Recently Sneaker News gave you a look at a possible packaging set-up for the Air Jordan XI Cool Grey Retro which is currently slated for a December 23rd release. Images of Space Jam-like plastic shoe-trees colored in grey hinted at a possible inspired packaging for this release, but these new images of an early pair debunks any theories regarding slide-out boxes, grey themes, or anything to play off the Cool Grey nickname. While the 2010 Cool Grey XI Retro does come included with a plastic shoe trees, the shoes itself will come housed in a regular Jordan Brand box – but at least the color of the packing matches the shoes, right? Perhaps some changes will be made – we’re still three months away from the official release date – so Sneaker News will keep you on top of things. Check out this gallery of images of the upcoming release and let us know if you feel Jordan Brand should’ve included a special box, or if it’s only the shoes that matter. via HK-Kicks.
