No Air Jordan signature shoe is complete without a tribute to Jordan’s alma mater, North Carolina. While Columbia Blue isn’t exactly Carolina Blue, it’s still close enough of an effort. The all-white upper made the Columbia Air Jordan XI a huge success during both the original and retro release, and paired with a clear “ice” sole gave these a clean, angelic motif. Being an original colourway, the Columbia XI left the shelves in a hurry, and it was also the first Jordan XI retro of the 21st century. Some extra trivia tidbits: The Columbia XI is the last of the XI retros to sports a “Nike Air” on the insole, and the release date did not fall on Saturday, which is known to be the unofficial Jordan Release date.
