Air Jordan XI “Bred” 2012 Teaser
It’s a fact that’s been obscured by the massive success of the last three Christmas drops and color trends surrounding each pair’s release (not to mention sixteen-plus years), but back when it entered the race as the third and final OG Air Jordan XI colorway, the prevailing sentiment was that ‘Bred’ was the best of the bunch, if not the single greatest basketball sneaker ever released. The black and red Eleven’s presence lingered longer than either of the white styles and it still ranks among the very best of all time, even if the culture shock we felt first seeing its patent leather mudguard has been adjusted by time and a renewed appreciation for some of Tinker Hatfield’s other masterpieces. And just like dudes could be seen wearing their ’96s toward the end of that decade, 2008′s Countdown Pack (not coincidentally, the most desired duo of the entire Collezione) is still a go-to style when sneakerheads dress to impress. The demand for this Christmas 2012 ‘Bred’ Air Jordan XI Retro figures to be in line with each of the previous releases, so be sure and stick with Sneaker News for updates and let us know if there’s anything on the horizon that has you equally excited.

Air Jordan XI Retro
I come ontop these websites to find out info on one of my hobbys. I just watch a video on another site about some jerk who stabbed someone over the Olypics last week. Here you guys are talkin trash to someone on the computer because they don't know every detail about every sneakers design concept. Maybe should think about the kid of person MJ was and what he represented. All this attitude being throw around like your something special or a shoe makes you something special. It doesn't and you look like a idiot becuase you think your better that others because you know something about the Jordan XI. Maybe this dude has a job and doesnt have time to read up on why Tinker made a shoe almost 20 years ago. GET REAL!
gonna find a way to get a pair without waiting in line with hypebeast and resellers. Ppl dont even collect anymore. These shoes are older than half the ppl resellin them. makes me sick!
@Lron85 I don't think you know these were made in 1995 right. So the people reselling are under 17 I think you don't know your shit sorry. And hypebeast means a poser that follows the crowd you know that right. Not people building hype. There's a difference. People building hype are promoters like people that review sneakers. Or straight nike.

@hiphopandbasketball Kid I think you're a hypebeast because apparently it seems you don't know the history about the shoes. Tinker made these shoes hoping that the legend which was mj to come back to the nba. And also it was the first sneaker to use carbon fiber and patent leather. It was also created for MJ to also be good as formal look like in a suit or just to ball in. SMH kid it seems like you're another follower because you don't know shit and you are complaining about the hypebeast. When posting this comment makes hype also. Come on clearly you don't know shit on these bred's also the carbon fiber is different from the Ogs and CDP look at it dumbass. Fake sneakerheads these days.

