The subject of uniform numbers on Air Jordan Retros is one that we’ll soon feel the impacts of directly.  The AJX ‘Chicago’ had been seen with both ’23’ and ’45’ on its lateral ankles before the final version proved to be blank like the OGs, and we’ve seen the above pictured model with both of MJ’s uni numbers as well.  But the big difference with the Air Jordan XI Retro ‘Concord’ is that, by the time Michael took them on in the 1995-96 season, His Airness had already switched back to his traditional number and the OGs did indeed feature ’23’ on their heels.  But we’ve seen several colorways of the Eleven also done with ’45’ to commemorate the fact Mike rocked these during the ‘lost’ playoffs vs. Orlando, and now it looks like we might have had that version in store for the holidays with all the samples depicted in these new images.  Would you prefer the OG ’23’ or does this retirement-number-one reminder strike you as more collectable?  Check them out in greater detail after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for more on the Air Jordan 11 ‘Concord’ 2011.  via Air-Randy

my vote stays with the 23 but if they wanted to throw a few 45s in the mix it would make it more interesting

#23 for me, some collectors will prefer #45 to set apart from others.. but not me

I don't think this is right to make 45 a retro sample... keep it OG nike, you don't have to rip off everything to make a profit.

ill be honest, it would be sick to have a pair of these in the collection. but since they're essentially the same shoe as the 2011 retros, would pay too much for em

sneaker4eyes

the samples ive had have always said property of nike and not nike usa

Pete

cuz he's not drooling at the fact its a 45 instead of a 23? Umm yeah Jordan Brand is not the only shoe brand. pure hypebeast above this comment
