One of the most popular and celebrated sneakers of all time is set for a return this year. The Air Jordan 11 “Concord” has been rumored for a holiday ’18 retro for months, and now the world finally has a release date.
Mark your calendars — the iconic colorway returns on Dec. 8, and the retail price is set at $220.
It’s one of the most beloved sneakers of all time, and the combination of white ballistic mesh and black patent leather turns as many heads now as it did when it debuted on retired NBA icon Michael Jordan’s feet during a 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinal game where his Chicago Bulls faced the Orlando Magic. Considering this massive popularity, it won’t matter how many pairs Jordan Brand releases in December for their first return since 2011, because they’re definitely all going to sell out.
This latest retro edition of the Air Jordan 11 Concord will also feature the “Remastered” construction by Jordan Brand, which includes a higher cut to the patent leather mudguard to make them more accurate to the original 1995 version. As pictured in a Photoshop rendering above, it’s still unknown if the 2018 version of the “Concord” will feature the standard “23” on the heels or “45” (Jordan’s jersey number when he returned from retirement in 1995), much like the “Space Jam” Air Jordan 11 that was released in 2016.
Stay tuned for more information on the Air Jordan 11 “Concord” 2018 retro as it breaks.
