On-Foot: Air Jordan 11 'Cool Grey'Release: 11 December 2021
Update: We now have on-foot images of the Air Jordan 11 'Cool Grey', compliments of @yankeekicks! The in-line colourway scheduled to arrive on December 11.
Holiday Air Jordan 11 SZN is almost here! Every year, Jordan Brand release a special Air Jordan 11 in December, and 2021's drop is a good one: the Air Jordan 11 'Cool Grey'. Rumours of the release began to swirl as far back as 2020 and early images leaked much earlier in the year, but with a certified date of arrival right around the corner – and a recent SNKRS shock drop – official images have now surfaced.
Debuted in 2001 and last retroed in 2010, the 'Cool Grey' is one of the Air Jordan 11's most beloved non-OG colourways. It gets its name from its two-tone grey upper, which features a light grey nubuck base (in place of a standard ballistic mesh construction) overlaid by a glossy grey patent leather mudguard. Branding, laces and midsoles are done up in white, with an icy blue outsole rounding off the look. The return of the 'Cool Grey' follows up December 2020's release of the Air Jordan 11 'Jubilee' and December 2019's bringback of the Air Jordan 11 'Bred'.
Thankfully, it seems to have dodged the shipping and production delays that have plagued several other Air Jordan drops, and at the time of writing is scheduled for a full on-time arrival come December 11. Men's pairs are priced at $225, and grade school, pre-school, infant and toddler pairs will also be available.
