Arguably the hottest release of 2012—with the exception of the Galaxy Foams—is set to hit shelves again this Saturday. After dropping in limited quantities in December of last year, Nike will be restocking the Air Jordan XI’s in the black/red colorway at numerous retailers. The ‘Bred’ colorway of course is the one that MJ (and nearly the entire Bulls team for that matter) wore in their record setting 95-96 season where they finished with 72 wins and His Airness brought home the title on father’s day against the Sonics. Some contend that this is the greatest Jordan colorway ever made and while it’s up for debate, you can’t deny that this is probably one of the top five J’s of all-time.

The ‘Bred’ colorway of the XI’s will be released at selected FootAction, Foot Locker, and Finish Line retailers Saturday morning. Nike.com will also have them in stock, but be prepared for the site to crash before you can get a pair in your cart. Expect the lines to be long and it’d be worth calling your local shop to see if they’re opening early. The BRED XI’s will retail for $185 plus tax, so don’t miss out on your chance to own a piece of history.
