While colorways such as "Concord" and "Space Jam" are beloved for their own reasons, the "Bred" Air Jordan 11 has the distinction of being the shoe worn by Michael Jordan as he clinched his fourth NBA championship on Father's Day in 1996.

To date, the classic pair has been re-released on three separate occasions—first in 2001, as part of a CDP in 2008 and lastly in 2012. Now, the word is that the 2019 version will be the closest to the original, most notably sporting the high-cut patent leather overlay along the base.

While images haven't surfaced (above is a pair from '96), ZSneakerheadz reports that the "Bred" Jordan 11 Retro will release on Saturday, Dec. 14 for $220. The release will be general and sizing will be full family. Keep it locked for updates in the coming months.

UPDATE (06/19): Clear images of the upcoming "Bred" Air Jordan 11 Retro via Hanzuying. Contrary to earlier rumors, the shoe will feature Jordan's traditional number '23' on the heel as opposed to the number '45' spotted on a rare original sample.

UPDATE (08/24): According to early images provided by zSneakerheadz and Wavegod_thelegend, the highly-anticipated return of this year's "Bred" Air Jordan 11 Retro will include original-style packaging.

UPDATE (11/13): After being spotted on Foot Locker's upcoming release calendar by J23app, the "Bred" Air Jordan 11 has now been confirmed to release on Dec. 14 in full family sizing. Stay tuned for further updates in the coming weeks. 

UPDATE (11/14): Check out an official look at this year's Air Jordan 11 "Bred" releasing on Dec. 14 for $220.
