So here it is, the changes from the 2000 Jordan Retro XI Sample, to the 2009 second retro release:

1. The 45 on the heel became a 23
2. The Jumpman on the heel was reversed
3. The Jumpman on the outsole went from white to blue

If you got all 3, solid, and if you added the 4th about the tongue label changing we’ll take your word for it. The sample did not have a tongue label. And if you like this kind of trivia, check back soon for a new feature about production names that got changed…
