Jordan Brand will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Space Jam with a re-release of the classic Air Jordan 11 that was originally debuted by Michael Jordan in the film and later on the court.
20 years later, the “Space Jam” Air Jordan 11 will be receiving a remastered original makeover similar to what Michael Jordan originally wore during the 1995 NBA Playoffs with its traditional all-Black mesh and a higher-cut patent leather upper. Other details include a Concord Jumpman, stitched ’45’ on the back heel (not ’23), Nike Air insoles, White midsole and a translucent outsole, along with the Jumpman/Jordan inscribed on the tongue tab.

There’s also a special graphic of both Bugs Bunny’s and The Monsters’ arms wrapping around each-other to create the number ’23.’ Finishing off the packaging design is a dot pattern ‘XI’ on the plastic cover.
