The 2016 Air Jordan 11 ‘Space Jam’ Will Feature 45

It’s no secret that this holiday season will see another Air Jordan 11 Retro release, and many have been clamoring about the Space Jam getting another run at retail.

New images have just emerged showcasing the heel details, and as you can see there is a Concord colored Jumpman logo along with the number “45” stitched onto the heel. This makes us believe that these are not the Space Jam Air Jordan 11′, but actually an Air Jordan 11 PE release instead. However, it’s the day and age of nicknames for sneakers so the mindless know what they’re talking about — we’ll continue to reluctantly call these Space Jam 11’s until the real story is told by Jordan Brand.

Another small detail that continues to be overlooked is the Jumpman logo on the left shoe looks to be facing toward the toe of the shoe. That’s something we haven’t seen on the Air Jordan 11 since 2001.

Enjoy the latest look at the upcoming ‘Space Jam’ Air Jordan 11 Retro for 2016 below and share your thoughts on the PE theme in the comment section.

  1. I am NOT spending $220 on these. I splurged for the “72-10” but I’m not going over that $200 price point anymore. Just not worth it. At $190 it just clears $207 after taxes. For RETROS??!!?!?!?!?

  2. Jordan wore 45 in 1995, and that’s when these originally released. Wouldn’t be surprised if they’re trying something new and releasing these. Any reason in particular you guys think it’s a PE and not the actual shoe releasing?

    1. This is MJ’s actual PE that he wore which is what they plan on releasing. The Space Jam 11 was Black/ White – Royal and stated Jumpman Jam on the tongue (on the original release).

  3. that correctly-facing left jumpman may be a small detail but then at least they are going back to how the original shoes were done–with symmetry. the back facing jumpman just seemed to break the flow of the design and looked off… but maybe that’s just me.
