Is the Air Jordan 11 premium really worth its $400 retail price? That question doesn't matter much to Mark Wahlberg, who seems to have gotten a free pair courtesy of Jordan Brand.

Wahlberg shared the sneakers on his Instagram account and mentioned Christmas coming early in the form of the footwear.

While it may seem strange to some that the actor is getting sent free sneakers, Wahlberg's Jordan Brand clout runs pretty deep. Not only does he get retail stuff for free, he also has some pretty impressive one-off designs in his collection.

The Air Jordan 11 pictured is the first premium, $400 style of the sneaker. The shoe had a surprise release on Nov. 11, when it popped up at boutique spots like Kith and Concepts.
