Fifteen years ago this past April, Jordan Brand released the Air Jordan 11 Retro in a non-IE patent leather version for the first time. Two colorways for men and two for women dropped alongside each other, while a few other followed.
All four colorways are highly coveted by fans, and two of those colorways have now made comebacks. The women's "Citrus" edition dropped in extended gradeschool sizes for girls in 2015 while the white/varsity red pair for men (now known as the "Cherry's") recently released in June.
That leaves the men's white/columbia blue and women's white/metallic silver pairs still left to be re-released from the first set of Air Jordan 11 Retro Lows in 2001. Today, you can cross one more pair off that list.
For Summer 2017, Jordan Brand is set to bring back the "Columbia" Air Jordan 11 Retro Low. Re-labeled as coming in white and university blue, they will look identical to their 2001 counterpart complete with a white-based leather upper, blue patent leather and full translucent outsole.
Unlike the three Air Jordan 11 Retro Low releases of 2016, next years drops will come in full-family sizing, down to toddler and not just in men's and gradeschool. In addition, a few other colorways of the Air Jordan 11 Retro Low will also debut. A men's pair that comes in a Barons-inspired black and metallic silver while two girls exclusives will also drop, one a Premium edition and the other a GR.
While no images are available at this time, i've included one from the original 2001 release to give you an idea.So enjoy this first bit of news to hold you down until 2017 comes.
