UPDATE – Late November: Here they are Jordanheads. Care of J23 App, feast your eyes on these official snaps of the 72-10s. That December 19th release date is so close now, you can practically smell the patent leather. An all new Jordan 11 in 'Bred' colours? It goes without saying but demand is going to be fierce. Snooze and you'll lose!
The hypelords at Jordan Brand know to bring the hottest heat for all the cold soles out there come Christmas time – that's when they've made a habit of dropping the crème de la crème Air Jordan 11 release. Last year, it was the Columbia redux, before that the Gamma Blue, this time it's a distinctly Bulls-inspired design. These buttery Bred joints marry some of the most popular Jordan 11 components, starting with an icy outsole that sandwiches in a marshmallow white midsole with the black patent leather rand. Word is the ballistic Cordura mesh that typically takes care of the rest of the 11 upper has been subbed out this time for a straight leather treatment, and the leaked pic above suggests the murmurings are on the money. Red embroidery on the Jumpman and other branding motifs make this a clear shout-out to the Bulls preferred palette of black and red. This AJ11 has reportedly been dubbed the '72-10', as an ode to the Bulls's regular season win/loss record in their stunning 1995-96 championship campaign, which is also when MJ repped these ball boots on-court. Stay locked to Sneaker Freaker for more pics and info over the coming months leading to the release, which will likely be December 19. Pic via zSneakerHeadz.
