The Air Jordan 11 Gratitude Completes the Revival of An '06 Pack - The Drop Date

The Air Jordan 11 Gratitude Completes the Revival of An ’06 Pack


Making up the remaining half of the ’06 Defining Moments Pack revival, the Air Jordan 11 Gratitude is due to drop this December. What better Christmas present for Jumpman fans than the release of the revival of an OG Jordan silhouette?! We can practically feel the gratitude already.

Let’s Take It Back To ’06

Amidst the excitement, let’s take it alllll the way back to give some context on the weight this release holds. In January 2006, Nike released the Defining Moments Pack (aka ‘DMP’) in honour of the two sneakers that Michael Jordan donned at the beginning of each of his three-peats. These sneakers happened to be the Air Jordan 6 and AJ11. Drawing inspiration from the Larry O’Brien trophy, the capsule utilised ‘Metallic Gold’ detailing within both exteriors, emphasising the exclusive value. Three years ago, the special AJ6 was revived from the depths of the Jumpman vault – without its DMP counterpart.

A Closer Look at the Air Jordan 11 Gratitude…

After mass speculation as to when we’d see the AJ11 iteration return, if ever, sneaker leakers finally did their thing. In January of this year, imagery was released of what would be the 2023 Air Jordan 11 Gratitude, with a replica appearance of the OG. Or so we thought. Although the model is pretty much identical to the original, the ‘Gratitude’ remodelling features a few alterations. Premium leather takes the place of the ballistic mesh throughout the upper, whilst a glossy finish is swapped out for a patent flair. Grounding the iteration is a clean white midsole, situated atop a dynamic creamy outer.

In alignment with the name, the model features text woven into the inner tongue. Depicting the words, Quality Basketball Product Created In Gratitude By The Greatest Player Ever – we’re grateful to the Jumpman enterprise for completing the revival of the Defining Moments Pack!
