Jordan XI Release
Originally launched at retail in November 1995, Michael’s intuitive insight of bringing a “formal look” to the court served as the inspiration for the original AIR JORDAN XI. Worn during his full return in the 1995-96 season, the AJ XI quickly became one of the most popular AIR JORDANs of all-time. In another bold innovative step, the AJ XI featured patent leather for the first time in an athletic shoe, and a ‘secret weapon’ carbon-fiber spring plate and polymer-coated upper that refused to stretch or lose its shape through MJ’s 72-win season and a fourth NBA title. During this season, MJ became only the second player ever to be crowned MVP for the season, the All-Star Game, and the Finals in a single season.
This holiday season, the AIR JORDAN XI makes a triumphant comeback as a “gift” to consumers in a memorable black / varsity royal / white colorway with a celebratory AJ XI box. This colorway was first seen during a starring movie role played by MJ and has only been available at retail once before, in 2001.
The AIR JORDAN XI RETRO will launch on December 23, 2009 for a suggested retail price of P7,995. Only 50 pairs will be available in the Philippines exclusively at Nike Park The Fort. Doors open at 12 noon.
