Remember this Jordan 11 Low sample that was floating around last year?

The sneaker showed up ahead of the white/black/true red version that actually did hit retail, and had a few changes as far as the colors used. This pair has a more traditional Chicago Bulls look to it on account of the extra bits of red found on the outsoles and the lining. Would this pair have been more widely celebrated were it to have been the one on shelves? It's difficult to say, although the extra red sections take away a bit from the "Tuxedo" allure of the retail pair. This sample Jordan 11 Low comes from the collection of depeche23mode.
