Brad Hall, like so many sneakerheads eagerly waiting for December, is excited about the holiday release of the Air Jordan 11 “72-10.”

In the YouTube personality’s latest video he discusses the upcoming shoe, although he wasn’t able to get his hands on a pair. Hall makes do anyway, using an impressive painting from his personal collection to stand in for the talked-about retro.

His lack of the sneakers means that the usual on-feet looks, which have been a powerful tool for sneakerheads hoping to figure out how their shoes will look when worn, are missing. But, Hall makes up for it with a painted depiction of what the shoes should look like on-feet.

Hope with us that Hall is able to acquire an actual pair of these “72-10” Air Jordan 11s so he can let the world know if they live up to the hype.
