Air Jordan 11
The Air Jordan 11 is a basketball shoe designed by Tinker Hatfield for Michael Jordan. It first debuted on the basketball floor in 1995 when MJ first came out of retirement, and served as one of the main options that he wore during the season that would eventually resulted in his fourth championship title. The famous picture of Jordan lying on the floor after winning the NBA Finals that year displays him wearing the popular Bred colorway. When it originally arrived on the market in 1996, many were drawn to its design as it was unlike anything consumers had ever seen before. The combination of ballistic mesh materials wrap-around patent leather mudguards, icy outsoles, and carbon fiber midsole plates provided a sporty-yet-formal concept.
Currently, it is considered to be one of the more highly-coveted models in Jordan's signature footwear lineage, and just so happens to be the six time champion's favorite silhouette.
Some of its most popular versions include mid-profile colorways such as the Concords, Cool Greys, and Space Jams, as well as the Bred 11s whose last retro release back in December of 2019 was deemed Nike's best-selling sneaker in history.
Typically, Jordan Brand will release a special Air Jordan 11 in December as part of the holiday shopping season. However, in recent years, the Air Jordan 11 has been made available all year in the Mid and Low forms. Women's exclusive Air Jordan 11s have also been available in the past.
Following 2021's revival of the “Cool Grey,” many have wondered what's in store for the Air Jordan 11 come Holiday 2022. And this past week, these people have received their answer: the silhouette is to release in a White/Red colorway simply dubbed “Cherry.” Alongside, the AJ11 Low will appear in both “Pure Violet” and “72-10.”
