This December, Jordan Brand brings us full circle with the legendary championship-clenching colorway that capped off the greatest season of all time and started a Christmas tradition that keeps the memories as fresh as 1996. The Air Jordan XI Retro returns in the black and Varsity Red configuration in just under four months, arriving just about four years after the XI/XII Countdown Pack marked the completion of the sprawling Air Jordan Collezione Packages. Let us know where these rank on your holiday shopping list after you’ve had a chance to see some new images, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for the official ‘Bred’ Air Jordan 11 2012 release date.
Air Jordan XI Retro
everybody STFU! and stop COMPLAINING about the QUALITY u rather pay $600 for og's that will fall apart on u in less then 1 month or just get the retros sheesh at the end of the day i bet all of u are gonna camp out for these its just a shoe COP OR NOT IM TIRED OF SEEING U PEOPLE HAVE A TIDDY ATTACK ABOUT THE QUALITY (DONT COMMENT THEN)
I'VE GOT THE COOL GREYS AND THE DMPS, NO REASON FOR ME BUY THESE. I MIGHT SCOOP UP A SZ 7 FOR MY OLD LADY THOUGH
So whats the real update. weve seen the picks a million times already. unless something changes why even bring it up?
i understand why people buy to resell - if you're 16, it's probably a better way to make $ than working a minimum wage job, but why do people buy them if they don't like the quality or look? you buy them to wear them. the fact a shoe is hyped makes me like it less, because then everyone else is wearing them.
I'm trying to decide between these and the Fire Red 5's coming out in January. I hate that the 5's will yellow but $185 for a shoe that hasn't changed since it's last release in 2008 doesn't seem worth it.
its hilarious how people are paying more $300+ for a shit quality product smh and sneaker news feeds the hype. good work guys. then u wonder why people get shot in front of sneaker stores for mass produced sneakers. im good on these still have an 08 cdp pair and 01 pair id rather save and buy another 01 pair or an OG pair than pay for this rehashed poor quality shoe
I'm tired of this B.S too! Whats the point of the actual article? other than the fact they have shown pictures that most of user regulars have seen so many times over the past few weeks!!! It's obvious that THESE SNEAKER "NEWS" sites are the ones behind CREATING THE HYPE, or obviously have something to do with it!! i wouldnt be suprised if they were getting slipped some cash for doing it...
These aren't coming out till december and they wrote ANOTHER crappy pointless few paragraphs to "HYPE" the shoe up... I'M sure most of us who really wanna cop for ourselves already know what they look like by now and have seen numerous shots of them...
Way to feed the dickrider resellers... SMFH
I don't really like these shoes and I know some people might get mad over this post, but I'm buying two pairs, so the first can pay for the second. Since I have a hookup, it's a guarantee that I'll get at least two pairs. Maybe someone would trade me a pair of these for some 5s that I don't have yet. Or I'll just make a huge profit by reselling.
Stop with everyone who talks about quality because people go crazy over the shoe and if some people dont get them they go and buy them for like 400 on ebay
The reason why they keep posting the same shoes or any of the things sn posts .is because different sites pay sn to submit things/and or promote them selves on sn.do you think there going to turn down any money?don't holder your breath.the same goes fore all these pop UPS on sn.again they pay to promote on sneaker news
Its a shame that the game has been reduced to people complaining about the resell before they can even get to enjoy the preview of a shoe... Of course not everyone will get a pair because almost everyone will want a pair... I have a feeling JB will overstock these as much as possible and also have a potential restock shortly after the initial release... So as much as resellers will get their 30+ pairs... I hope everyone else can land their single pair as well...
Just to caveat, we would not be mad at all at you guys if you did not post these anymore until they released. I think they are aware of these in Afghanistan and Iraq where they have no chance of getting these. I can see the headlines: "senseless violence as consumers "Bled for Breds"
I hope this does not happen of course but they hype is already ridiculous!
thank god you guys posted the same pics as youve been doing everyweek for the past 3 months!!!! real talk you websites contributr to a major part of the hype. i also feel bad for dumbass hypebeasts tht will pay over 300 for these shits, would rather hav cdp for cheaper. jb are corporate theives $5 every year, now we dont even get a box. imagine how its gana be in 5 more years.
we get it sneakernews. they're coming out. and by they doing this is bringing the hype more and more. im honestly not caring about these that much anymore because of all the hype and its gona be impossible now with all the hypebeast.
Honestly all they're doing is adding to the hype when they post one article a week about bred 11's it's def gonna be hell tryin to get these with all the hypebeasts
I have no issue with the price. Sure around $200 w tax for a shoe is a lot, but if designer jeans go for $100 then why can't the premier name in kicks sell its most hyped shoe for $200 when shoes are worth much more than pants? My issue is the lines. I'm not filthy rich, but i work hard and a week of my life is worth more than $200, as is a week in most people's lives. If you think it's a rip off don't buy it.
u can neva say u dont no wen da breds com out if ur on sneakernews dey got a ''new'' pic of dem everyday but its da same thing
WOW! They look... just like any of the other Bred 11s to release! Why even complain about leather. If u do u must spend your time rubbing your hand across your shoes instead of wearing em.
I just rocked my CDP's today, and here's a fact to the people that say they suck: aside from the peeling they are fine quality wise and are still holding up! Ill be passing on these, but u already know the release date is gonna be 12/23
@fly4fresh Looks like you just had a "Tiddy Attack" calm down and take caps locks off... Hahaha
I feel you but can you really blame Sneaker News?? They report on what the masses want. I bet you this shoe gets more daily traffic and comments than and Adidas, Reebok, Pumas, Converse, NB, etc. and most Nikes. But think about this, when was the last time you say a JB commercial for any retro?? This is how we find out all our info on upcoming releases. I'm really not feeling the sneaker game right now. A few more anticipated shoes for me and I'm officially done
@KrisCande from were and how much
@JoseFrias Perfect example as to what has to stop... DONT buy them if you dont LIKE them.. damn
@Kev Loco December 22 just like all the other ones
@JrSnackz i aint sayying its a bad idea, but thats a dream :-/
@RyanRoslyn yeah designer jeans which use premium raw denim materials as oppose to half assed nike made with lesser quality materials. i understand product going up due to inflation and the cost of raw materials used to make the shoe but the fact that nike does this shit every year and the quality gets lower and lower bothers a lot of people especiallly folks like me who had the original product and would love something close to it not perfect but close to it at least and recent products are way the fuck off
@RyanRoslyn im not saying that but isnt it funny how each they decide oh lets see what we can get away with and pad the price
@Grandiose i like the sarcasm lmaooo
idk if u ever had an OG or a 01 retro pair to compare them too but those 08 joints suck horribly they feel like cardboard and are stiff ass fuck compared to the older versions. i got them as a gift and kept them since they are my favriote jordan of all time but they do suck
The 23rd is a Sunday, soooo thats a negative. Probably the 22
@SirRocco I'm sure Jordan collectors have shoes they don't like. It's about having popular shoes. I want to expand my collection.
@TripleDtex because of the hype. Obviously what I like isn't what people like, but I am a collector and if these are are a hot buy, why not add them to my collection? And if I can buy a second pair to sell that will pay for the cost of both, then why not do it? It only makes sense to do that. :)
@Kev Loco Nah for the 11s the day if the week doesn't matter but 12/23 im almost positive. Cool Greg's were dropped on a thurs for example because that was 12/23 in 2010
