Air Jordan XI? Check.
MJ worn colorway? Check.
$185? Check.

Campouts, riots, murder/un-murders, my name in The Oregonian, and server crashes? Potentially.

CounterKicks can confirm this year’s huge Jordan Brand 2012 Holiday release, hitting retail in December for the Christmas shopping season as in past years, is the Air Jordan 11 Retro. Styled in Black/White-Varsity Red, the shoe has been previously given the nickname “Breds” by sneakerheads, a portmanteau of “black” and “red.” This is maybe only the second or third time I’ve used the “Bred” phrasing, professionally. Now you’ll be hearing it regularly for 10 more months. Kill me now before someone else does in queue. Moving on…

The original form, MJ worn, Air Jordan 11 Retro “Bred” carries the elevated $180 $185 retail price tag as last December’s Air Jordan 11 Retro “Concord.” The shoe is being wholesaled into stores for $95.40, with a model/style code of 378037-010.

While the Bred XI release is still months away from starting production in China, we’d estimate based on last year’s AJXI Concord figures a likely total run of around 400,000-500,000 pairs.

Hopefully this doesn’t devolve into the absolute chaos that recent Concord XI and Nike Air Foamposite One “Galaxy” releases have turned out, but probably don’t count on it yet. Retailers and brands need to smarten up their release day distribution strategies on major footwear launches as the store lines and human campouts continue to get snake out longer and longer. And to ensure that no one is physically hurt.

Also. For those emailing us about the Columbia XI release, no idea where that rumor started. It’s not on the official Holiday 2012 books, anyways.

This is going to be funny. Can’t wait to see the news reports on the riots in Greenwich, Connecticut, then Newport, Rhode Island.

I know this is random but….

That rug pattern looks so familiar. I know the design of it’s a pretty common one from the 90’s but did Nike turn that into a print detail for a JB jacket or something? It has a little of that Elephant skin/print material to it from the J 3’s

on another note…look at how skinny MJ is there…his right leg (left side of the pic) doesn’t even fill up his spandex shorts.

@PaperP So you’re dumb ass is taking a gun to go get a pair of shoes? You motherfuckers value shoes so much that you would pack for a shoe release? The only time you should use you’re gun is to protect you family and home. NOT TO MAKE SURE YOU GET YOU’RE BREDS. Lame ass kids.
