Will the "Space Jam" Air Jordan 11 be back as a retro this year? One sneaker leaker on Instagram says so, and posted the above photo of what he says is a sample pair of 2016 "Space Jam" Jordan 11s.
The shoe's return this year would make sense – 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of Space Jam and Jordan Brand's ran through all the other original Jordan 11 colorways in recent years. However, it's unlikely that the photo here is indeed a legitimate 2016 pair of "Space Jams."
Remember that the first images of last year's "72-10" Air Jordan 11 didn't leak until May and that talk of their arrival didn't start until February. What's more, there are no discerning marks on the above pair to set it apart from the 2009 "Space Jam" release and the source of this image isn't the type to have early Air Jordan release info.
A 2016 "Space Jam" Jordan 11 is still possible, but nowhere near confirmed for now.
Sole Collector will have Jordan release date info should the "Space Jams" return this year.
