After ten years since it first hit stores, the "Space Jam" Air Jordan XI Retro returned in 2009. It was released in December, just a few days before Christmas. This time around there are a few differences between these and the 2000 version. For instance, the Jumpman logo on the heels face inward while the '00 version faced outward. The Jumpman logo on the outsole is now blue instead of white. Lastly, the phrase "Jumpman Jam" on the tongue label has been replaced with "Jumpman Jordan." Still, not enough change to prohibit people from wanting these just as much as the previous release, if not more. They retailed for $175, and were a general release available in full family sizing from men's all the way down to crib soft bottoms. You could find them everywhere Jordans were sold from urban accounts to chainstores and everything in between. But even though they were a GR, they sold out instantly! These also came in a unique pull out style box made specifically for this release. They also came with a plastic cover similar to that found with the first Jordan DMP pack in 2006, and metallic royal blue colored plastic shoe trees for an added touch of flavor.