@TENDEROCKS @hiphopandbasketball Yeah, they camp out for a lot of things, mostly for LIMITED shit and to get something ASAP (like concert tickets). Ain´t nobody camp out for a t-shirt, a DVD or a sweater, shit that you can get anywhere, anytime. All Jordan are LIMITED, once they are sold out they are SOLD OUT, they don´t restock em like they would any Nike Blazers or White Air Force 1´s. That´s why some people didn´t get a chance to get them last year, retard.
@jturner808 And how can they resell? Cause they are LIMITED. If they weren´t LIMITED they couldn´t go for 3 or 4 times the retail price.
@zamieo people camp out to resell... make money... there not sneaker heads... most sneakers head should have these... might get another one to rock or keep on ice... way to be apart of the hype beast crowd kiddo
@hiphopandbasketball In your first comment you said "because this limited shit is gonna amp this up even more" Uhm, these aren't limited, lol. It's a GR.
JB really amping this shoe up, teaser on boy. This will be beyond madness. Im talking 3 week campouts ppl leaving jobs to collect umemployement so they kno they'll have a camp spot on hold. Despite how we kno that there gonna sellout the same haters who diss about quality will be hear too
@kickpush44 It's not the sneaker itself true sneaker enthusiast. Fake sneakerheads call themselves sneakerheads. Sneaker Enthusiast like I knows these are the sneakers that Tink made to persuade jordan back to the nba. And the sneaker was spoked by Jordan as the shoe that made him able to keep up with the young players. And Shaqs what you buy your sneakers from Kmart hahahaha.
Im buying two no I will not be selling these are my favorite jordans on all time wearing one on a regular basis and the other once I graduate from Auburn University as a sign of my love for shoes and engineering. I got on my 2008 CDP's I wear them everyone almosr 4 years old and still one of my favorite.
Sticking to online ordering this year. No more 9 hour camping in the cold, the store lying about how many pairs they have, dont even have my size shit this year, no sir.
@Steved23 the game is so f'd up now. i got my hands on a 11/12 package from 08 so im gonna go wit those this year. screw the line.
I have the CDPs, but a great way to distinguish these (aside from 23 peeling on heeltab) would be to have the white lining on the leather like the ogs. Thats would be frggin amazin
this release is gonna be worst of all. now that the people who bought the concords automatic think they become a sneakerhead by buying every jordan retro that comes out this year. they'll ruin this for sure.
@JustAthought2343 Amen my man! preach! all these little 15-20yr old wannabe sneakerheads are going to destory this release... all of a sudden everybody thinks their sneakerheads...are you serious?? seriously if you started "collecting" jordans last year then YOU are a wannabe sneakerhead cause how are you ganna jump on the banwagon when its hyped up your nothing but a follower...this generation of children are nothing but followers 1 of em decided to wear women jeans then all of them want to lmao...its sad...they actually think their sneakerheads man...its annoying to say the lease...it does NOT matter if you get every retro release that just makes you a hypebeast...little wannabe sneakerheads...can't wait til the hype dies...thats why im chilling out on jordan right now back opn my nike game for a mintue til this "FAD" is over....
@jordansince1988 Im 15, I've got shoes that i work my ass off for. Am I a "wannabee sneakerhead"? I don't buy shit for hype, I buy it if i like it. Check your facts.
@jordansince1988 @JustAthought2343 I'm 16 years old have a job and don't follow what other people say. I'm the first kid in my group of friends to have more than 5 pair of sneakers. And I've got shit for buying so many sneakers but fuck them thats what I love to do and they arent going to change my opinion. So it's not all the 15-20 year olds that are ruining the game. But I do agree that a lot are. As long as its limited they are going to jump on it
@jordansince1988 i'm 20. been in the "game" for 6 years. finally have a job where I can buy more than a few pairs a year, and i'm considered a wannabe? do i buy everything? no. do i buy things because they're hyped? hell no. do i buy the things i like? yes. and that's what everyone needs to do. buy the shoes you like, not the ones your friends like or the people on blogs like.
don't go lumping me in with all of the people that just got in the game, because it certainly just isn't people in my age group.
@ericmatenaer @TripleDtex Fucking up this game if you were really in this community six years ago they started rasing their prices that time what a fucken liar. Come on stop lying 2004 Jays were 125 and 2008 jordans began rising their prices and only now you know it's fucked up huh. You fucken poser. I'm a really sneaker enthusiast and I can say you suck at lying.
@ericmatenaer What a fucken liar kid I'm only 18 and I been collecting jordans since i was 10 the first sneaker I got was the Jordan 7 olympic the first retro 2004. On August 21. If you were in the game for that long why are you call the community a game what a poser. You really do buy things for hype you idiot if jordan never wore these shoes these wouldn't be in the markets you have to know you shit. I'm not hating if you really were in the fake game hahaha you wouldn't be talking shit you would be happy to hear what the guy is saying. I am but I just hate how you lie about being in the game wtf game really. It's a fucken community if you ever come to a convention and I'll leave you a table to display your sneakers from 2006. I've been in the community for 8 years I know when there's a poser and you're one of them. Ask Jumpmanbostic and Jstar and Mache and even nightwing the all know who I am period
@TripleDtex I would do odd jobs and babysit and stuff but that would only mean a pair every month or two. Now I'm able to get what I want. Sorry I'm not old enough to have bought every Jordan that has released in the past 20 years. But I'm definitely not the one fucking this game up.
@ericmatenaer @jordansince1988 how you been in the game 6 years and you just now have a job to be able to buy shoes? Smdh you mean your mom and dad been in the game 6 years and you just getting in it.
lol great.... i really hope they turn out good and i really hope i can cop without having to camp for 394934747474 hours
a teaser for a shoe that been seen a million times?? why?? hell just scroll down and to the ebay section below the post
Yall thought them Concords release was crazy?Some of yall gonna have a rude awakening. This release will be *Armageddon, *WW3. Im coppin mines early to avoid the BS. I aint tryin to go Rambo for a pair sneakers.
Copping two pairs. If possible. I had the chance to buy the Concords last year but my wallet was hurting and I decided not to. When I came around a couple hours later they were all sold out... So I´m making up for that by buying two pairs, deadstocking one and rocking the other pair.
