As we’ve come to expect each year since the CDPs in 2008, the holiday season culminates in arguably the most anticipated release of the entire calendar with the annual Air Jordan XI. It’s the ‘Gamma Blue’ Jordan 11 this year, and continuing a tradition that began with the 2009 ‘Space Jams’ is a special deluxe slide-out package including plastic shoe trees. Both take on the signature shade as echoed on the heel Jumpman embroidery; does seeing the Gamma Blue XI in its full glory make you want them even more? Stick with Sneaker News for the latest as we approach the December drop and act fast to get a pair early from ajaddiction on eBay
Air Jordan XI
Color: Black/Gamma Blue-Varsity Maize
Style Code: 378037-006
Release Date: 12/21/13
I enjoy the hardships trying to get a pair at retail so fuck all these get it early releases I'll still have 2 pair
So what was last yrs excuse for not bringin out the bred 11s with the slide out box jb some fukboyz ...fuk wot anybody say 2 I wanted dat box nikka
Nike is just building up everyone's thirst for retro colorways by releasing this new AJ11 colorway. Same thing with the new foams.
They do special packaging for this SHIT! But couldn't do it for Breds?
F**k that I can't get jiggy to this shit! Lol
11's are HELLA UGLY! Bring back the Original air jordans that have not been retroed beside the cdp's like the 15's 16's 17's 18's and all the way to the 23's. Thats why I rarely buy jordans now, especially with reebok, fila, ewings, and nike dropping classic retros
People hating on these make no sense...these may not be an og colorway like all of u wanted, but yall cant sit here nd say that they ugly or the cw is ugly, cuz its clearly not, just by the design of the 11s its pretty damn hard to make an "ugly" cw, i hope all the hate means they gone sit there for a lil to have real heads who'll wear em actually cop em...idk just my 2 nickels
I do love the packaging but i'm just not feeling this colorway. If you're looking for a mostly black AJ11 silhouette, stick with the Space Jams. They blow these away... These lookin' like they ugly twin sis lol
@Fernand62053217 dont nobody want them ugly shits thats a waste of they time.
@Sole_2_Sole u forgot about re sellers bruh
@Sole_2_Sole Doubt it lol. Almost any J's these days sell out in a blink of an eye smfh.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite As usual we agree. Not bringing out the Columbias this year and giving us the nice box for these average shoes vs the Playoffs is just completely illogical.
@DC_MH88 i don't hate them. i just feel that nike should have already started listening to their customers..people want to see OGs.
@DC_MH88 Nothing wrong with trying new colorways on XIs, I'm just seriously disappointed in these. And I'm not one of those cats that's gonna throw out that "XIs are overrated" line (I've got 4 pairs). I was just hoping for more this year (Columbias or at least a more adventurous new colorway). Not hating, man. If you like 'em, cop 'em. I'm sure a lot of folks will.
@NickBartzis Convince me with a pair of Columbias.
@NickBartzis lol nike has been looking at the forums and comments, they gotta find a way lure some people in hahaha
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite what person wouldn't pay 200 for the columbias the resal price for a pre-owned pair is higher than that, hopefully no bad quality though
While sneaker heads wait for JB to get it together. I hit up 2niceCustoms to get it together and that will happen soon. None of the remaining releases other than the Glove retro and the OG BRED 1s interest me so I don't mind getting these to fill the void this year.
and i am not sure if this box makes the situation better when this is not considered as a retro box..
