Air Jordan 11 Retro “72-10”
Release Date:December 19, 2015
First things first, the Air Jordan 11 “72-10″ model is a tribute to the 72-10 record by the Chicago Bulls in 1996. It features red accents and dominated by the black color, creating a clean line that runs from the body to where it meets the soles. The leather used for this model is thicker than usual and you can tell that the design is made specifically for heavy use. There is the iconic Jump Man logo on display but instead of being stitched, the material is embossed on the leather.
The overlay is iridescent so friends are in for a surprise once you get somewhere dark. The logo is located at the back heel while the number 23 is blacked out along the upper portion of the heel. The laces are kept black and so it the tongue, creating a straight and clean looks of the design.
The soles and outsole seem to be black as well although it’s hard to tell with all the “close up” pictures of the shoes used as a teaser for its upcoming release. Those who are looking forward to the product however are hoping the soles are not translucent and based on what can be glimmered from the pictures, they are not.
Around the interior, you have got a stitching of the Jump Man logo with the words “Inspired by the most historic season led by the greatest player ever”. Needless to say, the Air Jordan 11 “72-10″ seems to be something for the collection.
Despite all the media buzz, the Air Jordan 11 “72-10″ is set for a Jordan release date of December 19 – just in time for the holidays. If you feel like giving these kicks out as a gift to a friend or to yourself, make sure to watch out for any announcements that the Air Jordan 11 “72-10″ is available in the nearest Jordan Brand store you have.
As for pricing, reports reveal that these historic shoes will be priced at $220. A little expensive compared to other models but bearing in mind that they are a nod to a historic event, the price is definitely well worth it.
