Closer Look: The Air Jordan 11 ‘Cool Grey’ Releases Again in 2021Release: 11 December 2021
Michael Jordan’s game-changing Air Jordan 11 is arguably the greatest basketball sneaker of the 90s, and the fan-favourite ‘Cool Grey’ colourway is returning for 2021! We were recently reminded of the silhouette’s prowess after a Space Jam sample sold for an eye-watering $176,400, but we expect the returning colourway to go for a little less than that – thankfully.
The Air Jordan 11 ‘Cool Grey’ for 2021 will arrive is GS sizing as well as men’s, celebrating the colourway’s 20th anniversary. The ice-cold scheme first appeared back in 2001 before getting a retro in 2010, so this version has been quite a few years in the making. Manufactured with a higher-cut patent leather, the ‘Medium Grey’, white, and ‘Cool Grey’ colour palette is again emblazoned by the Jordan Brand’s signature icy translucent outsole.
Shining in glossy patent-leather, the Air Jordan 11 was first seen on Jordan’s feet during the fabled 1995 Playoffs, a little sooner than the folks at Nike had intended. As revealed by Tinker Hatfield, Jordan was so in love with the AJ11 that he went against the designer’s wishes, lacing up the legendary sneaker despite instructions from the brand to keep ’em on ice.
Look for the Air Jordan 11 ‘Cool Grey’ to release on December 11. The retail price is locked at $225.
