Dedicated to the diehard fans of Jumpman, the Air Jordan XI Retro “Gratitude” model ends a year of Jordan Brand releases with a bang. The return of the cult-classic silhouette celebrates a cherished colorway and fanbase that have shaped Jordan Brand’s culture. Recalling the revered 1995 “Concord” colorway, the new iteration gets a modern makeover with satin accents and luxe leather touches. Set to release Saturday, December 9, this drop succeeds the limited shock drop of the shoe on the SNKRS app on November 14.

With the release of the AJ XI Gratitude, Jordan Brand memorializes Michael Jordan’s monumental moments on the court and toasts to the legendary label’s day-one fans. A staple for sneakerheads, the silhouette originally released in 2006 as part of the “Defining Moments Pack” alongside the Air Jordan 6, but undergoes an upgrade unlike any other. The revived design sports an embossed gold Jumpman symbol on the heel but trades the original’s ballistic mesh with white leather on the upper, black overlays and mudguard.

The fan-favorite sneaker features sleek satin lining at the collar. “Quality Basketball Product Created in Gratitude by the Greatest Player Ever” is stamped on the tongue as an added homage to the famed athlete. Collectors may notice the quote slightly differs from other AJ11 predecessors. The AJ XI Gratitude debuts just in time for gift-giving season with sizing for you and the loyal fans of the Jordan Brand in your family.

Set to drop on the SNKRS app on December 9, the Air Jordan XI Retro “Gratitude” retails for $230 USD for adults. App users will be the first to know when the sneaker goes live. See below for full pricing.

Adult: $230 USD
Big Kids: $185 USD
Little Kids: $100 USD
Baby / Toddler: $85 USD
Crib Bootie: $60
