With all the Jordan release dates 2014 that were being announced from the very beginning of this year, the second week was a major treat for fans of Jordan 11. 23 is Back had already received confirmation from a source that Jordan Brand would be releasing the “Columbia” colorway of Jordan 11. Moreover, sneakerheads had also been treated with Jordan 11 “Blackout,” which had been released on February 17th. However, earlier that week, Jordan Brand had provided fans with a glimpse at yet another great pair.
The pair was actually a sample of the “University Blue/Black-White,” which was revealed just a day after Jordan Brand had shown a sample of Jordan 10. This Air Jordan 11 features an upper in tonal University Blue with a black mesh-weave lining inside and the heel sports a white Jumpman logo. The curious thing about the preview was that this pair was dated as Spring 2010, even though they were never released in 2010 and there is still time until they are released. Similarly, Jordan 10 sample that had been previewed was also dated as Spring of 2008, even though it had never been released back then.
In addition, the colorway could be attributed to the Pantone 284 Collection that Jordan Brand had on display during 2010’s World Basketball Festival in Harlem at the “For The Love Of The Game” pop-up exhibit. However, a laser-graphic upper is not featured in the case of this pair, rather the upper of this “University Blue” sneaker has the same leather material that was featured on the “Cool Grey” of Jordan 11.
23isBack has even uncovered this Jordan 11 Retro is even being referred to as the “Pantone” colorway, but they also seem to be quite UNC-inspired. Although speculation was that this pair new jordans would be released nearer to the end of the year and it is unfortunate that the latest Jordan release dates 2014 have still not dropped any hint as to when these kicks will be hitting the shelves. Maybe in jordan 2015 release dates.
