This year, Nike’s annual AJ XI holiday drop consisted of none other than its iconic Cool Grey Jordan 11, one of the last sneakers the GOAT Michael Jordan actually wore on an NBA court.

For the first time since 2010, the Cool Grey Air Jordan 11 is back, featuring its iconic patent leather look with white hues and that super icy blue outsole.

Nike’s Cool Grey AJ XIs retailed for $225 when they dropped on December 11, but naturally, pairs sold out immediately.

Thankfully resale prices for the sneaker aren’t insane (yet). Right now, pairs are selling for between $225 and $450 on apps like GOAT — depending on what size you’re looking for, of course.

Like most of Nike’s retro Jordans, the Cool Grey 11s will shoot up in price over time in the secondary market, so I wouldn’t wait too long to get your pair — especially when it’s, without a doubt, one of the best sneakers of 2021.
