Air Jordan Cement Box Returns in 2011

So it appears as if somethings might be on the rise yet again for Jordan Brand. It has been one of the most talked about things when it comes to Jordan's over the last few years....when will we see a different box? Well, for those OG heads out there that go way back and even lovers of Jordans current day will respect this blast from the past.

Below are early shots of a possible remake of the early 90's box tops that Jordan's use to come packaged in. Expect to see a little twist from Jordan with some of the 2011 releases. We personally can't wait until they start doing this! So for all of you all that paid a higher premium just to get the shoes 2-3months earlier just might be kickin yourself....or maybe not. Let us know.

Air Jordan 13 “Playoffs”

So this is one Jordan out of the 13 series that we are really looking forward to them bringing back. They still have a tentative date for sometime in Feb of 2011 but could change at any time.

Retail will be $160 once it drops but we will keep you posted with detailed shots once we get our hands on a pair early.
