Last year, the hype around the Jordan 11 holiday release was real. The Cool Greys – which had not released in more than 20 years – were finally coming back. This was soon after the Playoffs, and a special edition was stuck in the middle. Add in the Concords and it seemed like pretty much every 11 release was going to land with a bang.
I think it’s fair to say that a lot of younger sneakerheads might remember the Jordan 14 as the last pair Jordan wore in his NBA career. There is even this famous (and visually stunning) photo, which gave the bread colorway of the 14s their nick name. However, while that is a great story, it’s just not true. Jordan came back again, this time in a new city but sporting an older shoe. The Jordan 11 Cool Grey.
