Ahead of this weekend’s release, we’re taking a closer look at the much-anticipated 2016 Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam.” This of course isn’t the first time that the coveted colorway has dropped, however.

In comparison to the 2009 version, the new, remastered pair boasts a heightened build that is more closely similar to the ’95 OG iteration. The midsole, patent leather mudguard and model are all cut marginally taller than the aforementioned 2009 release.

Another OG aspect of the 2016 delivery is the implementation of concord branding, as well as the #45 heel detail, while finally, the sole of this year’s “Space Jam” 11s showcases a significantly brighter blue tint than 2009’s.

For a better look at the comparison between this year’s Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” and the 2009 drop, click through the gallery above.

And don’t forget, the 2016 “Space Jam” 11s arrive on December 10.
