The Mayans were right that something big was going to happen on 12/21/12, but even those ancient math masters couldn’t have predicted a formula like 72-10 = perfection. That happened sixteen years ago when Tinker Hatfield produced one of the most cherished of all Air Jordan designs for what happened to be the greatest team effort in NBA history. Michael Jordan’s return to dominance was punctuated by a fourth Championship won in this ‘Bred’ Air Jordan XI, a masterpiece whose influence cannot be overstated; a celebrated Retro release in 2001, a surprising ‘package’ delivery in 2008, and another singular re-issue on Friday quickly summarizes the Bred XI’s journey to store shelves, and while this lovely gallery presented to you by Sneaker News reiterates something we’ve known for some time (which is where we’ve gotta be on Friday morning), it should only finalize the notion that the Air Jordan XI ‘Bred’ just might be the greatest of all-time.
The Air Jordan XI itself was an incredible masterpiece that took the world by storm; celebrities wore them to red carpet events and musicians wore them on stage as the glossy patent leather proved to be a fine replacement for classic dress shoes. Undeniably the most ‘luxurious’ Air Jordan in history, Friday’s release continues a newly established tradition of Air Jordan XI re-issues in December. Do you agree or disagree that the Air Jordan XI ‘Bred’ is the best ever? Enjoy the gallery below and chime in at the comments section.
