During the 1995 playoffs, Michael Jordan stepped onto the court against the Orlando Magic wearing black shoes with a purple stitched Jumpman logo, a carbon fibre spring plate, and a quick-lace system. These were the original Air Jordan 11s, designed for his all-time classic film Space Jam, a masterpiece of American cinema, despite what those idiot critics say

The shoes, like the awesome movie, have become something of legend. As the story goes, only five pairs of the original Air Jordan 11s were made, and because of its popularity the shoe has been re-released twice, most recently in 2009. With Space Jam 2 due out in 2017, Nice Kicks has confirmed that the Air Jordan 11 will return at the end of the year, and they've acquired our first look at the shoe. Look at that photo: Really brings you back, doesn't it? Yeah, that was 20 years ago... 

Now relive your misspent youth with some Space Jam clips:
