Without a doubt, the Air Jordan 11 is one of the most iconic basketball sneakers ever created. The shoe’s combination of patent leather, mesh and a translucent outsole make for a trademark look that is hard to deny. In fact, MJ’s 11th signature is so reviered, even low-top editions of the AJ 11 inspire great fanfare. Over the last two decades, we have seen over 20 Air Jordan 11 Lows released in two variations, including the IE version, which dropped the patent leather and mesh combo for elephant print and a leather upper. This past weekend, we saw two new additions to the Air Jordan 11 Low list, and with a few more set to release in the near future, we decided to spotlight the ankle-bearing signature style. Take a look through our Air Jordan 11 Low catalog, and then let us know your favorites in the comment section.
