The Air Jordan XI seems to be on the top of almost everyone's "favorite Jordan" list, and whenever they are re-released (which is becoming an end-of-the-year tradition) pandemonium ensues. Originally released in '95, the Air Jordan XI is synonymous with Michael Jordan's return to basketball and the Chicago Bulls' NBA all-time best 72-win season. They are available in several colorways, with this Black/Varsity Red-White model often referred to as the "Breds" or "Playoffs" edition. This extremely sought-after and iconic sneaker features a black Cordura upper with wraparound patent leather, rope laces, carbon fiber spring plate, white midsole, and a red translucent outsole. Many would debate that this is the greatest Jordan of all time, how do you rate them?

As the 2012-13 NBA season quickly approaches we are seeing many signature sneakers being released from an array of different brands. Yet, the Jordan CP3.VI "Nitro Pack" may be the flashiest of the bunch. Inspired by the Chris Paul's super quick and explosive skills on the hardwood, his love for fast cars, and the Los Angeles street racing scene, which was made popular by "The Fast and the Furious" movie series, this vibrant pack includes three colorways that demand attention, including Metallic Silver/Purple, Atomic Green/University Blue, and Total Orange/Green. To complete the inspired racing theme, all three models in the Nitro Pack also feature carbon-fiber accents, and NOS tank graphics on the insoles. Get them at Sneakerhead while you can.

With so many Olympics-inspired sneakers coming out this year it's hard to pick a favorite, but for many, the Air Jordan "Golden Moment" Pack is it. The pack includes a clean Air Jordan VI in a white leather upper with gold laces, trim and midsole. Not to be outdone, the other pair in the pack is an impeccable Air Jordan VII in black leather and nubuck with a gold Jumpman, midsole, and heel tab. Plus, to make the pack complete, Jordan Brand packaged it in an exclusive double box, and provided a red, white and blue American-themed bag for each pair. You can definitely see why most sneakerheads agree that the Air Jordan "Golden Moment" Pack should be standing at the top of the podium in 2012.

There's often a debate among sneakerheads about which Air Jordan is the best. Is it the Air Jordan 1 for starting it all? The Air Jordan IV for their classic silhouette? The Air Jordan XI for their versatile patent appeal? Or maybe it's the Air Jordan III for so many reasons? No matter which Air Jordan tops your list, the Air Jordan III deserves a mountain of respect.
The Air Jordan III was the first Air Jordan designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield, who went on to design many iconic Air Jordan sneakers, among other influential Nike models. The Air Jordan III was also the first to showcase a Visible Air Sole unit. And, the first time the world got a glimpse of arguably the most recognizable icon in sports, the 'Jumpman' logo, it was on the Air Jordan III. The 2011 version of the "White/Cement Grey" colorway is almost identical to the original released in 1988, but to the dismay of many, the 'Nike' on the heel has been replaced by the aforementioned 'Jumpman' logo. Yet, it's still easy to see why this is one of the most anticipated releases of 2011. Look for them on Sneakerhead.com soon.

There hasn't been a shortage of Air Jordan II colorways to choose from this year. We have seen the re-release of the OG White/Black/Red, the striking University Blue model and the welcomed Black/White color scheme. But, Jordan Brand's Air Jordan II barrage is not over. Introducing the Air Jordan II 'Candy' Pack. This undeniably vibrant pack features three models with distinct colorways that are impossible to overlook, including Classic Green, Varsity Red and Del Sol. All three models that make up the 'Candy' Pack feature a tonal upper with a mix of nubuck and snake skin leather, black laces, a white midsole and "JORDAN" written on the heel and outsole (instead of the original "NIKE"). A quick skim of comments on sneaker forums regarding the Air Jordan II 'Candy' Pack, and you'll see that everyone has a different "must cop" color in mind. Although, whatever distinctly bright color you decide to go with, it will surely satisfy your sweet-colored desire.

This year has been big if you're an Air Jordan II (2) fan. Jordan Brand has released this iconic basketball sneaker in many new vivid colorways, including the Air Jordan II University Blue/Black, and the hits keep coming. The Air Jordan II Black/White sports a fresh color scheme that rides the line between subtle and stunning. They sport a black nubuck upper, white lace loops, white Air Jordan "Wings" logo, and a white bottom sole. Jordan Brand then added a little pop with a glossy side panel and white piping. Many are comparing the Air Jordan II Black/White to the Air Jordan II Chromes, and I think that it is a fair comparison. But, both models are definitely appealing in their own respective colorways.

This new colorway is definitely one that original fans should come to love. Though lacking the fanfare of the Air Jordan VI (6) and Air Jordan IX (9) retros, the Air Jordan II (2) retro basketball shoe is certainly having a good year of releases. We've seen the Bulls-colorway edition, the Silver Anniversary edition in stark white and silver, and the Premio Bin 23 edition, among a few others, and now fans of this model get a chance to get their hands on a slickly-styled university blue and black model. Featuring a mixture of materials like suede and pebbled leather, the upper appears in mostly the shade of blue that Jordan knew well while at University of North Carolina. Black accents appear throughout the upper and on the heel and midsole. This model also boasts an icy blue outsole to add to the intrigue. This is a first on the Air Jordan 2 (II) retro basketball shoe, and it does not disappoint.

