The Air Jordan retro XI is one of the more popular retro models amongst the sneaker community. I was able to get these pair of "bred" 11s during a Nike restock in 2012. The 11 is a very popular model and offers a lot of popular color ways. Arguably the most sought after sneaker in the world is a pair of 11s; the "Space Jam" 11s. If you haven't been living under a rock your entire life you have probably seen the movie Space Jam at least once or twice. The movie stars the GOAT (greatest of all time) Michael Jordan along with the cast of the Looney Tunes. During the movie Michael Jordan was filmed wearing a pair of retro 11s that had not been seen before. They look like this:
Anyways, the 11s are a very popular model and one of my personal favorites. The Bred 11s are another pair of sought after models similar to the Space Jams, but not even close to being as rare. I copped the 11s in the bred color way because I do not like the cool gray, or the "gamma" color way, and the concords unless purchased on release day, re-sell for much too high of a price. So I got lucky in December of 2012 and was able to get the breeds brand new for retail at $180.00 from Nike.com. The shoe offers a black upper of mesh and patent leather, a white midsole, and a red rubber outsole. I love my pair because I can rock them with about 25% of my closet. Let me know how you feel about the retro 11 model in a comment, and if you own or want a pair in the future.
