Air Jordan XI – Black – Varsity Red – White
We recently posted the question: Is the December anchor known as the Air Jordan XI Retro or the child-designed Air Jordan Doernbecher the must-have Retro release of the year? While the XI leads in the ‘iconic’ category by leaps and bounds, the Doernbecher might be a hotter item as the current market value of recent Air Jordan Doernbecher designs demand quite a hefty stack of coin. Regardless, either addition to your collection is one you won’t regret, so for the purists out there, the Doernbecher V might be worth overlooking in order to make room for these classics – the kicks Jordan wore en route to his 4th NBA Title. So what’s your call? Bred XI or Doernbecher V? Photos: sole-awesome
Air Jordan XI
I want these of course, who doesnt want xi's. A friend handed his pair down to me when i was in high school. Unfortunately they were stolen. So I have to get another pair. From what I am hearing though, these aren't coming with the slide box.
No complaints about these from the looks of these pics. They look as close to OG as the previous retros when it comes to shape and color tone of red. I just pray the 23 doesn't peel so easy on the back tab....
anyone notice how the jumpman doesn't match the 23 in the back? Thats how a lot of people tell fakes from authentics...i just thought it was weird
much better than the cdp2008..those were trash..these look good from shape, brighter red bottoms. hope the mesh is softer and i am game! count me in..must cop!!!
Are you border line retared the CDP was way better then this this shoe almost look infrared look at the jumpman way off@Jonathan Broder
@airjordan1980 i heard they are coming next year
@asdfjkln64 i would of liked to see the columbias in 2012, then the snakeskins in 13, blackouts in 14, then drop the Bred XI's in 15.
Yea nike loves all the free press they get for the chaos they create. They're super reckless and irresponsible with their high profile releases. Thats the difference in the sneaker game from the 90s. They made enough for people who really wanted the shoes. The limited quantities BS has given birth to the parasitic resellers, the increase in Bgrades/fakes/variants in the secondary market, hypebeasts(much of them being the resellers), and camping. Thank you for ruinin the game and the shoe buying experience nike. FUCK YOU
@airjordan1980 columbia come out ay week b4 those breds ..
@donadamsky i have to wait another yr for the columbias =(
@airjordan1980 or just drop all the xi's in one year like back in 00-01. but if jb was gonna do that they shouldve in 09-10 when they did the SJ's
@MartinD44 @DarnellHamlet I memba that back in the day when you can always find ya size and always had extra and always restocked for the first month of the release. But times change. I jus hope they make a decent amount of my size. So far ive had really no problems but times change.
