First Look: Air Jordan 11 "Concord"

You know what it is. This classic Air Jordan 11 has been on the waiting list of many sneakerheads for years. And following news that it’d be returning later this year, we get our first look at 2011′s “Concord” Retro. It looks like Jordan Brand has decided to take it back to the OG days with a blue icy bottom, though this year’s is far darker than the original. Naturally, the upper pins black patent leather to a white mesh and leather base. Expect this one to drop in just under five months at the height of the holiday season.

  1. Love 11s . . . 11s were actually the first a pair of jordans I saw…. the BRED 11s back in the day original release, rocked by this sexy ass female next to my cousin…. STill to this day my FAV even though I missed out on the Countdown Pack :-( ?. . . I’ll be getting these definitely?

  2. all u young hypebeasts ….. the blue soles kill this shoe … looks like hot shit … bet the quallity is crap too …DMP’S bitch

      • Yeah I was gonna buy Space Jams from them, but thankfully I heard about all the people who disappointed because they were given b grades

        • yeah unfortunately i spent like $260 on the cement 3s. i knew something was up because i got em like a week after i ordered them, they didnt come in a cement retro box and when i put them on they were loose in the toe box area (which is the biggest sign for b grades). needless to say lesson learned and i was lucky enough to find the real ones in store

          • I ended up ordering my space jams from sneaker authority, the guys from long island. There was a stitching problem on the heel, where “23″ is. Not enough for me to second guess my purchase though, Space Jams are maybe my grails.

      • Hey Joe, who the hell are you to certify a shoe as “B” grade. I really don’t believe that your blind ass is the one making the triple “A” grade. Get a life and go read a fucking book and let the people who got that cheese and not that change go for theirs. ?Real talk dumbass!!!!!

  3. wow they f#ck it up again! how does JB f#ck up a classic like this? i’m beyond pissed with the blue ice sole. wtf why?! if it’s not broke dont fix it wow!..

    • Dont u realize all the Icy soles are comign with a blue tint from here on out? So dont buy em & stop crying boohooo

      • Amen…If enough of you folk that cry on blogs about changes in these sneakers actually decide to do something about it instead of “copping em anyway” maybe JB would go back to the all clear sole and say, “forget about the blue tint that prolongs this nasty yellowing process of the sole…even tho the blue tint will eventually fade away, let’s do away with it now cause these people don’t understand what goes into making a sneaker”. I don’t mind the blue cause one, I know it’ll fade away and two, My sneaker will look brand new a lot longer. Still a beautiful shoe, Stop acting like you wont cop.?
        Have a great day.

      • so they raised the price 5 more freaking dollars and the blk and cement 3′s will be 160.00 jordan is tripping but i will have both smh

      • The clear soles oxidize over time whether they’re worn or not. In turn the clear sole turns an ugly yellowish color too and looks used or old. The ice blue might prevent that look.

  4. if you don’t like them, don’t buy them! Save the drama for your mama. Everybody that’s hatin on them will be waiting in line tryin to get them this Christmas

      • You’ll spend relatively the same for a pre-order & Space Jams, IF you’re looking in the right places. I’m not guaranteeing you will, but DO NOT go to FCNY/LA or OSneaker for Space Jams though! I’ll just leave it at that!!

  5. I paid $32.69 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Sony laptop for $94.87 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $51.77 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

  6. I HAVE TO GET THESE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, SO FRESH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Copped…Idc if I gotta drop pre order price on deez…but I gotta get em….imma tryin order em retail price first tho…

  8. Do they use the same shoe mold on all the 11′s? Is it me or does the shoe mold look a little funny? Ive been waiting for these for a while, but I’m not camping out for them!!! In my opinion the spacejams looked better in the 2000′s retros.The 2000 concords shoe looks a little different.

  9. definitely autocoppin these. they’ll go great along side the low XI IE ‘s white/black. and in my opinion the blue tint will last longer than the regular clear bottom. it’ll turn yellow but not as fast cuz its blue. Im hoping and prayin next in 2012 holiday season is the columbia’s. i need those baddddddddd. missed out when they came out in 96.

