The Air Jordan 11 is yet another in a series of iconic sneakers from the Michael Jordan signature line that set the world on fire and turned basketball shoes into a massive, global multibillion dollar industry.
Michael Jordan debuted this shoe in 1995 and it took the world by storm. Even to this day, the Jordan 11 brings out people who generally resist or ignore sneaker releases. The black/red edition of the shoe, commonly referred to as Bred, is probably one of the two or three most iconic Jordan signature shoe and color combinations in the entire 30 year run of designs and combinations.
Nike and Jordan brand are well aware of the cash cow they have on their hands so it seems inevitable that each year another group of original and early iterations of the shoe pop up. In addition, Jordan Brand seems even more emboldened to find new, borderline awful colorways to add to the mix.
Even more than just switching up the colors, Jordan has also introduced a low cut version of the 11 that has hit in a whole grip of colorways. While new colorways of the Air Jordan 1s, 7s, 8s and other models all cram onto shelves this year, they all look pretty awful. One of the few exceptions to this is the Air Jordan 11 Low "Georgetown" which features a low cut at the ankle along with a grey upper and dark blue patent leather with a clear "icy" sole. The shoe is an absolute stunner in person. We grabbed our pair, did you get yours?
