The Air Jordan 11 “Columbia,” an iconic sneaker in Michael Jordan’s signature line, is set to make a grand return in December 2024. Originally released in 1996 and worn by Jordan himself during the ’96 NBA All-Star Game, this sneaker has become a fan favorite for its clean and fresh design, reminiscent of Jordan’s alma mater, the University of North Carolina.

The 2024 retro release of the Air Jordan 11 “Columbia” is expected to stay true to Tinker Hatfield’s original design, featuring a mostly white color scheme with “Columbia Blue” accents. This release follows a trend of revisiting original colorways, as seen with the Air Jordan 11 “Legend Blue” in 2014. However, the upcoming “Columbia” release aims to more faithfully replicate the original 1996 version, potentially featuring semi-translucent outsoles that resemble the debut pair.


The Air Jordan 11 “Columbia” is scheduled for release on December 14th, 2024. It will be available in full-family sizing, with men’s sizing priced at $230 USD, Grade School at $180, Pre-School at $100, and Toddler at $85. The sneakers are expected to be available at select Jordan Brand retailers, both in-store and online, including Nike SNKRS.
