Though many sneakerheads had sights set on a "Columbia" return this holiday season, the Jordan Brand has opted to serve up an all-new colorway of the iconic Air Jordan 11.

Pictured in sample form below, the Holiday '13 retro features a black cordura and patent leather upper with Gamma Blue Jumpman Branding. Varsity Maize provides subtle detailing on the tongue and heel. A blue-tinted translucent outsole caps off the look below.

Priced at $185, the "Gamma Blue" Air Jordan 11 will hit nike.com, Foot Locker, Eastbay, Footaction and other Nike retailers on Saturday, December 21. Sizes run down to infant.
