The Air Jordan 11 ‘Space Jam’ will be the 2016 Christmas release. It appears that Jordan Brand is finally giving the fans what they want while celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Air Jordan 11 and the film.
Air Jordan 11 Space Jam Details
The ‘Space Jam’ Air Jordan 11 was not an original release in 1996, however an extremely limited amount of pairs were produced exclusively for Michael Jordan and the movie ‘Space Jam’ while also wearing them during games. Fast forward to 2000, the brand released the Space Jams for the first time to the public. 9 years later JB would release this pair once again during the Holiday season.
Launching true to form, the ‘Space Jam’ Air Jordan 11 2016 release comes with Black patent leather and mesh through the uppers. Concord lands on the stitched Jumpman while White runs through the midsole while a translucent outsole is intact. Other details include the number 45 stitched on the heel instead of 23 while Nike Air is placed on the insoles. Overall, this pair will resemble that of Michael Jordan’s PE.
Air Jordan 11 Space Jam Looney Tunes Packaging
Jordan Brand will have special packaging with the 2016 Space Jam Air Jordan 11 which will have a Loony Tunes theme. The number 45 will be on the tissue paper while Bugs Bunny and The Monsters hands will interlink for the number 23. Looney Tunes official branding is then spotted on the bottom of the box while the plastic insert will have a dotted XI.

Update: Going by _P02345 on Twitter who is more of a sneaker informant, as stated the 20th anniversary release of the Air Jordan 11 ‘Space Jam’ will be more like Michael Jordan’s PE. The difference between the released version and PE is the use of concord purple on the Jumpman and other accents instead of Varsity Royal. Meaning the 2016 release will be different than the 2009 release.