  10. this blue sole is a good thing, next year is probably columbias, which means there gonna release with a blue sole! been waiting for ttht blue sole ish, on the concords it looks hot, THANK YOU JB

  11. I know this is off topic, but can we please get a release date for the retro Jordan 5 black metallics. It’s almost August and some people are saying the 6th and the others are saying the 20th, which one is it Jordan brand?

  12. JB & Nike kill me with these blue ice bottoms, dey need 2 stop, the clear, or even a lighter blue would b understandable but its lyk dey’re adding another color to the silhouette. Not a good look, passing these up, Hopefully the 2012 X’s wont b as destroyed. Dey tell me2 buy OG’s, but i dont have $300 to put up, but i guess dese pass ups ad up huh…

    • You need to go back and look at the Nike ad, for the original Air Jordan XI Concord… there was NO CLEAR SOLE!!

      These will be as close to the original as you can have, if you didn’t have them in 1996. You aren’t passing on these because of a damn sole, you can lie to us/yourself all you want!?

      The truth shall set you fre!

  13. ?looks fine to me….i didn’t double ip on the SJs or the CGs but i’m going in 2x on these….maybe 3….

  14. I don’t ” give a shut the front door” this is a must cop for me, my 2000′s are now used as cleaning shoes, been waiting for a while, wish I didn’t sell my DMP 11, oh well, these I will be getting.

  15. Do I like the blue tint? No. Am I going to sleep on these? Hell no because everyone who does will be crying like a bitch, just like they did when they slept on the Space Jams, or more recently the Cool Greys or even the South Beaches. Gotta cop these.

  16. The reason for the ice blue tint to the soles is it slows the yellowing. Which was the number one complaint on the shoes.

  17. I paid $31.63 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Sony laptop for $93.88 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.79 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

    • yes, the shape is off …. but, I’ll wait and see what the “official” pics look like before making up my mind if I’m coppin’

      • Tell me about it. ?So let me get this straight: with higher prices (now $180), lower quality build, lower quality materials, slightly deformed mold, and more unnecessary ‘hype’, are the shoe zombies really going to buy all in on this release? ?Seriously, Jordan is getting a lot of butt sex from a lot of you guys.

  18. Helll YEeeeeee NICCAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Finally It Happened…..I got rid of all my ISHHH
    from my credit report y’all – I was in deep for 5 years.? Coudn’t buy
    sheeet.? Just approved for that 25k loan to buy a new CAMAARO!!!

    IF YOU GOT PROBLEMS WITH THAT credit SHYYYYT, GET IT CLEAN y’all quick.? YOu
    can get yours too, call these people at 877-647-1477. All it took is
    three months and $44 and all my Ish was gone.?

    My homeboy was in terrible
    shape too, and he clean!? Hit em up!!!!!!

  19. the soles jus look extra blue lookin from the side but from the bottom they look straight…its auto matic copp 2x

  20. i got ds space jamas and cool grey for sale , LA area….i love these concords , its a new era in? the sneaker world lets appreciate them? and keep the love going…

  21. Classic sneaker the blue soles are ok as long as they don’t yellow like the retro’s. I wonder if the laces are fat like the OG’s.

  22. The reason they r making the soles blues on jordans that have soles is because the clear soles yellow faster good look n the feature if u don’t like blue soles….ima b n line early bird for these…

  23. The og had a icy blue sole but not as blue as this……. The retro had a more clear tint…. To me this is closer to the og…. I wonder y people complain about blue soles so much….. Its not that big a deal…. I would complain more about slight colorway changes like how they gonna change the last shots back heel tab… Thats bitchable… But i ges if u want ogs spend dat cheese

  24. im sick of this new shape they got…. i hate retros sumtimes…. if they raise tha patent leather up then its all good… and take tha weak ass blue gum bottom off and give the clear icy sole… fuck life

  25. The OGs Were Not This Tinted So Im Not Feelin That All The Way, But This Is Still A Must Have For The JO Fans……You Kno Im Grabbin Em

  26. That’s a beautiful ass sneaker… I’m just glad they don’t feature the 45 like Drake’s in an earlier pic from this year… Fakes???

