The Air Jordan 11 ‘Defining Moments’ aka ‘DMP’ will return in 2023 and will be this year’s big Holiday release.
The ‘DMP’ Air Jordan 11 was originally released in 2006 as part of the ‘Defining Moments Pack.’ One of the more unique packages that came with the Air Jordan 6 and would release again in 2020. The 2006 release came in large unique Gold packaging that included dog tags and a booklet.
This Air Jordan 11 comes dressed in a White, Black, and Metallic Gold color combination. Utilizing White leather on the upper with Black patent leather that wraps the shoes. Highlighting the pair, we have Metallic Gold on the branding. For the 2023 release, the pair will come with high-cut patent leather, a first for the colorway, and will swap the mesh upper for leather. Other details include a White midsole and an icy translucent rubber outsole. Essentially, the pair mimics the classic ‘Concord’ Air Jordan 11 but with Metallic Gold accents.
In 2006, there was a sample version of the Air Jordan 11 ‘DMP’ that had ‘JORDAN’ written down the eyelets in Gold. We can confirm the 2023 pair will not have this element.
