The Air Jordan 11 “Jubilee,” also known as the Air Jordan 11 “25th Anniversary” celebrates this classic silhouette’s quarter-century birthday by releasing a new colorway of the Tinker Hatfield-designed shoe. The “Jubilee” takes hits from the AJ11 “Concord” as well as the “Space Jam” colorways but this finds itself rendered in a special monochrome black finish, constructed from a traditional blend of ballistic mesh and patent leather. Referencing back to that original sketch of the sneaker by Hatfield, the word “Jordan” sits as a meta branding of sorts, along the side of the eyelets, in metallic silver. Wondering where this shoe sits in the lineage of so many iconic Jordan 11s could be a headache so we simplified for you. Here’s a look at some of the best Air Jordan 11s that GOAT is carrying right now along with this latest release of the Air Jordan 11 “Jubilee,” available now on their site.

The Air Jordan 11 “Jubilee” honors the 25-year anniversary of Michael Jordan’s eleventh signature shoe by bringing to life an original design concept sketched by Tinker Hatfield in the ‘90s. The “Jubilee” borrows from the “Concord” and “Space Jam” colorways in that it features a predominately black and white appearance. The word “Jordan” is spelled out in Metallic Silver text along the side of the eyelets in reference to the original sketch of the shoe by Hatfield. A silver Jumpman emblem appears in the same premium finish on the collar, supported by a translucent rubber outsole. Finally, the black patent leather above the white midsole is a call back to the styling of the “Concord,” “Space Jam,” and “Bred.”