As yet another Air Jordan 6 (VI) Retro basketball shoe released for 2010, this pair boasts a White and Varsity Red color-up. This particular version of the Air Jordan 6 consists of a color scheme made up to resemble that of the White/Infrared version released back in 1991. First reports labeled this as using Infrared, but like the Black/Varsity Red pair releasing earlier this year, the switch-a-roo was done by Jordan and the varsity red was used instead. The entirety of the upper of this retro basketball shoe is done with white leather, including the perforated sections on forefoot, mid-panel, and near the ankle. For the midsole, Varsity Red comes in to play, as well as white. One element we can all be glad Jordan Brand didn't switch out is the icy clear outsole standard on all 6 colorways. The liner and 2-holed tongue both use black, finishing off the classic Bulls color-up.

The newly-designed Air Jordan Rare Air basketball shoe has been one of the most talked-about sneakers over the past month. This pair features a white/black-cement grey color scheme. Many sneakerheads will warm up to the Jordan Rare Air model after seeing this colorway. As opposed to the aforementioned Black/Red-Cement Grey color-up, this particular Air Jordan Rare Air basketball shoe features an all-leather base. As for other design cues, monochromatic cement print designs appear on the heel and toe area, while a speckled section alongside the midsole may remind many of the Air Jordan IV. In addition, black hints, such as the lace lock and the Jumpman logo, are paired with the midsole of the same color to give this Jordan Rare Air a nice color contrast.

The newest colorway of the Air Jordan 2010 basketball shoe has just been released and this new colorway may be the best one yet. The Jumpman torch has been passed to Dwayne Wade, who may be making some United Center memories of his own next season. Dwayne Wade is a premier free agent this summer, and there's a lot of speculation that he may put ink to paper for his hometown Chicago Bulls. For Bulls fans, that would mean that they'd once again floor a team with a realistic chance at competing for a championship. For sneakerheads, it would mean the return of the Air Jordan to Chicago's hard court. Perhaps, one of the shoes we'd see D-Wade wear in the Windy City is this "Blackout" Air Jordan 2010. The basketball shoe features a black and dark charcoal upper comprised of suede, perforated leather and patent leather. The trademark clear window appears on the side panels, while an icy blue tint on the sole reveals the red Zoom Air unit.

Derek Jeter won his fifth World Series this past season. Celebrate with his new pair of sneakers! The Air Jordan Jeter Throwback training shoe features a sleek look that ties it into the rest of the Jordan brand, plus stylish details under the tongue and on the back of the heel that are unique to Jeter's achievements throughout his career. The upper is made of leather and synthetic leather with a quarter overlay system that provides a lockdown, performance fit. For the ninth shoe in the series, the Jordan brand team decided to pay tribute to nine defining moments in Derek's career. Lubrano and Jeter worked together to decide exactly which moments they most wanted to celebrate. From there, Lubrano was given the task of incorporating the shoes on Derek's feet during each of those moments into a single shoe, which resulted in the Air Jordan Jeter Throwback training shoe. Rather than going the literal route, Lubrano created a much more subtle hybrid design, which includes the Jumpman Jordan tag on the tongue featured on the Air Jordan XI, Air Jordan IX, and Air Jordan VI.

Though the powder blue Air Jordan 9 Retro has always been a favorite amongst Jordan fanatics, it has remained one of the few models that the brand has not produced a retro version of. Until this year, of course. Until this year, of course. The retro version of this Air Jordan 9 basketball shoe, which has just released, uses University Blue as opposed to its original dark powder blue color. Other than the slight color change and the 23 being stitched on the back of each shoe, this retro remains true to the original version. After releasing the stark white Silver Anniversary edition of the Air Jordan IX (9), Jordan Brand has shown a few more exciting models to whet the palate of its fans. This Air Jordan 9 Retro basketball shoe has been a highly-anticipated one as well. The North Carolina blue appears on the lining and midsole, while the white on white upper is broken up only by the embroidered "23? on the heel and the Jumpman on the outsole. The tongue and laces are black to give a bit more contrast.

The 2010 barrage of Air Jordan VI (6)Retro Basketball shoe releases continues, and this time in an unexpected manner–a Los Angeles Lakers colorway. First up this year was the black and varsity red version, and next to come is the 'Oreo' (black and white), and the Pistons colorways, not to mention the 'motorsports' and white and red versions. The upper of this Air Jordan 6 (VI) Retro model is comprised of a 3M reflective material as well as a black suede. The midsole is black, which contrasts with an icy clear outsole. The Lakers colors appear only in the contrast stitching on the upper and in the embroidery on the heel, but it gives the retro basketball shoe a theme that is undeniable. With the Air Jordan being a typically Chicago-based model for clear reasons, the idea of a Laker colorway may irk some Jordan purists, yet the appeal of this model may go beyond the typical Air Jordan enthusiast.
