11 years of 11's: A History of Holiday Releases

The Air Jordan 11 is arguably the most polarizing offering from Jordan Brand of all time. Year after year, seasoned sneakerheads, and casual wearers compete to secure a pair in their size. Since their arrival in 1995, the general public has never seemed to get enough! Could it be the silhouette's luxurious appeal or deep-rooted history? Whatever the case may be, JB is well aware of the perennial hype the Air Jordan 11 incites. Electing to release a pair every Holiday Season is an ingenious marketing decision. Here's a look at some Air Jordan 11 drops throughout the years.

Although raffles, drawings, and the Nike SNKRS app have somewhat augmented the Air Jordan 11 buying experience, the sneaker's high demand is still troublesome. I highly doubt we'll ever see an end to holiday Air Jordan 11 releases. However, restocks and more plentiful shipments have decreased the amount of sneaker related crimes. In addition, unreasonably high resale prices have dropped substantially. Did you secure a pair of this year's 11's? If so, be sure to cop a RESHOEVN8R cleaning kit to extend their lifespan.
