FILIPINO sneakerheads get another chance to grab what is considered the “Holy Grail” of sneakers this holiday season.
Nike Philippines is set to release Michael Jordan’s most iconic signature shoe in the Air Jordan XI “Concord” on December 8 at select Nike and Titan branches.
Suggested retail price is P10,695.
After releasing Jordan's newest signature shoe, the lace-less Jordan XXXIII this month, Nike goes old school next month.
Sneakerheads always salivate at this Jordan XI shoe that marked His Airness' comeback in 1995 after his first retirement.
While he already turned heads by sporting a No. 45 jersey as his No. 23 had been retired, the GOAT also unveiled the avant-garde pair that no one had seen before. Not only did it feature a white upper while the rest of the Chicago Bulls were wearing black shoes - resulting in a league fine for breaking uniform rules, it also had a leather strip on a basketball shoe for the first time.
In this latest release, the popular shoe still features the original patent leather cut, the Nike Air details on the insole, original box, and the “45” on the heel – exactly like the first pair Jordan wore on the court in 1995.
Is that enough Jordan history to get you excited? Then mark your calendars as you go sneaker shopping this Christmas season.
