Since the Holiday 2008 season, the Air Jordan XI pattern has clearly unfolded before our eyes. Starting with the CDP release that contained the Bred colorway to the most recent Concord frenzy just six weeks prior, it was rather obvious that we were in for yet another Air Jordan XI release for the Holiday 2012 season – it was just matter of selecting what would in fact release. According to some new information that has recently surfaced, this upcoming Christmas Day hot-ticket item will be the Air Jordan XI ‘Columbia’ – a shoe that released as an Original in 1996 and a Retro in 2001 and was later dubbed the ‘Columbia’ for the hint of Columbia Blue used on the Jumpman on the heel. This particular Air Jordan XI was made famous by Michael when he wore them in the 1996 NBA All-Star Game, winning the MVP award along the way to the single greatest season in pro-basketball history. While this isn’t an official confirmation, what we see here is consistent with previous Air Jordan XI Retros, and quite honestly, isn’t much of a surprise considering what went down in Holiday season prior! Will these be a huge hit like the Concords, or will people be ‘content’ with the Silver Anniversary XI that dropped in 2010? Will we get a mesh upper, or the original leather? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and we’ll keep you updated on the Air Jordan XI ‘Columbia’ 2012 Retro. via ebl4287 of ISS

“I can’t confirm the authenticity of this image, HOWEVER…This picture does share the same shape and patent leather cut from the recent retro xi’s. You guys can be the judge. AGAIN i can’t confirm this to be authentic. I’m not trying to start a false rumor, just showing you guys what i found” – from ebl4287 on ISS

To be honest, after going through what I had to go through last year with the Concords. I may just try to get these earlier. Every year it gets worse when XIs get released toward the end of the year.

STOP IT WITH ALL THIS HYPE!! This is why 500,000 people went out for the Concords and a bunch of people ended up getting hurt. IT'S FEBEUARY!! Quit this shit and stop hyping it up just because it's an XI. It's not even going to be the best JB release this year...

i cant believe how stupid the comments on here are, a fake solja boy, half the people fronting saying they have these, fucking clowns, itll be a nice release, but the quickstrike releases are getting murdered by these resellers

This was a given. I would love a pair since I never had the OG as a kid or the retro when I was in HS but refuse to stay on a line or pay resell prices. If I can connect online and grab a pair then cool if not its not the end of the world. Life goes on. More to life than kicks some of ya need to realize that and grow up. When you have a wife,a child and a fulltime job with bills sneakers don't mean as much.

The game today has made me bitter towards everything jordan. Yall keep on with this #swagg so I can charge yall 250 over retail w/ every retro lmao

I'm sorry everyone I didn't mean to say tha! I'm just pissed I'm not living the good life And I have a real gay name. Also I can't afford Jordan's so I take my anger out on those who can.

XI can come out with pre yellowed soles smeared in baby shit and they'll still sell smh

Word. Wednsday would be awesome. I miss those days is come out of school to go cop a pair with no line up just searching and patience. You had to be quick though cause if you were a second late it was a wrap. Just set it up so if it school hours and your underage you can't cop. Plus some folks are working. I'm sure they'll be less of a disaster. The whole Xmas time shit is ridiculous plus this is a summer/spring colorway