  27. The space jams did not have and icy bottom and they still are great ,why lo key mess up the best color way of the 11s with the icy blue bottoms. I mean the icy bottoms look great on the 11 low ie black/white but looking at the photo of the new concords reminds me of those weak nike sharkley’s with the bottom looking so dark blue. Yes i would still ?cop because i have been waiting so long like everyone else but man at least make them og even though they will have a retro title! I can appreciate the science in having the icy bottoms as a designer my self… but pulling one of the best shoes i have ever had as a kid out of the box again and something looks different…man..crushes my heart!..lol like they really look like the colorway on the box should say wht/blck/baby blue/indigo? I just keep going back and forth between my OG screen saver and this post and im hurting more and more!

  28. naaah, i’ll be purposely yellowing the soles on these. JB is RUINING all these retro 11′s with this blue bottom. it’s beyond annoying.

  29. Let’s compare the moderately-deformed shape of the 2011 XI shoe to the one above. ?Such a big difference, but people will buy JB’s overhyped, overpriced, low-quality retros, and that is exactly the expectation of the company.

  30. @NuttyKicks:disqus?-?Why are you comparing sneakers made FIFTEEN YEARS AGO to ones of today? Stop living in the past! There will NEVER be a sneaker made 1000% “to-the-T” of the original models, by Jordan Brand!

    You can’t name me ONE model, made after 2005, that matched up to it’s predecessor’s silhouette! Something has ALWAYS ended up “off,” vs. the models 1-14 (even the 15′s & 16′s) and will be that way for years to come!

    • i think what he’s comparing is the quality. if you’re gonna retro something, at least come close to it. and if you’re gonna retro something, be sure the people are gonna pay with their money for the quality you’re putting out. we all know JB has been dropping the ball on that department.?

  31. Helll YEeeeeee NICCAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. I’m convinced that the new blue sole always photographs much darker than it actually is. If you’ve got the Wolf Greys or the Cool Greys, you know the soles aren’t as dark as the online pics. We know any retro is always slightly different than its previous release, and these aren’t different enough to pass on. Def cop.

  33. Today I was wondering when were NK gunna start doing the closer looks & first looks about the Air Jordan 11 “Concords” & here it is, I got these for christmas when I was two yyears old my dad still has the picture I’m getting these this christmas

  34. That sole man :/ I will cop a pair or 2, one to keep, one to soleswap, but im good with rockin my 2001 pair for a couple more years

  35. Let me preface this by saying that I think the colorway and silhoutte is dope on the concords, and most 11′s in general.? However, I just can’t ever dig something that has patent leather on it.? I know I’ll take some heat for saying this, but I’m going to pass on the patent leather alone.? Any shoe for that reason.? I think patent leather is wack as a hell.? Otherwise, it’s such a dope shoe.? Anyone else have issues with patent leather?? I think smooth or tumbled leather would look so much better.? I’ll save my money and pass on these, and just wait on the cement 4′s in February.? It’s good to see mad people excited for these though, I know a lot of heads have been waiting for the concords to drop.

  36. Man these concords are a great way 2 finish the holiday season..can’t wait..the clock has started.

  37. It’s true though the shape does look a bit off, atleast the upper. I’m just wondering what size are the concords in these previews? The large size can initially cause an illusion and make it seem weird in shape. Also as i said previously i would really appreciate to see an image of the shoes with the inserts and the box.

  38. Pretty tired of ppl complainin about the icy blue sole. Stop crying. It’s called retro for a reason, it has to have some change. OG are original. Why the hell would they make an exact copy? plus the icy blue helps the sole look newer longer. Stop stop the whining. Sound like freakin 12yr olds.

  39. Your such a good writer I would like to see what you have to say about When will smartphones start using FOLED? I have read other writer articles about this matter, but I think you would be able to shed a new light on the suject.
