Not much needs to be said about this sneaker release. The most iconic colorway on a ground-breaking sneaker returns yet again, touching down on the final weekend before the big Holiday on December 25th. But is this sneaker the centerpiece of Jordan Brand’s Holiday 2012 roll-out? With the Kilroy Pack and the Air Jordan IV ‘Thunder’ creating a ton of buzz, the Bred XI might be ‘second chair’ in this season’s big-time shopping period. We’ve got a detailed set below, so take a look and let us know if these are in fact the best of the Holiday’s bunch, or if you’ve got something else in mind, let us know.
Man I wanna get these but knowing the history of these fuckkk super hard 2 coppp with the concords last year crazy ppl camping 2 days before the release Jesus Christ I can already see that $900 ebay listing
always wanted these but never could afford them ......will be coping 2 pair to make for lost time lolol .....
BTW the reason for them not putting up dates on certain shoes is to eliminate buyers (people who resale) and the attention . this way a parent could see they kid get back home safe #IJS
Complain Complain Complain! These look gorgeous, I WILL be getting a pair. But does anyone know the EXACT release date?
Kinda disappointed it doesn't have a milky toe but i can live with it, well one of the last jordans im getting
then im out.. had a good run. Hypes and resellers can have it.
I don't understand how no one already owns a pair of these. You should already have them if you claim to be a "Sneakerhead" or "Collector" or whatever. They just dropped in 08.
People are gonna go apeshit over these but the Olympic 6 release wasn't crazy at all? Not saying releases should be crazy but these are basic sneakers, and this time around 3-4 people will die for them, sad but true.
Gonna be a battle between the Resellers vs. the Hypebeast, who will win this year's war?? Stay tuned. . . .
Madness will ensure no doubt. I have a pair of bred 11s, so I'm not getting this years edition. If the release for the Concords were any indication, we'll see some news-material for these. As of now, I'm hoping i can cop the thunders.

@dsuaveallday I still have the 2001 pair but my foot is WAY to big to fit them now.
@dsuaveallday not everyone had the funds to get shoes when they previously dropped nor are they willing to pay the resale price. The title of sneakerhead isn't always the same for everyone.
@dsuaveallday GOT INTO IT IN 09 . satisfied ?
@dsuaveallday A sneakerhead isn't about what you own, its more of a mental/love thing, but you prolly wouldn't understand that
@dsuaveallday i dont have a lot of shoes i didnt start working til 2008 when i was 20. im 24 now and still would love to have a lot of shoes that havnt been retros in 4 plus years. ive had a chance to get a pair from 01 but im not one of those people who just busts a nut over a shoe thats a decade old
@23kicksfor23chicks yea when i got ma 6s it was really calm but it was uh few cops present .
@crownmeking314 its shit like that ... 2 pairs of the same shoe and 1 pair of feet . then one pair to look at .... #DUMBSHIT
@jfin3 it was always just a rumor like a package with the Breds. They're not coming out this year, so my guess is dec 201:
@Kev Loco thats where i live though . all 11s usually drop on this date
@YungDav3 So u mad cause I got a sneaker plug and I can double up & you have to camp out or fight in a line to MAYBE get your pair?? All I can say is build better relationships with the retailers in your area my man! Don't hate the player hate the game! Beside if y'all all could double up you would so go eat a glass sandwich if you wanna send hate my way!
@YungDav3 I'll just go out and ask this weekend to be sure
