We are not here to confirm nor deny any rumors, but it is tough to overlook the whispers of a possible Holiday 2013 Air Jordan 11 release. The facts are the only things we know for sure is that Jordan Brand takes holiday releases very seriously. Black Friday and Christmas specifically have been typically reserved for some monster releases, like last years Bred drop of the Air Jordan 4 and 11. It seems odd that JB would choose to use the same model for two consecutive holiday releases, but the XI is a very important number in the Jordan line-up so it isn’t totally out of the question.

We’ve heard all types of colorways mentioned, from original versions like the Columbia’s to the Space Jams, to the more innovative like the “Blackouts” or “Gamma Blue”, to the over-the-top “Year of the Snake” which PS versions have hinted at a snake printed patent leather. The only thing we know for sure is that the holiday season will hold something BIG, and at this point we can only speculate, but hey that’s what the internet is for. Let us know in the comments your thoughts and what versions you would like to see released

  1. DAM ITS FUCKING JAN and we talking about holiday releases lets just chill a bit this is how hype builds i know its your job to inform us but this isn’t even confirmed yet now these hypebeast wont stop talking about this and keep hyping it every chance they get which causes for a repeat with the killing the stealing the resell smh

  2. Man if they don’t release the Allstar game Jordan’s /Columbia blue they need to kill they selves that is one of the most important 11 to date

  3. black-out and space jam would be good! not feeling the gamma blue..the snakeskin patent leather for YOTS would be interesting..i would go jams and black-out if i had my choice!

    • @Jonathan Broder  bruh space jams already dropped in 09 if you didnt cop them then either your a hypebeast who rode the bandwagon on later on down the road or you just had misfortune and had to pass on them but either way its tooooo soon for them to release again there’s other colorways that need some shine i.e. original snakeskin lows also the citrus and cherry lows or a new colorway like these concepts above.

      • @pdcastleberry i have the space jams..was just saying out of the cw’s shown i would not mind the space jams..that said the black out or the YOTS snakeskin would not be bad either. just not the blue things. not a huge columbia fan just cause it getting dirty and yellow quick!

  4. i would vote the blackout to be honest…if you wanna do a double xi this year have blackout for black friday and than the columbias for xmas!

  5. give us the blackouts or those snakeskins…tried of them trying to get rich off of rereleaseing the same damn shoe time after time…give us something new!

  6. Columbia’s YELLOW too quickly!  In a day when EVERYONE complains about quality on these social sites, that’s the last pair they wanna release.  Besides every year the production number of 11’s increases significantly.  I doubt (and this is just my opinion) J/B and Nike feel they can move more than 500,000 (The amount created for the bred 11’s) plus pairs in December 2013.  There’s just no way HYPE/Market a plain white pair of 11’s that will turn yellow before All-star week 2014 or spring.  Nike knows this!  You also have to think about the legal repercussions.  If enough people come together and complain about the product being flawed (yellowing), it could turn into a massive class action suit against Nike.  i.e. Microsoft’s “Red Ring of Death”.  It’ could be for that same reason they opted out last year in place of the Bred 11’s.  Collectors mean Sh%t to them. Publicity and Dollars is what their in business for.  Those Black outs and Space Jams would cause retail Chaos, Publicity, and mega dollars globally. And that my friends is PRICELESS!
