December is the ultimate month for anything Air Jordan and that’s because ever since 2009, Jordan Brand has rolled out every iconic Air Jordan 11 colorway, including a few new renditions. This year, Jordan Brand plans to roll out another Air Jordan 11 Retro, paying homage to the Chicago Bulls and their 1996 record of 72-10. the annual return of the Air Jordan 11. Instead of a returning OG colorway, this year we get the “72-10” edition of the iconic shoe, featuring a luxe leather makeover inspired by the historic 72-win season by MJ and the Chicago Bulls for the 1995-96 NBA season.
For this brand new version of the Air Jordan 11, a thick premium leather replaces the mesh seen on previous releases. Nubuck eyelets hold the laces down, while an iridescent patent surrounds the entire shoe from front to back. Lastly, an embossed Jumpman replaces the stitched version, as well as a different tag that reads “Inspired by the greatest season ever played” behind the tongue.
