If you thought the hype for the Air Jordan XI ‘Cool Grey’ was a bit overrated or even blown out of proportion, check out the massive queue that lined up outside of NikeTown in New York City. Undeniably the biggest most widespread release of 2010, the Air Jordan XI ‘Cool Grey’ release was the must-have for the holiday season whether you were treating yourself to a nice gift or being one helluva a friend and hooking your boy up with a fresh pair. This particular release at NTNY was far more subdued than last year’s Space Jam release in Atlanta, during which an innocent Foot Locker was literally torn down by rabid fans, but with lessons learned and enough to go around, the Cool Grey release was a lot more cool and calm. Check out the release recap after the jump courtesy of FRESHNESS and let us know how crazy (or tame) the release was in your area – and if you haven’t picked up a pair yet, grab one now on eBay.
