Jordan Brand revisits a memorable Air Jordan 11 Retro release of the past with this upcoming Low-top set for a May release. In December of 2015, the Jumpman honored the unforgettable 72-10 season of the ’95-’96 Chicago Bulls by crafting a premium take on the silhouette that MJ wore throughout that legendary campaign. Swapping the traditional patent leather mudguard for a sparkly glossy finish sparked a controversial response, but over time Jordan fanatics grew to appreciate the change.
Joining that new mudguard finish was a premium leather with a tumbled finish as well as nubuck surfaces on the lace eyelets. The “23” and Jumpman at the heel are also finished with plastic overlays, while a opaque outsole completes the look.
