What that actually means is still up for debate. Biggest in volume? Sure. Highest-selling sneaker ever? Surely. Largest gross revenue? Probably. And is the statement actually true? Perhaps.
Details are still cloudy at this point, and we won't know for sure until the figures roll out early next year.
But one thing's for sure, the love for the Concord, and Jordan Brand's market clout for that matter, is as strong as ever.
