UPDATE: The release date for the Air Jordan 11 GG Heiress 'Red Velvet' is creeping ever closer and now official images from Nike HQ have emerged. The regal combination of rich red velvet, deep burgundy nubuck and lustrous metallic gold accents look even better in this new set of flicks.
For some Jordan heads, Christmas is coming early this year. These exquisite kicks drop on December 17 through Nike.com and Swoosh stockists worldwide – one week after the release of the almighty 'Space Jams'.
Having Michael Jordan for a father entitles you to a few footwear perks. For son Marcus Jordan that means a stack of exclusive colabs for his newly opened Trophy Room retail venture, but daughter Jasmine Jordan has also been doing pretty darn well for herself in 2016, unleashing a steady stream of Air Jordan creations under the 'Heiress' moniker. The Air Jordan 11 is the latest sneaker to receive the royal treatment, adopting a 'Red Velvet' makeover like the Air Jordan 1 Heiress before it. The plush crimson fabric stands in for the AJ11's signature patent leather mudguard overlay, with the laces, outsole and nubuck upper also embracing the cherry hue. Metallic gold branding on the tongue, heel and Jumpman completes the regal appearance. With a gold '23' on the heel, this Cavs colourway is bound to be coveted by Jordan and LeBron fans alike.
The Air Jordan 11 GG Heiress 'Red Velvet' is expected to hit Nike.com and select Jordan Brand stockists on December 17
