How could the retro release of the Air Jordan XI ‘Concord’ possibly get better? Well, how about encasing it in an incredible black wooden collector’s case complete with a large gold Jumpman etched into the boxtop? That’s exactly what arrived today, bringing some early holiday delight along with it. Inside the blacked-out box, a numbered seal indicates “1 of 23″, with a gold MJ thumb print to really make things official. The box’s first layer features a framed varsity-style Jumpman hoodie, lifting up to reveal the main event within – a crispy pair of 2011 Concords with the added bonus of a gold Jumpman-embroidered black towel, perfect for wiping down the patent leather once the shoes go into rotation. Unfortunately, this limited edition Holiday 2011 Pack will not be available for retail, but you can at least get a good look after the jump. Keep an eye out for your own pair of Air Jordan XI Concords this Friday, December 23rd when these undisputed classics make their long-awaited return to store shelves. Much thanks to the Jordan Brand family for dropping this down the chimney.
