Nike is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Space Jam, the greatest sports movie the world has ever seen, in the best possible way — with a brand new Air Jordan 11 'Space Jam' release.

Nike Kicks reports, citing sources, that the Air Jordan 11 'Space Jam' will return late in 2016 in the iconic sneaker's first release since 2009.
