UPDATE: Don’t forget Fam, dropping this April 11 at Nike.com and select Nike accounts – and while you’re at it, check out the official flicks for your pleasure.
The Air Jordan 11 is one of the few Js that looks half decent in a cut-down low top form, so Jordan Brand isn’t about to stop bringing out new renditions of it. This latest effort is inspired by some important MJ mythology; when he scored a game winning bucket from downtown against the Georgetown Hoyas in his college days way back when three-pointers didn’t even exist yet. It may seem strange to dress the man’s signature sneaker up in the colours of an opponent, but this is more a declaration of domination and desecration, a shoe statement from His Airness that, ‘I owned you, Hoyas!’ Patent navy leather rides the rand, with off-white Cordura mesh cloaking the upper. It’s a simple piece to immortalise an important B-Ball moment, do you dig it? April 11 is the drop date at Jordan retailers, including Finish Line.
