As November winds down, it’s time to look forward to the biggest month on the Air Jordan release calendar — December.

The centerpiece of the month is the annual holiday Air Jordan 11 release. This year, we finally get another ‘Columbia’ retro, though the hue is known as ‘Legend Blue’ this time around. Stacking the deck a bit, Jordan Brand will also release the ‘Pantone’ 11 as part of the ‘Gift of Flight Pack’ with the Air Jordan XX9 a few days later.

In many ways, December is also the month of the Air Jordan 1. We’ll see the launch of the 4Lab1, as well as new colorways of the mid and high, including Team Jordan PE make-ups of the latter. The month will close out with the first ever fragment design x Jordan collaboration, a royal variation of the classic ‘Black Toes.’

An all-new colorway of the Air Jordan 13 is being introduced, this pair essentially the original ‘Playoffs’ with red pods in place of white. The Spizike will drop in two colorways, one exclusive to kids.

Lastly, there will also be a ‘Christmas Pack’ of Jordan Brand’s signature shoes. Blake Griffin’s Super.Fly 3 and Chris Paul’s CP3.VIII will get festive makeovers, along with the never-before-seen Melo M11.

Read on for a full rundown of December's Air Jordan release dates.
