Thought you were an expert and/or connoisseur of unreleased Air Jordan samples? Sneaker News flipped over that table when we showed you the Air Jordan XI ‘Blackout’ sample last Friday, and the pure beauty of that sample was made rather lucid – the highest bid of the shoe is currently swimming around the compact car/state college tuition range. As the saying goes, “If you build it, they will come” bodes particularly true for sneakerheads, because we’re certain that those who have participated in one of the craziest sneaker auctions in history are the hardcore of the hardcore and don’t take laces and soles too lightly. However, we’re about to throw a slight wrench into the situation, because it appears those Blackout samples aren’t exactly a one-of-one (these days, is there truly a one-of-one anyway?). Here’s a new set of images of another pair of the Air Jordan XI ‘Blackout'; if you’re mesmerized that more than on pairs exists, it’s even more of a mind-fudge to know that this second pair is also a size 10.5. Continue on for another look at this jaw-dropping sample courtesy of eBay seller btn_16 and if you’re still looking to throw your bids in, get in on the action on the only listing available now on eBay.

100% fake. If anyone has Concorde, breds, or space jam 11's look at the bottom and you will be like OMG they really are fake. Sneakernews shouldn't promo fake shit. Amd these are fake. I wouldn't wear them if I found them in a dumpster. If Jordan brand releases this color way awesome but I bet they have a carbon fiber shank not checkered plastic.
THESE ARE FAKES.... LOOK AT THAT CHECKERED CARBON FIBER ON THE SIDE!!!! Im surprised none of yall "sneaker heads" cant tell smh
http://loud-mouse.com/2012/02/16/ballin-out-of-co... I actually made a bid on these. Check out the screen shot.
I got a gut feeling that with all of these samples of the XIs, that JB could POSSIBLY be coming up with a new colorway.
could these have been planed to come out as the primio bin 23 11's???the inside of the sneaker has the same fabric they used in the premio 13's, 9's etc...It could be a possibility...remember these are a sample....
We're goin to use the same material as the "Cool Greys" but more renewed outsole... This is just the sample folks... Watch out for updates...
dear hypebeast, take your dirty concords to a shoe repair shop & get a $20 black dye job & you can have em too,did it to the olive 9's a few years back.
Maybe these are signs of new colorways to come from Jordan brand for the XI's. I mean they have been doing it for every other numbered jordan so why not these.
the checkered carbon fiber means not fake for sure, how can you ppl say these are fake? !it's just a sample , SN should cancel ur post, do you think they would post a fake with no clue if they are actually legit... cheap sneakerhead u don't even see the tag is ok and the carbon fiber isn't plastic, just cause breds,concords aren't like that..
No @freakazoid the black cement fours are releasing on black Friday it's confirmed on the FOotlocker launch list
alreddy got tha cherry lows. Alot of XI CWs would def suck.. but a navy patent mid or reverse Concord would HELLA DOPE
I know that idiot I was responding to the original post when he said that these black out 11's Gona drop. I know the black cement 4a dropping black Friday. Copping them hard.
