23 is Back brings you a little Michael Jordan trivia. In November last year, a photo of Michael Jordan began circulating online, which showed His Airness wearing what appeared to be a Air Jordan 11 Low “Concord” and playing beer pong. This photo was taken when Michael Jackson was apparently in Miami, relaxing and having a bit of fun by indulging in the favorite party game on the planet. Those who were more focused on the sneakers that Michael Jordan was wearing believed that they were just being teased. However, die hard Jordan fans hopeful that the Air Jordan 11 Low “Concord” would make its way to a retail release among the new Jordans 2014.
In the past, there have been instances when Jordan Brand teased its enthusiasts and fans with killer Air Jordan 11 Low pairs, but they had always fallen short of making an actual retail debut. In fact, just last year the Air Jordan 11 Low “Cool Grey” had been showcased, which turned out to be a pair made exclusively for Michael Jordan.
However, as rumors began emerging of a Summer 2014 release of the Air Jordan 11 Low “Concord”, Jordan sneaker enthusiasts once again put their hopes high. Back then, nothing had been confirmed, but based on the trend of the past few years, it seemed natural to expect a pair of the Air Jordan XI Low to be released in Summer this year.The Air Jordan 11 has always been the most beloved and iconic Air Jordan sneakers of all time. It was Michael Jordan’s idea that a formal look needed to be introduced on the court, and for the very first time, patent leather was used in an athletic shoe. The Air Jordan 11 Low “Concord,” which created a lot of buzz in the online sneaker world, featured the exact design and performance elements of the original. While the silhouette of the upcoming “Concord” pair is much sleeker, it has the same mesh upper adorned with black carbon fiber and patent leather, while subtle hints of Concord can be seen all over.
Here is some more Michael Jordan trivia from 23isBack that is sure to make Jordan fans even more excited. Many readers might not remember this, but a low-top P E of the Air Jordan XI “Concords” had actually been worn by Michael Jordan back in 1996, during the Championship ceremony. Now, for those who have not been keeping up to date or simple missed out, the 2014 version of the Air Jordan 11 Low “Concord” has actually already been released on 3rd May and is now available for $150.
Recently, an image of an Air Jordan 11 Low “Concord Laser” pair also surfaced; however, there will be no point in expecting and hoping that it will be among new Jordans 2014 that are yet to arrive. Why? Well, this particular “Concord Laser” colorway of the Air Jordan XI was made exclusively for Chi McBride, the American actor who has never settled for the usual Air Jordan pairs.
