Air Jordan XI ‘Blackout’
Just when you thought you saw it all – the PEs, the one-of-ones, the Team Exclusives that we’ve featured on Sneaker News time and time again – this majestic sample pops up at the height of Air Jordan XI superstardom. We’ll give you a second to wipe the drool off your chin. This Air Jordan XI ‘Blackout’ sample features a full-black exterior, with black patent leather, a black mesh upper, black leather heel, and more interesting, the black midsole – something we’ve never seen on an Air Jordan XI until the women’s IE Low release of 2007. This blackout sample is definitely more ‘Batmobile’ than it is ‘Lawnmower’, exuding a sneaker sex appeal that’ll have the sneakerhead circles buzzing and uplifting excitement once again, acting as ‘yang’ to the Silver Anniversary’s ‘yin’. Will these release? Based on the shoetag, it appears that these were destined for a Holiday 2010 release (possibly a Black Friday release), but for now, there doesn’t seem to be any plans for arrival. You can, however place your bid on these samples, but we’ll give you a heads up that this particular bidding experience will be slugfest. Check out the detailed images below and go ahead to the listing from brokeonjordans on eBay.
no plans for arrival?? WTF r u kidding me these r fucking beautiful i hope they release nxt year since theres a retro 11 every year these or the columbias
If u dont like em don't buy them. people like what they like but they shouldn't be bashed and disrespected for liking something.
This is very funny! But I don't want to spin the thing only once a day. Why not more? People could get acitdded to it very easily
OMFG - $11k ++ !!!! Yall stone cold blackout ninjas be crazy with you deep pocket signing bonuses. Imagine the disappointment when they general release in November for two bills. Silly.
WOW. Nearly $8000 for these. People actually bidding that amount of REAL money? Crazy. As in... your a moron for paying that for a pair of shoes. 1. People just gonna see you and go "thats the guy that paid an idiotic amount of money for some shoes"...(probably some rapper/DJ or "sneakerhead" that REALLY needs to show their 'swag' to try and make friends/contacts)... and 2. You KNOW Jordan Brand are just gonna see the hype(not that they probably dont all ready know that they can release ANY XI and kids will go ape shit for em), and just bring out a release of these... in which case we will ALL have them. For $170 retail.
Black on black, it's so simple, magnificent in every angle....why couldn't they think of this shit earlier?
I can see both sides of this argument....pics don't really do it justice but that murdered out is always fresh to me...me personally I been wearing all black everything so this falls in line with what I like...but the jumpman looks like something you would see on some flea market fakes. But if its a sample then its not gonna be the best construction anyway...its a good idea that would probably be better executed if JB really wanted to release these.
Yeah these would be a great summer release, might even rock these in the club if they drop. Just sick
Might I remind you all that these are a sample, and that the owner of these most likely got them for free! The quality on these are low as well because they are a sample. Now with all this said. I would love JB to release these, probably the best Non-OG CW. I'm sure they're only gonna get better from the SAMPLE! Hell look at the Galaxy Foams! Who knew right?
these are very nice and if they make a new color way of the 11s like they have been doing with other models these should be it!
This is I've pair of 11s that I WILL NOT OWN. not really feelin em. Imo they need that white midsole. Hell even a grey midsole may not look bad
lol i love all black shoes, darken the sole, and maybe lighten the jumpman and youve got a double up for sure
Why is it that every post of a new shoe has some dick saying "let the hype begin"? Thanks for the completely useless post which I am now dumber for reading!
I don't know if you know this, but all the comments you put have more thumbs down than thumbs up. And why do you put sperms at the end every time? fag
