Yesterday, we gave you a look at the ‘Cool Grey’ Air Jordan 1 Retro ’95 releasing here this weekend. The shoe, of course, takes its cues from the popular Air Jordan 11 highlighted in today’s Eastbay Memory Lane.
In March 2001, the yet-to-be-released retro graced our pages alongside the Air Jordan 16 and a plethora of Jordan clothing. The ‘Cool Grey’ 11 was an absolute game-changer — perhaps a catalyst for the sneaker game as we know it today. Along with the launch came mass campouts, unruly behavior at shops and some of the first national media coverage for retro sneaker releases. The shoes re-released again during the holiday season of 2010 and caused even more commotion than they did the first time around. Not part of the original Air Jordan 11 run between 1995 and 1996, the ‘Cool Greys’ are arguably the most popular retro release of all-time.
This weekend, the ‘Cool Grey’ 11 is reborn in the form of the equally iconic Air Jordan 1. The Air Jordan 1 Retro ’95 is updated with some of the 11’s most prominent features, including patent leather, carbon fiber details, unique branding elements and a translucent rubber outsole.
Before Saturday’s launch, check out this throwback Eastbay catalog page and let us know what memories you have of the first ‘Cool Grey’ 11 Retro release. Where does the shoe rank on the list of your favorite Jordan shoes?
