Each year, sneakerheads ramp up for the biggest Jordan release of the year. In lieu of the 20th Anniversary of Space Jam, Jordan Brand has plans to re-release the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” in a big way.
If you’re one of the few that haven’t seen the iconic film that stars the GOAT Michael Jordan, here’s a basic rundown. Jordan fails miserably in his professional baseball stint (true story), and is enlisted by Bugs Bunny the Looney Tunes to defend their world from the nefarious Monstars in a basketball game. Mike brushes up his skills and helps defeat the aliens from Moron Mountain to restore order in the Looney Tunes universe.
Although the film is full of legendary moments, many remember the film for the GOAT’s footwear in the film. He sports the inimitable Jordan 11 that dons a black patent leather upper and concord Jumpman logo.
The Jordan Brand Space Jam Pack’s main draw is certainly the Retro 11 silhouette, seen in its original form with a few tweaks including an icy translucent sole, 45 embroidery on the heel, and Nike Air branding on the in-sole.
Additionally, Space Jam themed Air Jordan XXXI and an Air Jordan 1 Ultra High sneakers will be included in the collection, as well as a gang of other Jordan Brand silhouettes. No sneaker pack would be complete without apparel to match, so Jordan Brand went all out and included outerwear, tees, and various accessories that draw inspiration from the film in the collection.
The Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” is slated for a December 10 release from Nike’s online shop. Other releases from this collection have varying drops, but the apparel is available from nike.com right now. And if you can’t get enough, check out Jordan’s promo for the collection here.
