air jordan 11 releases in december A Look Back at December Air Jordan 11 Releases

Sneaker buying is a year-round process with no specific weekend or occasion outranking the other by much,  but there’s no date more globally recognized than the annual release of the Air Jordan 11 Retro. Since 2008, Jordan Brand has offered up the iconic shoe every December, with each drop taking form in an original and classic Retro colorway. This Saturday’s release sticks out like a sore thumb in that the fresh “Gamma Blue” colorway that has no true connection to the visual anatomy of the Jordan Brand beast. Still, the decision to go “new” rather then “old” (many projected the Columbia to be this year’s release) may speak louder to the newer generation of sneaker fanatics – the one that likely had no recollection of Michael Jordan playing in a game.

Still, despite the evolving era of Jordan collectors, the release of the Air Jordan XI is still one of the most anticipated moments ever year. The infamous tradition has garnered a controversial reputation over the years thanks to the chaos that has ensued during in-store releases, but those who have been fortunate enough to obtain the patent leather beauties liken the event to a triumphant epilogue to a story filled with a year’s worth of sneaker releases. For those who may have forgotten the short history of this institution of the sneaker game, or better yet, those who will make the Gamma Blue their first-ever Air Jordan 11 purchase, we have a quick summary of the history of December Air Jordan 11 releases below.

To this day I never understood why every 11 got the special packaging treatment except the Bred 11's which are arguably the most popular of them all. They got that weak ass common retro box. That said, the special packaging on the Fear and 5's are pretty damn dope. Just sayin'...

It was rumored the "Columbia" 11 was set for release in December of 2012 then was pulled last minute and in turn released the "Black/Red" 11.

Great, we have an internet thug on our hands.  Do us all a favor since you're bout that life, and post a link to your Facebook page (w/out the private settings) so we can see the man (or BITCH) behind the keyboard.
