What were you doing on the twenty-third of December of last year? Did you happen to be at a Foot Locker during the Air Jordan XI Space Jam Release? Sneaker News deemed the Air Jordan XI Space Jam as the grandstanding shoe of our Top 30 Sneakers of 2009, and the upcoming Air Jordan XI 25th Anniversary is already in the running for a spot on this year’s list.
The Air Jordan XI 25th Anniversary resembles the original Columbia XI colourway, but it isn’t an exact replica. First and foremost, the 25th Anniversary Jordan XI lacks a Jumpman logo on the usual heel, which is an aberration from the Air Jordan line as a whole. It also lacks Columbia Blue colorblocking that would even qualify it to be called a Air Jordan XI Columbia Retro. So which Air Jordan XI of ’09 and ’10 will be your favorite? Check out the large collection of side-by-side comparison shots after the jump and chime in with your two cents. Air Jordan XI lovers do not want to miss this. via Kenlu.
