One of the most hyped of shoes to drop this year is just over a week from its official release, the Gamma Blue Air Jordan 11.

The first time Gamma Blue has touched the Jordan 11, which seems to be the theme for Jordan Brand this Winter (Jordan 12’s also releasing in the same colorway).

For the shoes, which have a predominate black uppers (mesh and patent leather), small hints of gamma blue and varsity maize make it’s way giving them some pop. Added in is the blue translucent sole which actually doesn’t look bad on this particular colorway.

If you’re wondering how are the quality is on the Gamma Blue 11’s? Sorry to burst your bubble but more than likely you will be disappointed. The materials used are fine, traditional patent leather and mesh that are comparable to the Bred 11 that released last year (Concord and Space Jam seemed to have higher quality materials). What Nike/Jordan Brand failed on was the construction. Glue stains can be seen on the uppers. In fact, small separation can be seen where the sole and midsole meets and where the patent leather comes into the midsole.

Releasing December 21st 2013. This is a general release so a lot of stores will have pairs and you can expect restocks to happen in the near future.
