Air Jordan 11s are a Christmas tradition, with Jordan Brand usually releasing a different colorway of that all-important shoe every December. This year, it upped the ante by bringing out two pairs for the end of the year: the "Win Like '82" in November and the "Win Like '96" in December. On top of that, there was this exclusive Air Jordan 11 sent out to a friend of the brand for Christmas.
The sneaker, shown on Instagram by Carlos Prieto (owner of Solefly sneaker boutique in Miami and brother-in-law to Michael Jordan), is a Jordan 11 Low with a special Santa Claus tongue tag. This pair was accompanied by a sketch and a message from Jordan and Tinker Hatfield encouraging the recipient to "enjoy your Christmas sneaks."
The present is slightly less exciting than it could have been given that the base shoe appears to be the standard "Barons" Air Jordan 11 Low that released in May 2017, but it's still a more impressive holiday haul than this writer pulled in.
