We don't really need to say much, do we? It's the Air Jordan 11, probably the most popular basketball shoe ever produced. Sure, some people - like me - would take a number of shoes over the Air Jordan 11, but nothing brings people out like this shoe.
While the shoe was originally a high top, Nike realized it could make a lot of money if they were to release the shoe in a low top version. So they did. Over and over. But, this is the Air Jordan 11 so it looks great and totally works.
The most recent release of the Air Jordan 11 is the hallowed "Bred" (black/red) variation. For the first time, Nike released it as a low top shoe featuring red lining. Part of the marketing and "backstory" of the shoe is that this is supposedly a Michael Jordan PE, or player exclusive, that was made for His Airness back in 1996.
If the origin is real or manufactured, the shoe is a winner.
