For the first time since 2012, the "Bred" Air Jordan XI is returning. This retro edition stays true to the original version that released with "23" printed on the heel and a higher patent leather cut to better resemble the shoes worn by Michael Jordan during the mid-'90s. 

While much has been said about the "Bred" colorway's history during the lead up to this release, there are some facts about the Air Jordan XI itself that may not be quite as evident to newcomers. Brush up on your knowledge here and pick up the "Bred" Jordan XI at select retailers this Saturday, Dec. 14 for $220.
