The hype is real for the recently released Air Jordan 11 'Space Jam' sneakers produced by Nike during the holidays to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the hit cartoon basketball film of the same name way back in 1996.
According to Sneaker News, Nike’s Brand President Trevor Edwards himself stated that the Space Jam 11s had the most successful shoe launch in Nike history.
How successful? We won’t really get to know at least for now since Edwards didn’t give out the stats. But what we do know is the Space Jams bested a shoe of the same model with a different colorway.
We’re talking about the equally popular Jordan 11 “72-10” retro released in December 2015 as a tribute to Michael Jordan’s legendary performance with the Chicago Bulls during the 1995-96 NBA season.
The Space Jam 11s meanwhile were released on December 10, 2016 with a price point at $220 (roughly P11,000).
This pair of highly-coveted kicks most probably sold out on day one like other Jordan 11s but you can try your luck in e-bay but just be ready to shell out some extra and keep your eye out for bootlegs.
For now, you can check out an unboxing video of a special edition below.
