Air Jordan 11 Low “Black and Varsity Royal”

May 18, 2024, 10:00 AM EDT

A patent leather paradise—the AJ11 is an icon among icons. Originally designed by Tinker Hatfield, this low-cut edition honors the legendary design with signature details and classic colors. Subtle bursts of Varsity Royal complement the glossy Black overlays and breezy textiles. MJ wore the famed shoe throughout his legendary '95-'96 championship season, and this special colorway earned its own stardom on the big screen (among some notable cartoony counterparts). Although, this edition of the fan fave didn't release until 2000 as a retro, the lore was out there and the foundation was set. Featuring an icy translucent outsole (with a carbon fiber-like underlay) and "Jumpman Jam" branding on the tongue, the AJ11 is ready to take flight once again. Soaring from half-court for a game-winning dunk? Wouldn't be the first time.
