With only days away from the release of the 2012 Air Jordan 11 Bred we dug in the archive to bring out the Original Air Jordan 11 Bred to do a comparison.

The Original Air Jordan 11 Black/Red released in 1995. This was the first time an Air Jordan saw patent leather.

Comparing the 1995 to the 2012, of course their are quality issues. The patent leather on the original and mesh is of higher quality. The carbon fiber on the 1995 is a bit lighter shade than the 2012, and of course Nike Air is present on the insole of the 1995 version.

The 2012 Air Jordan XI (11) Bred releases December 21st 2012, and will retail for $185. Good luck to everyone that is camping or entered a raffle.
