Of all the Jordan shoes, the Air Jordan 11 is the most easily recognizable and probably the most popular. The Original version featuring patent leather is of course the one most people think of but the low top version was nothing to forget. The Air Jordan 11 Low was one of the few low-cut Jordan signature shoes that Michael actually wore in a game. As a matter of fact, it might be the only low-cut version that he played in while with the Chicago Bulls.
The Jordan Retro 11 Low may not have the same shiny finish as its higher cut sibling but with a combination of Elephant Print and mesh mixed together across the upper, it still had the iconic elements to make it a classic. The translucent outsole was of course, shared with the higher cut Jordan 11, while the lacing system and tongue were noticeably different and even resembled some of the future Jordans like the 12 and 13. This Black/Varsity Red and White combination takes its inspiration from those timeless Bulls colorways that will forever be asssociated with the history of Air Jordans. Check out a picture of MJ playing in the Lows below as well.
