While most Air Jordan colorways have already two, three, or more re-releases, here’s one that we’ve been waiting over 16 years to see again. Originally released in 2001, the Air Jordan 11 Low Columbia was part of Jordan Brand’s first attempt at selling a low top version of the beloved patent leather sneaker (except for the non-patent IEs). Thanks in part to the long hiatus, the demand for this colorway is greater than ever, and this version doesn’t appear to disappoint.
Taking inspiration from MJ’s North Carolina days, this pair sports a white leather base with matching fat white laces. University Blue patent leather really brings this sneaker to life, along with University Blue graphics on the tongue and heel. The midsole is molded in the traditional white, while an icy blue sole gives the sneaker a clean finish.
An exact release date for the Columbia XI Lows has not yet been released, but you can expect to see these on store shelves sometime in May, priced at $175 for mens sizes and $130 for kids. Stay tuned for an update in the near future with the official release date and more detailed photos.
