If you take a closer look at the Air Jordan 11, you might think that the silhouette is a rotten apple. The non-traditional aesthetic is probably the look they’re going for with the 11th signature sneaker by Michael Jordan. With the first models, countless fans and sneakerheads got used to the fine leather, and now, the patent leather seems to be a rather new territory.
The surrounding and shiny material encloses the mudguard for the most part and is, in our opinion, definitely one of the most striking silhouettes from the entire Jordan line. Nevertheless, the Air Jordan 11 is one of the most treasured and collectable sneakers in the world. Did you know that the Air Jordan 11 is Michael Jordan’s favourite model?
The high form as well as the sophisticated materials have a high-recognition value and that’s probably why the upper is the perfect choice for the countless colourways, just like with this Air Jordan 11 “Jubilee”, which will be released at Christmas time. So, you loved the previous colourways on the Air Jordan 11? Then check out this latest version.
We look forward to the holiday season every time, not only because of the relaxing days, but also because of the Air Jordan 11 versions that will be released at that time. The latest iteration, the Air Jordan 11 “Jubilee”, celebrates the 25th anniversary of the silhouette. Inspired by the original sketches and the early days of the Air Jordan 11, the 25th anniversary interpretation of the model features a high-quality “Metallic Silver” Jumpman logo on the heels and contrasting “JORDAN” prints on the eyelets.
The lightweight materials over the mudguard of the Air Jordan 11 “Jubilee” are given a stealthy look by the black lacquer finish, while the patent leather mudguard is given the classic black and shiny finish and ultimately celebrates the birth of a cultural icon.
Other silver accents like the #23 on the back, the branding on the insoles, and the characteristic Jumpman on the throat underline the basketball history. Further down, we see a clean midsole and the light carbon fibre element as well as a milky outsole, which complete the overall design.
The Air Jordan 11 “Jubilee” is not only the ultimate lifestyle sneaker, but also a technical wonder. A basketball sneaker should have a high shape and the 11th signature sneaker has exactly that. The high cut gives a better hold for the sneaker, while the padded collar provides additional stability and increases the wearing comfort.
But what would an Air Jordan be without Nike’s legendary Air cushioning? At the bottom, a full-length and ultra-light Air sole cushions every step for improved comfort, combined with the lightweight carbon fibre element for more stability. Finally, the molded mudguard that envelops the entire foot ensures durability with a sleek look.
Conclusion on the Air Jordan 11 “Jubilee”
The Air Jordan 11 is and continues to be a basketball sneaker, but only a few would probably wear the sneakers on court. Fans and sneakerheads treat the Air Jordan 11 like a lifestyle sneaker and we more often see the Air Jordan 11 “Jubilee” on the streets rather than in sports. We love the updated colourway with the high-quality details and old fashioned elements.
Since the Air Jordan 11 iterations are very much in demand, some fans are probably getting ready for an L. The release of the Air Jordan 11 “Jubilee” will be on December 12th, by the way, and is priced at £190.
