So as more information of the upcoming Air Jordan XI in the famed Black/Red colorway unfolds, the chatter surrounding the nature of the looming release begins to get louder and louder. Starting things out with a ‘bang’ of sorts is when Sneaker News got direct confirmation from Jordan Brand regarding the controversial price-increase of the pinnacle of annual Retros, but the recent development of the shoes hitting stores sans-special box (introduced in 2009 as part of the Space Jam release) has kept the tangential discussions afloat. Today, we have a first detailed viewing of the 2012 version of the Air Jordan XI ‘Bred’, so if you have anything to add to the discussion, fill us in with your thoughts below. Photos: hupu
Air Jordan XI Retro
these look pretty good. hope the mesh is soft and not like the cardboard crap on the cdp..those were garbage. kinda skimpy on the PL but overall looking good! i will cop!
So i guess this is the start of seeing New Images for the Breds every other day right? And another thing: you people who complain about the shoe be quiet because 1) you're doing nothing to solve the problem 2) You're most likely going to cop 3) Its and early release pair smh you people are so annoying if you put that much effort into complaining on a sneaker website you should write a letter to JB/Nike and let your voice be herd there are enough of you to maybe change something around.
CONCORD is beautiful release but this is history of MJ. can not wait
All this about "this is off" "that is off" Haul Ass!! they are still going to sell out which is all that matters. Big Money, who cares if you get shot, stabbed, slapped, or jabbed. This has been a year of ultimate hype and supply could not keep up with demand. This is July and we are seeing Bred images already, Damn. What about two more pair of 4's, four pair of 9's Raptors, 6/7 pack.....along with Lebons, KD's, Penny's, and any other shoe they can put a galaxy print or some bright ass colors on to get us shelling out cash. Recession? Bitch please! People just choose to spend money on what they want and not so much what they need. We are a spoiled ass Nation. Give us a million and we will ask "why not 2?" Never happy, just always want find something to whine, cry, and bitch about.
All that being said, I can't wait for these to drop!
I wish all the hate actually meant something. because then that would make these easier to get. eh. hopefully I get a pair though. I would love to wear them.
these look like absolute sh*t. they are early samples though so im not really worried. i do like the return to the higher cut like the og's
I'm pretty sure these aren't really them. If the Concords and Cool Greys had a milky toe cap why doesn't this?
If u aint buying them then dont complain, I mean goddamn it only july are u ppl that far up yall cant come down. Theres always 1st, middle, & final production on shoes. These could either who knows but I know millions of ppl want them regardless but if a shoe pisses u off to the T that bad just overlook the article. Most of yall keep saying the samething yet alone yall still buying JB products. C'mon ppl there just the breds let alone shoes we've seen over again. Give ur opinion but the constant bashing for the samething is ridiclious. Please ppl stop internet banging too, these shoe fights are sad. Ever since these breds popped up ppl been going HAM on one another. Really are we really bout to scoop that low every year. Peace & chill out
They look a bit higher than the pair that I previously had. But it is what it is. I will not be purchasing these so it's no big deal.
@Cut Up Well DAMN! I absolutely have nothing to add to this except... Well Said!
@Cut Up This is as real a response as their is...definitely agree with all this..good shit man
