Remember the lines? Remember the unruly crowds? Remember the numerous news outlets covering the release? Remember the joy you had when you secured your pair? If you were one of the many outside of any retailer that happened to carry Jordan Brand product this time last year, you may have noticed increased security; possibly city police officers. Exactly one year ago today was one of the best, and possibly one of the worst days for the sneaker culture. The 2011 release of the Air Jordan 11 “Concord” was met with hoopla never seen before for a sneaker. Arguably the most popular shoe in the entire Air Jordan catalog, the “Concords” were a must have for any sneaker fan, and the release shined a light on some of the recent issues that have occurred regarding sneakers.
Nonetheless, the Air Jordan 11 “Concord” is one of the greatest shoes of all time. Proof the popularity has not waned was supported when the sneakers restocked randomly at Finish Line within the last month and sold out in minutes. Do you own a pair of “Concords”? Were you able to cop on the original release date? Let us know your story in the comments below, or on Twitter.
