Air Jordan 11 “Concord” – possibly the most famous sneaker ever created – released in November 1995, finally giving fans the chance to partake in the first hot sneaker release since Michael Jordan’s return the previous spring. Jordan himself debuted the Concords during Game 1 of the ’95 Eastern Conference second round against the Orlando Magic, likely triggering a “What are those?” moment for watchers around the world.
At that time, only Air Jordan 10 was in the marketplace and there was no “real time” Internet/social media as we know it today. The shoe unveil was truly a surprise. Designer Tinker Hatfield has shared the story of Nike rushing to make sure MJ had enough pairs to get him through the playoffs. Then, of course, Jordan took the 11’s profile to the next level for the 1995-96 season, leading the Bulls to an historic 72-10 record and the franchise’s fourth NBA title win.
Take a cruise through eBay to find quality pairs of the 1995 original now.
