For years, we have been blessed with images of rare PE’s (Player Exclusives to the sneaker novices) and samples. Occasionally, Jordan Brand and Nike will throw us a bone and release some samples like the Air Jordan 9 “Bred.” There have been others that have been been rumored to release for years, but ultimately, have been pushed back. Pushed back until now, that this. Previously called the “Blackout,” this Air Jordan 11 had an all black leather upper, as well as Smokey translucent soles.
Recent pictures of the upcoming release show that the leather upper is replaced with nubuck suede material and icier soles. They are expected to drop on May 26th, 2018 for a suggested retail price of $220. What are your thoughts on these? Tune into The Jordan Rack for more news and product availability on our site.
