If you struck out on the "Legend Blue" Air Jordan XIs (how?), there's actually another way you could get your hands on the coveted sneaker. You don't have to go the reseller route, but it will cost you a little more and might look slightly...different. 

Jordan Brand actually made a backpack inspired by the "Legend Blue" XIs, and went way beyond just a white mesh bag with Legend Blue accent colors. The backpack uses the actual tooling from the sneaker as the base for extra durability.

So, if you want to take matching to another level, here's your chance to cop the backpack for $250. Or, if you're extra desperate and happen to rock something like a size 20, feel free to shell out $500 to buy a set and wear them on-foot.

You can cop on Nike Store here, and from the looks of it, 'heads really are eating up the concept. The "Bred" colorway already sold out.
