The Air Jordan 11 Low “Concord” drops this Saturday, but how’d we get here? It’s been a long road. From unreleased OG PEs to revamped retros to random sightings, the shoe has remained mysterious over the course of the last 18 years. As we await this weekend’s drop, we take a look back at the key moments that led up to this major release.

When: June 18, 1996
Mike loves a parade. After shocking the world a year before by debuting the “Concord” Mids in his basketball comeback, MJ brought the title back to Chicago in the “Playoff” 11s. When it came time to celebrate, he rocked the unreleased “Concord” Lows. This rare sighting is particularly special as the Air Jordan 11 Low did not release with a patent leather mudguard in 1996.
