It was just about six weeks ago that Sneaker News showed you a dope special edition Air Jordan XI Low ‘Space Jam’ created for Michael himself, and now we see that the AJXI SMUs don’t stop with established colorways. Check out this insane Air Jordan 11 Low His Airness wore at a recent Michael Jordan Flight School Event (recent enough that we see the likes of the LeBron 9 Low and Zoom KD IV on attendees’ feet). They’ve got a blocking pattern similar to the upcoming ‘Johnny Kilroy’ AJ9, which seems fitting given that this pair’s origins are also something of a mystery. Check back with us regularly to see if this impressive Chicago Bulls style ever makes it to retail and click through to see more photos of what’s instantly one of the rarest Air Jordan designs ever.

there has been tons of things "the man" has had on that not only myself and others have deemed questionable, this is another one. Just because a 49 year old man wears it, it doesnt mean i have to like it. I am a Lakers and Kobe fan and that man has worn some questionable things too. These will sit on shelves, they are ugly. @Dr Kumar Singh MD @Tennessee1257
I'm trippin off how comments are made about these looking fake and having bad color blocking when Micheal Jordan, the Man himself, has the shoe ON Himself. Must be some "Ho-be" fans
loook at all those xi lows for rape i mean sale on ebay ^^^^ lmao .by the time they actually sell em they'll be yellow and red.
what hypebeast wrote this article?? You couldnt try any harder to to hype these up, they are weak period, they look like flea market fakes.
@Grandiose who said anything about "you" liking the shoe?? Some made comments about them looking like fakes. I'm pretty sure that Micheal Jordan does not wear fake versions of his own shoe. As far as the your color blocking comment, I should have been more specific by stating "Hey, to each his own.". Btw, if these release next year, I'll bet my ridiculous annual salary that these will sell out just as all before them have in the last few years.
@Tennessee1257 of course they will sellout limited production+hypebeast = auto sellout these sneakers still aint anything special.
@DwizzyVelasquez Again, I never said a thing about these being special. None of them are "special" for that matter. I can take my 11 lows and dye the uppers black and have the shoe in hand right now. All I'm saying is that MJ don't wear fakes and if they released, they'll sell out, period.
