The hype for all-red sneakers has always been grand and over the years, Jordan Brand has been contributing to. Back in 2014, it was being widely rumored and speculated that Jordan Brand had whipped up an Air Jordan 11 “Red” colorway as a Player Exclusive for Carmelo Anthony. The final photos of the sneaker had popped up online in May that year and since then, there has been absolutely no news regarding whether that sneaker will ever hit the shelves. Fortunately though, it seems that Jordan Brand has whipped up another similar Air Jordan 11 “Gym Red” colorway that is actually going to arrive at retailers later in 2017.
Some sneakerheads may have guessed from the color scheme, but for those who have not, this sneaker will actually be a part of Jordan Brand’s Holiday Air Jordan releases 2017. Partly at least, this Holiday 2017 release probably also reminds sneakerheads of the Air Jordan 11 “Red October” custom. The “Red October” colorway was one of Jordan Brand’s most popular, but it never officially made an appearance over the Air Jordan 11, or even its low-top variation. Thus, some sneaker customizer back in 2014 decided to take matters into his own hands and whipped up a “Red October” custom of the Air Jordan 11.
As of now, it is actually being reported and speculated that the Air Jordan 11 colorway featured here is the same iteration that was first unveiled as a Carmelo Anthony PE three years ago. Certain sources are claiming that it might just be the same rendition but with a few differences here and there. As can be seen, its uppers are completely dressed up in Gym Red, which includes its glossy patent leather mudguards too. White covers its heels and inner lining, while it also appears to be equipped with clean White-colored midsoles and icy, translucent outsoles.
It is definitely far too early to be anticipating Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan releases 2017 for this year’s Holiday Season, but now sneakerheads at least know one of the sneakers that will be arriving. This Air Jordan 11 “Gym Red will apparently make its retail debut on at a price of $220 on December 16th, 2017, although it is reportedly already available Kixify.
