2016 is the year in which the most illustrious and notable non-original sneaker that Jordan Brand has ever introduced as a part of their Air Jordan line will make its comeback. This November will also mark the 20th Anniversary of the 1996 live-action/animated basketball film Space Jam. Hence, it is very likely that the Jordan release 2016 of the black/blue Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” will take place as this year’s annual Holiday Season Air Jordan 11 release. In fact, the “Space Jam” iteration might just receive the remaster treatment that the Air Jordan 11 “72-10” received not so long ago.
While Christmas is still more than 11 months away now, during this year’s Holiday Season Jordanheads might actually receive the opportunity to cop the sneaker they have always wanted. The highly coveted and iconic Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” could very well be this year’s annual Christmas release. The fact that it was 20 years ago when Space Jam was released makes it even more likely for Jordan Brand to drop this sneaker as a means of commemorating the film’s 20th Anniversary. Considering that Jordan Brand also dropped several sneakers inspired by the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes characters further points towards the Jordan release 2016 of the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam.”
Despite being nothing more than speculation at this point, a photo has been circulating online that potentially showcases an Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” sample pair. Jordanheads are probably keeping their fingers crossed for the upcoming retro to have received the remastered treatment similar to that of the recent Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Blackboard” and Air Jordan 6 “Maroon.” Moreover, they are likely also hoping that the heel of the sneaker also sports the “45.”
Even though it is far too soon to expect that Jordan Brand might announce when exactly during the Holiday Season 2016 the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” will hit the shelves. However, December 17 and 24 are being rumored as potential release dates and Jordanheads should be prepared to pay a hefty price in order to grab a pair. The Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” might even arrive at retailers on November 15th, since that is the date the film was released.
