This year, Jordan Brand gave us two Air Jordan 11 releases for the holidays, the Air Jordan 11 Legend Blue and Air Jordan 11 Pantone – as part of the Air Jordan Ultimate Gift of Flight Pack.
The color “Legend Blue” was highly advertised throughout each silhouette, as one features minor accents of the Blue, while the other is fully dressed in it.
The Air Jordan 11 Retro Legend Blue is finally set to debut this Saturday, December 20th, 2014 at select Jordan Brand retailers.
Dressed in the original “Columbia” color scheme, but now named “Legend Blue” the iconic Air Jordan 11 silhouette comes in a mix of patent leather and smooth leather in all White, with a tongue tag, Jumpman logo and translucent outsole tinted in Legend Blue.
The Air Jordan 11 Retro Pantone from the Air Jordan Ultimate Gift of Flight Pack will complete this years Air Jordan 11 holiday releases. Unlike the Air Jordan 11 Legend Blue, this Retro 11 will release along side the Air Jordan XX9 in a limited edition pack.
This special version of the Air Jordan 11 features Legend Blue on the patent leather and smooth leather upper, and a White midsole and translucent outsole tinted in Legend Blue.
Some of the major difference from the releases begin on the interior, as the Pantone 11s use more of a luxury styled inner liner – similar to what we’ve seen on the Anniversary 11s. The Legend Blue pair was built with a full mesh tongue and leather upper, while the Pantone 11s has a more smooth nubuck-like leather build. Finishing up the comparison is the outsoles. The Legend Blue 11s came with a more milky/tinted outsole, while the nike kd 11 stayed more traditional with a Blue icy translucent outsole.
Check out these exclusive comparison photos of both “Pantone” and “Legend Blue” Retro 11s below and for everyone planning on picking up the Air Jordan Basketball shoes of Flight Pack tomorrow, December 23rd, good luck and please be safe.
