You’ve probably already noticed that this year’s New Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” will be a lot different from the previous 2009 version. Instead, Jordan Brand uses Michael Jordan’s original “Space Jam” film PE as inspiration.
Jordan Brand will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Space Jam with a re-release of the classic New Air Jordan 11 (XI) that was originally debuted by Michael Jordan in the film and later on the court. They’ll come housed in special edition Looney Tunes and Bugs Bunny themed box. There’s also a special graphic of both Bugs Bunny’s and The Monsters’ arms wrapping around each-other to create the number “23.” Finishing off the packaging design is a dot pattern “XI” on the plastic cover.
20 years later, the “Space Jam” Air Jordan 11 will be receiving a remastered original makeover similar to what Michael Jordan originally wore during the 1995 NBA Playoffs with its traditional all-Black mesh and a higher-cut patent leather upper. Other details include a Concord Jumpman, stitched “45” on the back heel (not ’23), Nike Air insoles, White midsole and a translucent outsole, along with the Jumpman/Jordan inscribed on the tongue tab.
