Jordan Brand will double-down on the holiday tradition of releasing Air Jordan 11s this year by bringing out two new colorways of the heralded sneaker. First is the Air Jordan 11 "Win Like '82" ($220) in navy releasing on Nov. 11, and then the Air Jordan 11 "Win Like '96" ($220) in red releasing on Dec. 9.
The "Win Like '82" pair is a reference to Michael Jordan's UNC alma mater and, more specifically, the championship he won there in 1982. While such sneakers usually feature a baby blue, the midnight navy shade here points to Jordan's alternate practice shorts from his college days, which were a deeper shade.
The "Win Like '96" pair is inspired by Jordan's Chicago Bulls tenure and that team's 1996 championship.
Both of these sneakers will come in full-family sizes, as is customary for Air Jordan 11s.
Each will be preceded by a matching version of Jordan's latest signature model, with the "Win Like '82" Jordan 32 releasing on Nov. 4 and the "Win Like '96" Jordan 32 releasing on Dec. 2.
