This year’s most anticipated sneaker release date has been December 23rd. One of the most popular Jordan shoes of all time will release for the second time that day, the Jordan Retro 11 Cool Grey colorway. In anticipation of the upcoming release, we thought it was only appropriate to take a look back at the original release of the Jordan 11 Cool Grey in this week’s Eastbay Memory Lane post.

It was March of 2001 that saw this never before seen colorway hit the Eastbay Catalog for the only time. Although the colorway wasn’t one of the original releases of the Jordan 11 that tied to Michael Jordan’s typical Chicago Bulls or North Carolina inspired makeups, it quickly became one of the most sought after shoes of its time.

As it releases for the second time, a few changes have been made but the anticipation for the new version is still as high as it can be. As we showed you some of the Jordan Retro 11 Cool Grey Collection earlier this month, check out the catalog from March of 2001 below for some of the other releases that went along with this unforgettable shoe.
