*UPDATE* The official release date for this package has been pushed up from it’s original December 26th date to December 20th. For more information, see here.
The wait seems to finally be over. The long debate about what the final production colorways for the most anticipated Jordan Countdown Package of 2008 is confirmed.
Through all the rumors of Space Jams and Taxis to Space Jams with red instead of royal and white/red XII’s to black and red XI’s and black/red/cement XII’s and so on, and so on and so on, we now finally know for sure which colorways we’ll be seeing. After confirmed word to unconfirmed word to typographical errors, there is now light at the end of the tunnel. Pictures have finally surfaced overseas of what looks to be the legit final production colorways for the Jordan 11/12 Collezione package.
Two OG colorways will be released after all, and unlike the 19/4 pack which featured two black-based colorways, these are back to the original concept of things: One black-based model and one white-based model. The XI’s are indeed the black and red original colorway which was pretty much the only thing really confirmed since Nike.com released the colorway description. But the XII’s on the other hand seem to be an enigma all of their own.
Well since I gave you a hint above that one will be white-based and one will be black-based and the XI’s are black and red, you all now know that the XII’s have to be white-based. But what could they be? Are they an original colorway like the Taxis or the white/red’s? Or are they an original colorway with a twist, or something new altogether? You question is answered in the pictures below, the colorway of the Air Jordan 12 Retro in the 11/12 Countdown Package is….the Taxis.
So, all you impatient people out there can stop losing sleep over contemplating exactly what colorways will be in the final package for 2008. All you really have to do is start saving your pennies which i’m sure most of you have been for quite some time no regardless of which colors the shoes are. Well you have just about five weeks to go until you have your chance to get them.
The final Air Jordan Countdown Package the 11/12 Collezione will be releasing worldwide on Friday December 26th and will retail for the usual $310 for men’s sizes and $200 for gradeschool kid’s sizes. Enjoy the pictures below as they should hold everyone down for the time being. As always, stay tuned here and in our forums for all the latest and greatest info on everything Air Jordan.
