While the ‘Blackout’ edition that popped up a short while back would probably be the most legendary of all Air Jordan XI samples, it was but a single shoe. And given how many Air Jordan XI ‘Eyelet’ mockups we’ve seen over the years, that variation might be the most widely discussed unreleased Eleven. Add it to the most recent pair that released (and on the DMP version, no less!) and we’re looking right now at another design that’s going to have Jordanheads buzzing.

These Air Jordan 11 DMP samples were constructed in August, 2005 in advance of the VI/XI Defining Moments Package launch in January of the following year, but these spell ‘JORDAN’ across their nylon eyelets unlike the pristine released version. The seller notes that some of the letters are slightly scuffed as a result of him pealing off the first coat of shrinkwrap in search of a proof of authenticity, so while this deadstock pair isn’t a perfect 10, its subtle blemishes offer further proof of its status as an elite collector’s item. Examine all these details and more below, then check out the auction from depeche23mode on eBay.

The eyelets caused blessing onto the mesh and they were recalled last mintue abd that's why the DMP dropped in January instead of summer/fall of 05. It dropped in 06. Some pairs still made it to the final release though. I knew a dude that had a pair. I'm so glad my version was the final product and not these.

The 23 on the back does appear to be wide and disproportioned like most fakes.

These aren't rare. What is the big deal... they are ugly anyway, hence the reason they were finally scrapped.

Thank you, I was a bit confused as to why these were samples because I actually know 3 people who were able to cop the package that still had the JORDAN on the eyelets. A couple of packages did release and were sold with the eyelets but now it's almost impossible to find a pair and second it is close to impossible to find someone that has worn them.

what do you mean there's not much wrong with them...?

Jeremy K

he mentioned the flaw in the description... the inside of the left shoe has the J and part of the R missing on the letters of the eyelits. This was due to the shrink wrap sticking onto the letters

Eric

not true, the eyelits would do this no matter, they bled and that is why they removed them off majority of the shoes
