The holiday season is one of the biggest times of year in the sneaker world. For Jordan Brand, this time of year has always been big for them as they drop some highly touted retros for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the day after Christmas and this year they are mixing it up. Usually JB waits until Black Friday to kick off their releases but this year they are dropping a new colorway of an Air Jordan Retro 11 on November 11th. The Air Jordan Retro 11 ‘Win Like ’82’ is a new colorway that honors Michael Jordan’s Championship-winning ways with the University of North Carolina. The iconic pairing of navy and university blue visualizes the “Win Like ’82” idea, which honors Jordan’s NCAA title-winning shot in the 1982 Championship Game.
This Air Jordan 11 will shed its original Bulls-themed colorway and reveal a new iteration of the shoes in UNC colors; it emphasizes navy blue on the iconic mudguard with university blue detailing on the Jumpman. Last month, during the University of North Carolina’s annual “Late Night With Roy” preseason scrimmage the school got to celebrate their NCAA national title last year, and the team debuted the ‘Win Like ’82’ Air Jordan 11 on court before anyone else. Make sure you start your holiday season off the right way and grab your pair. We will be holding in-store raffles for these and you can check out the details for that here.
