'09 vs. '16.
The "Space Jam" Air Jordan 11 will be returning this Saturday and if you missed out on the original pair or the 2009 retro, you'll be happy to know there will be plenty to go around on December 10th.
However, the Space Jam 11s look noticeably different this time around especially when compared to the '09 retro.
The glaring difference is the patent leather which is cut much higher on the 2016 pair than it was in '09, and features a white trim. As a whole, the 2016 Space Jams are slightly taller than its '09 counterpart and also feature the "45" on the heel as opposed to the traditional "23."
The concord accents and blue tint on the sole are also more reminiscent of the OG version which really stands out when compared to the 2009 joint.
Take a look at some side by side images of the 2016 and 2009 Space Jam 11s in the gallery above, courtesy of Kicksvision and Stadium Goods, and set aside $220 if you plan on copping a pair this weekend.
