A classic Air Jordan 11 style could be making its way back to retailers in 2021.

Social media leaker accounts @Soleheatonfeet and @zSneakerheadz shared a mock-up photo of the iconic Michael Jordan signature shoe in the “Cool Grey” iteration. The look debuted in 2001 and would release again in 2010. According to the accounts, the Air Jordan 11 Retro “Cool Grey” is reportedly releasing during the 2021 holiday season.

The mock-up photo reveals a shoe featuring nubuck uppers paired with matching patent leather overlays, while white accents cover the Jumpman branding at the ankle collar and white shoelaces. Finishing off the look a wrehite midsoles and translucent rubber outsoles.
