To celebrate 20th year anniversary of the Space Jam movie where it debuted. Jordan Brand releases a retro version with remastered makeover. Inspired by the pair that Michael Jordan rocked at the 1995 NBA Playoffs. It seemed a higher cut than the earlier released Jordan XI in both 72-10s and BReds colorway. The usual Jordan 11 Retro patent leather and the mesh in the upper will both be in black hue. Details will include a heel number 45, instead of MJ’s Jersey number 23. Smoky bluish outsole and the regular white midsole.
As with the recent Jordan 11 releases, the Space Jam pair will come in special packaging. The box has a Looney Tunes theme. The cover graphic of the box lid is inspired by the Warner Brothers movie Space Jam . You can find an abstract depiction of the arms of Bugs Bunny and the Monsters wrapped around each other. These are forming MJ’s NBA Chicago jersey 23 over a dark silhouette of the his MLB White Sox Jersey 45. The packaging design will have the usual ‘XI’ pattern on the plastic cover. These shows in checks or polka dotted design in the third layer of the box. This 3-layer boxing in all of the Jordan 11 Retro High releases in the past.
The Jordan 11 Retro Space Jam drops at Nike stores this Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 10AM EST.
