The Air Jordan 11 "Legend Blue" is set to be the biggest retro release of the year. The colorway, originally called the "Columbia", is classic one from the Jordan Brand repertoire that fans have been calling for the return of for years now. On the eve of its return, Sole Collector's Retrograde also returns to pit the sneaker against the 1996 original and the 2001 retro.

Retrograde is an ongoing video series in which retro versions of sneakers will be compared to the originals in order to highlight the differences. In the first episode, the Air Jordan 6 "Black/Infrared" release from 2014 was compared with all of the previous Jordan 6s wearing that Bulls palette. Watch the video above for a historical comparison of the 2014 Jordan 11 "Legend Blue" vs the Jordan 11 "Columbia from 2001 and the Jordan 11 "Columbia" 1996 original and leave suggestions in the comments on which sneakers should show up next for Retrograde.
