Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors are chasing the record for the best regular season in NBA history, a record held by the Michael Jordan-led 1995-96 Chicago Bulls. The next Air Jordan silhouette to hit stores is a tribute to the Bulls’ legendary season.
The Air Jordan XI 72-10 arrives on Saturday and will retail for $220. To pick up the shoes via Nike’s online store, customers must enter a raffle by heading to the brand’s raffle page (nike.com/thedraw), verify their account, enter the drawing from 8 a.m.-10 a.m. and wait to be notified if you’re a winner.
The Air Jordan XI, complete with its premium tumbled leather and microfiber suede upper and its iconic patent leather rand around the shoe, boasts a predominantly black and white colorway with red accents that pays tribute to the record-breaking season. The shoe also features a red and black carbon fiber shank plate and a clear outsole.
What makes this shoe different from the original is the message printed on the inside of the tongue that reads, “72-10 QUALITY INSPIRED BY THE GREATEST SEASON LED BY THE GREATEST PLAYER EVER.”
The Air Jordan XI 72-10 was first displayed during the Jordan Brand holiday preview in September.
