It was only a couple of days ago that it was revealed that Jordan Brand would be curating a new rendition of the Air Jordan XI ‘Blackout’, a sneaker that originally debuted in the Air Jordan ‘Blackout’ Sample Collection in 2011. Now, we’re getting our first at the sneaker that has officially been renamed the Air Jordan XI ‘Prom Night’.
There are some major differences and vast improvements from the Air Jordan XI ‘Blackout’ Sample that we unveiled not too long ago. Firstly, the sneaker ditches the mesh and tumbled heel panel for a luxe, black nubuck base complete with a matching original cut patented leather mudguard, and embossed Jumpman logo to compliment the mudguard, a black midsole, and icy translucent outsole to close out the nearly monochromatic sneaker.
It definitely didn’t take long for the Jumpman to roll out the Air Jordan XI ‘Prom Night’ which is set to drop on May 26th for a retail price tag of $220. Let us know if you were feeling the sample based ‘Blackout’ Air Jordan XI or this brand new ‘Prom Night’ Air Jordan XI better as well as if these joints are worth picking up in the comment section below.
