Several new Jordans have created a lot of buzz as of lately and considering that Black Friday just went by, the Air Jordan 6 “Black/Infrared” was obviously under the spotlight. However, now the Air Jordan 11 “Legend Blue” is apparently taking center stage. One of the recent Jordan release dates that were confirmed by Jordan Brand will mark the retail debut of this “Legend Blue” colorway of the Air Jordan 11, but that is not the only thing that has been confirmed.
One of the latest sneaker news from Jordan Brand is that the retail price of the Air Jordan 11 “Legend Blue” will indeed be $200, as it was initially rumored to be. No doubt, sneaker heads shocked by the relatively high price of this Jordan 11; they are probably still going to want to cop this pair once it hits the selves before the year comes to an end. For those who do not recall, this “Legend Blue” colorway of the Air Jordan 11 was the one worn by Michael Jordan when he returned from his first retirement and played his first NBA All-Star Game.
One of the reasons that the Air Jordan 11 sneakers that Jordan Brand releases every year have been so exceptional is because they always tend to use the slide-out packaging. Even the Legend Blue 11 that makes its retail debut this year will be contained within slide-out packaging. It must be kept in mind that the Air Jordan 11 “Legend Blue,” formerly dubbed as the Columbia 11, has not hit the shelves for more than a decade. The pairs that are currently in existence have probably yellowed to quite an extent, so Jordan heads will probably seize this opportunity to get their hands on this coveted colorway.
The Air Jordan 11 “Legend Blue” was only retroed once back in 2001. Just like the O.G. pair that Michael Jordan had worn, this latest 2014 iteration also features the same pure white upper with matching Columbia or Legend Blue Jordan Jumpan logo and tongue strip with Jordan branding. The translucent icy outsole is also in the same blue hue as well. Moreover, just like the original version, no Jordan 23 branding is present on this sneaker.
Considering that December is the last month of the year, Jordan Brand is obviously going to be busy dropping new Jordans. The Air Jordan 11 “Legend Blue” is also amongst them and it has been confirmed that the pair is making its retail debut on December 20. However, that is not all. Jordan Brand is also scheduled to release matching Sportswear apparel that will accompany the retail debut of this colorway.
