After Nike released the Air Jordan XX9 'Legend Blue' on Black Friday, the sneaker giant plans to end the year on a high note and drop one of the most coveted sneakers in the brand's lineage -- the Air Jordan 11 'Legend Blue.'

Here's a little back story on these kicks. The Air Jordan 'Legend Blue' was originally called the 'Columbia' and first appeared on Michael Jordan's feet during the 1996 NBA All-Star Game in San Antonio, TX. It was retroed in January 2001 and since then has been the most sought-after sneaker in the AJ collection.

Outside of changing the name from 'Columbia' to 'Legend Blue,' the shoe is exactly the same as the original version. It features an all-white patent leather upper, mesh tongue, rope laces and the classic icey-blue bottom. Of course, the carolina blue Jumpman is located at the ankle part of the shoe.

The Air Jordan 11 'Legend Blue' will hit and affiliated retail stores on Dec. 20 for a hefty price of $200. So start saving your coins now if you haven't already.
