I'm pretty sure it was you who typed SneakerNews.com in the address bar... Who can barely afford the internet he uses to check this website, this guy, right here. I'll just stick with my retro obsession and keep spending it on my "cheap ass Jordans."
Their making extra money off the stupid slide box it comes in . I bought the all whit xi s for 150 retail only difference is the box and hype . Shoe is only worth 150 .and no shoe other than the 13s should be 160 retail. But hey I don't do too much complaining I jjust buy regardless
& that's to be expected and welcomed. However these "resellers" r in it to make a buck which leave real sneaker enthusiast high & dry. We actually Roc our joints and look foward to release dates of highly anticipated sneakers. The mark up these "resellers" push is rediculous...
