One of the most sought-after Holiday Jordan releases 2017 is without a doubt none other than the Air Jordan 11 “Win Like ’96.” Both the colorway and its nickname are a reference to the 1996 NBA championship victory that the Chicago Bulls managed to secure thanks to the leadership of Michael Jordan and several others. Of course, the Bulls had to go through the Miami Heat, New York Knicks, Orlando Magic and the Seattle Supersonics. While it is still not officially time for the Air Jordan 11 “Win Like ’96” to make its retail debut, Jordan Brand apparently decided to offer it as an early Christmas present.
The Air Jordan 11 was the model that Michael Jordan rocked during his unforgettable run and that is why it was chosen for this “Win Like ‘96” colorway. In celebration of the memory and Christmas, Jordan Brand placed an Air Jordan 11 “Win Like ’96” box at five specific malls in different states across the U.S. The malls where the box was placed included the Southcenter Mall in Seattle, the Aventura Mall and the Florida Mall in Florida, the Roosevelt Field Mall in New York City, and the North Riverside Park Mall in Illinois. Even the Santa Claus at each mall was laced up in a pair of the sneaker.
It cannot be denied, the Air Jordan 11 “Win Like ‘96” does look like the ideal Christmas-themed sneaker because of its color scheme. In fact, it even looked like the perfect match with Santa’s costume. Of course, that is because the premium and patent leather uppers are dressed up in a vibrant Red hue, the same color as Santa’s costume. The sneaker is also equipped with clean White-colored midsoles just like Santa’s beard, and last but not least, icy translucent outsoles that add the finishing touch, reminding everyone of the wintry weather.
As sneakerheads may already know, the Air Jordan 11 “Win Like ‘96” will be officially available at a price of $220 on December 9th, 2017, and it might not be arriving alone. There is a possibility that the Air Jordan 32 “Win Like ‘96” may also end up hit the shelves on the same day and if it does, it will retail for $160.
