Wait a second! Wasn’t the big Air Jordan XI Retro release for 2011 supposed to be the OG ‘Concord’ colorway from 1995?! For those of you who have your heart set on the original Elevens, this news has no bearing on what should figure to be Holiday 11′s single biggest release, though it is directly connected to the shoe that took that title two years ago. The Air Jordan XI ‘Space Jam’ was such a massive hit that they beat out Kanye West’s first Air Yeezys to top our Sneaker News Top 30 of 2009 and now they’re in even rarefied-er air now, thanks to a series of deadstock pairs soon to arrive at Asian retailer RMKstore. It’s pretty uncommon to see such a treasure trove available from a retailer so long after the original (instant sell-out) release, and although their site has no indication of price or quantities yet, you can inquire with them here regarding info and placing a reservation. If you’re still looking for a pair and dont want to go the overseas route, you can check to see what the market says they’re worth and grab a pair on eBay.

Nike SB’s been all about the controversial topics lately. There was the scrapped release of the Nike SB Dunk High ‘Cheech & Chong’, the apparent ‘Purple Haze’ Dunk High that was scrapped back in ’09, and now the Nike SB Dunk Low inspired by the Sneaker News #1 shoe of 2009 – the Air Jordan XI Space Jam. These new comparison shots make it even clearer that the Space Jam was the obvious muse to this new colorway, and if you’re a fan of both the Jumpman and the Skate wing of Beaverton, OR, these are without a doubt a must-have once they release in May. Are these already in your sights, or will you pass on these in favor of an original colorway? Check out the new side-by-side as well as detailed images of the SB Dunk below and let us know what you think. via Kenlu.

It’s been just under nine years since yours truly nearly died in an icey storm on my way to cop the first run of this legendary sneaker. In all seriousness, the trip was a bit longer than normal because the weather cleared the mall parking lot, but it sorta ‘paved’ the way for me to cop them after school; I got the second to last pair in the store. Even recalling that story for you now makes me a little anxious, so it’s totally reasonable that some of you who absolutely needed these already secured them.
The Air Jordan 11 Space Jam Retro is still set for a late December drop, but you can already get yours with the full packaging, shoe trees and all from Osneaker, plus get $5 off when you use the code “sneakernews” (no quotes) at checkout. Whether you buy them today or not, be sure to click the jump below for some really well lit photos that show you exactly what to expect from your pair, and check out some much bigger shots as the first of our new series of Sneaker Wallpapers.
