This coming Holiday season Jordan Brand is releasing a pair known as the Air Jordan 11 72-10. Of course they are, it’s tradition that comes around Christmas time and this year Air Jordan XI is a tribute to Michael and the Chicago Bulls best record, the one that no other NBA team has broke, 72-10. We have received countless emails and messages about when they release and how much will they cost. We heard that the retail price has increased once again, but it was a rumor at the time. Today we have answered both questions for you.
During the 1995-96 season, Michael Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to an amazing 72-10 record. During the NBA season he wore the Bred and Space Jam Air Jordan 11. The Bred version would actually hit retailers but the Space Jam was an exclusive for Michael. Not until December of 2000 would the Space Jam AJ XI release.
The 72-10 Air Jordan 11 takes some of the Bred and Space Jam and mashes them together. While patent leather, translucent midsole will all be intact, the uppers which use mesh will be replaced with leather. In the past some samples were made. Images are floating around the web but don’t expect those to ever hit eBay. Retired NFL player Warren Sapp even had a similar pair, with a few minor tweaks. Other details include iridescent across the patent leather, an embossed Jumpman instead of stitched and a tag that notes the best season ever in NBA history, 72-10, which reads “Inspired by the most historic season led by the greatest player ever”. The box which is the traditional slide out comes with shoe horns, plastic lid and tissue.
New images have surfaced of the Air Jordan 11 72-10 soles and box. What appears to be translucent could also be glow in the dark. This isn’t confirmed as of yet. The standard Air Jordan 11 retro box will be used but with an iridescent finish just like the patent leather.
Air Jordan 11 72-10 Release Date
Christmas can’t come quick enough for some and we say this because the Air Jordan 11 72-10 releases on December 12th 2015. We are sure many of you will have them on your Christmas list. The rumor of the retail price increasing is actually true. As you know the ‘Legend Blues’ sold for $200, $15 increase. The 72-10 will cost you $220. While this may discourage a few sneakerheads, we are sure once we get closer to the release and more images are shown, that extra $20 (or $35, depending on how you look at it) won’t be that much. Not only will adult sizes release but kids also allowing the whole family to wear them.
