While we're barely entering the summer months, Jordan fans are already gearing up for the 2018 holiday season. That's when the legendary Air Jordan 11 "Concord" will make its long-awaited return to store shelves. Leaked images of the actual release are shown below, and they reveal a unique and unexpected detail: the number 45 printed on the heel, a nod to a historical quirk that saw Michael sporting a new jersey number upon his return to basketball in March of 1995. (His original no. 23 had been retired by the Chicago Bulls in the wake of what would turn out to be MJ's temporary sabbatical away from the game. Infamously, he spent that time as the most popular minor leaguer in the Chicago White Sox farm system.) The kicks are expected to hit stores on December 8th.

Release Date: 12/8/18 (Saturday)
