The holiday season has arrived which brings about annual sneakerhead traditions. One particular tradition happens to be centered around the Air Jordan XI. Strategically scheduled to drop during the season of giving, Jordan Brand capitalizes off the general public's unwavering affinity for this silhouette. Bombarding newsfeeds with the current year’s forthcoming colorway, an insatiable demand is created. The Air Jordan XI Space Jam just so happens to be the subject of this year’s holiday sneaker frenzy. Contrary to most Air Jordan XI releases, there’s a chance your buying experience could be dramatically smoother. Attempting to meet growing demands, JB has chosen to release this sneaker in much larger quantities.
According to sources, major retailers such as Finishline and Footlocker intend to make these as widely available as the True Blue 3’s. Smaller boutiques have even begun securing pairs for customers as incentives for donating to charity. The idea of an accessible Air Jordan XI is nearly inconceivable. Chaotic lines, rioting, and occasional violence have become almost routine. Need I even mention the outrageous resale prices just hours after their release?! Think of this year’s plentiful supply as Jordan Brand’s push towards a more ethical sneaker culture. Could this approach mark the beginning of a new era of sneaker releases?
The Air Jordan XI Space Jam has been slightly altered from its previous release. Few would argue that the 2016 rendition isn’t every bit as spectacular, Blue tinted icy soles delay the dreaded yellowing effect. The number 45 appears at the heel, prompting nostalgia. Just as beautiful as the sneaker itself is the level of detailing in the box. Beautiful galaxy print drapes the cover along with the numbers 45 and 23. Look for these to drop for $220 this Saturday, December 10th!
