Just two days ago Sneaker News gave you a look at a quick side-by-side comparison of the Air Jordan XI Concord from 2000 and 2011. Based on the quality of the recent Air Jordan XI releases, what we saw in that comparison was no real surprise, and while some incessantly ranted about the blue tint or the ‘shape’ of the upper, the majority of our readers were overwhelmed with the undeniable beauty of the Concord XI. The truth is, these are an absolute must-have for sneakerheads who’ve lived through the Michael Jordan years and owned a pair of originals and the more recent members of the sneaker game who have respect and love for the Air Jordan legacy despite not seeing the man play. Check out a more thorough comparison of the Retro releases after the jump and stick and let us know if the Concord XI is the best sneaker release of the year. via kickz-lab.
