• Air Jordan 11 : The Ultimate Timeline to Colorways

    Arguably the most popular model of all-time, here’s a look at the lineage of the Air Jordan 11.

    In 1995, three colorways originally released along with two colorways of a low-cut version known as the “IE,” which featured a different silhouette altogether. The year 2000 saw the shoe return for its first retro run, spawning high-tops in both new and OG colorways, low-tops with patent leather and snake skin and women’s editions. The 11 was also the reason why Air Jordan Retro releases were moved to Saturdays, as kids often skipped school and cut class to get their hands on a pair.

    In 2003, the original low-top IE version returned in both original colorways. The wait for another Jordan 11 release lasted until 2006, which gave us the first ever two-shoe pack from Jordan Brand — “Defining Moments.” A year later, the IE had a second retro run, this time in full force with six releases in just three months. The Air Jordan 11 was represented in the final “Countdown” Package released in 2008, and one year later, the now annual Air Jordan 11 Retro holiday release began.

    To date, there have been six holiday Air Jordan 11 Retros, a handful of low top releases in IE, patent leather and snake skin offerings, along with a one-off release in 2010 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Air Jordan. The past four years have featured at least one Air Jordan 11 Retro Low release, with more to follow this year. In 2014, the former “Pantone” sample colorway was packaged alongside an Air Jordan XX9 as a part of the “Ultimate Gift Of Flight” Pack. A few low-tops and an original IE retro have already dropped this year.

    With so many releases to date, it’s hard to imagine what Jordan Brand will be offering in 2019, when it celebrates the 23rd Anniversary of this famed model — only time will tell. In the meantime, enjoy a look at the history of the Air Jordan 11 from its first release up to the most recent retro.

  • Did You Strike Out Trying To Grab A Pair Of The Air Jordan 11 Low “Team Red”?

    If you were one of the many people trying to get the Air Jordan 11 Low “Team Red” last week, chances are you probably got this notification you see above, or something very similar to it basically telling you that you lucked out and struck out.

    Beginning at 7a.m.. the Nike website was flooded with people trying to grab a pair. There’s been stories stating that people already had them in their cart and when they clicked to buy, the shoes somehow disappeared. Other people are stating that the website let them know that they’re in line, but 3, 4 even 5 hours later they come to find out that Nike is out of stock. To put it lightly, a lot of people left empty handed and upset that they basically wasted their whole morning for nothing. Many people went to twitter to let out their frustration to Nike letting them know “thanks for nothing”. How did you do? Do you have a crazy story to tell us? Did you also struck out or are you a proud owner of the Air Jordan 11 Low “Team Red”? Let us know in the comments below.

    You can get your pair below:

  • Air Jordan 11 “Legend Blue” – Release Date 12/20/14

    We have it in stock NOW! You can get your pair today.

  • AIR JORDAN 3, 4 & 10 “OREGON DUCKS”

    We just added the Air Jordan 3, 4, and 10 Oregon Ducks to our extensive catalog of Retro Jordans. Flyer than the rest of them, the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 4 “Oregon Ducks” exclusives combine AJ heritage and school spirit in the most exclusive of manners. University branding tags the tongue on both home and away makeups of the cement laden signature, while the same stamping pops up on the heel of the winged favorite. Get yours while supplies last.

     



  • Air Jordan 11 “Gamma Blue” Released Yesterday – Did you get a pair?

    The Air Jordan 11 “Gamma Blue” will release yesterday, December 21st. The sneaker was looking to do the usual Air Jordan 11 thing and come through as the biggest release for the last couple weeks of the year. Did you get a pair? If not, you can still get one here.

  • Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 12/14 – 12/20

    We’re closing out a week en route to one of the biggest sneaker dates of the year – the release of the annual Air Jordan 11. However, tomorrow’s Gamma Blue 11 drop isn’t all that’s worth talking about, because this week was stacked with headlines. Starting off, we saw a bundle of new Air Jordan Retros for 2014, while catching a first glimpse at a new Lifestyle Kobe 9 model. The KD 6 was a big topic with a first detailed look at the “Energy” colorway, as was the LeBron 11 thanks to the series of college PE issues. Supreme x Foamposite hit us late in the week, revealing two colorways in some unique styling that only the streetwear brand can do. Other NSW news included the Year of the Horse Pack, which included the Air Max 1, Lunar Force 1, and much more. The Nike SB Dunk High “Tiffany” looks like its happening for real, which has garnered a mixed response from our readers.

  • Air Jordan 11 Doernbecher to Release in 2014

Confirmed by the youngster who will be part of the Doernbecher Freestyle XI, Jimmy Li, the Air Jordan 11 Retro will release next year as part of the annual collection (coincidentally, the Retro model matches the number of years Nike has been in cahoots with the respected medical institution). This is surely shaping up to be the grandest Doernbecher release yet, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more on this developing story and let us know what you think of this upcoming release!

  • Sneaker News Weekly Rewind: 12/7 – 12/13

    We’re nearing the end of December, but the headlines keep rolling in! We got a first look at an Air Jordan 6 “Toro” colorway – one of several 2014 releases that we caught a glimpse of. Nike officially unveiled the 2013 Christmas Pack, with the KD, LeBron, and Kobe represented well. Another look at Oregon Foams caught readers by surprise, while a clean new colorway of the Flightposite Exposed coerced detractors to the altered classic. Jordan Brand officially unveiled Carmelo’s 10th signature shoe, which releases on the same day of the Melo 1.5 bringback (a shoe he’s been steadily balling in – more to see in NBA Feet).
