Today brings us one of the biggest sneaker releases of the year with the Air Jordan XI Retro in its beloved Black/True Red colorway.  In honor of the "Breds", this week's Kicks on Cards Collection is nothing but the Air Jordan XI.  I reached into the Kicks on Cards vault and pulled out all the colorways of the XI that I could find. 

We start with the shoe of the hour, the Bred XI, on the feet of Eddie Jones.  Since this card is from 2001, it is safe to say that these are the shoe's first retro from the same year.  The retro versions continue with the next three cards, which all happen to be from Los Angeles Clipper teammates.  First up is Quentin Richardson in the "Cool Grey" XI.  Then we have Corey Maggette in the "Space Jam" XI and Elton Brand in the Columbia Blue Low version from 2001. 

An Air Jordan XI collection couldn't be complete without Micheal Jordan, so the last card is the man himself in the iconic "Concord" colorway.  Have a favorite colorway?  A prediction for next year's Air Jordan XI release?  Discuss in the comments below.
