Many were hoping for the return of the “Cool Grey” or a proper retro of the OG “Columbia” for the brand’s annual Air Jordan 11 Holiday release, but spirits were crushed when word broke late last year of al all-new release for the season. The Air Jordan 11 “Clear” it was dubbed, thanks to a mysterious inclusion of a translucent in the color listing. Many wet on to speculate that it may arrive with a translucent mudguard overlay, others thinking the entire upper would be translucent, and some hoping it just meant the outsole. Well, first looks at the pair have arrived, revealing that the latter is in fact the case.
Originally speculated to arrive with translucent/clear mudguard overlays, first looks at the pair now show that the listed “Clear” is in fact the colorless translucent outsole. Uppers arrive contracted in classic Ai Jordan 11 materials, including heavy-duty black mesh, and black patent leather overlays. Jumpman branding arrives in solid metal, with luxurious metal #23 branding at the heel, and the pair comes complete with “JORDAN” branding across the eyelets in a like style to the silhouette’s signature midfoot tongue tag — a finish seen on many early Air Jordan 11 samples circa 1995/96
A release date for the pair is yet to be revealed, but you can expect specifics to surface soon.
