UPDATE: Official photos are up on NDC. The 26th of September release date is confirmed, along with a full size run that will keep the grommets and ladies happy. See you at the spot this Saturday!
It’s pretty normal to bug out over Player Exclusives hitting retail, but a ‘referee exclusive’? Now that’s something you don’t see everyday! While His Airness was tearing up the court in patent leather, the refs were rocking an Air Jordan 11 all of their own. The blacked-out rendition of the AJ11 IE was never made available for sale and has remained highly coveted with Jordan collectors ever since – probably the only IE to ever make a grail list! It’s only taken Jordan Brand a good 19 years, but now the AJ 11 IE ‘Referee’ is set to finally hit shelves. The red is a little different and the leather mudguard has been switched out for suede, but these are probably as close to the OG as we’ll ever get. The AJ 11 IE ‘Referee’ will go on sale on September 26th. Pics via NikeBlog.
