Jordan Brand‘s Air Jordan 11 Low IE has emerged in a timeless “Black Cement” colorway. A makeup inspired directly by the legendary Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement” — which last released in 2018 on Michael Jordan‘s 55th birthday — these low-cut, stripped back Air Jordan 11s serve up a double scoop of Jumpman history.
First released in 1996 and worn by Jordan during that year’s NBA Playoffs, the 11 Low IE is low in name but mid-cut in build. Its upper is constructed of a textured black leather, while the mudguard discards the signature patent found on the regular Air Jordan 11 in favor of a leather and mesh mix. Here, this mudguard is dressed in signature elephant print that surrounds cut-out mesh panels and reaches around the entirety of the upper.
Tongues combine a grey base with a red Jumpman to provide signature “Black Cement” flair, and collars are done up in grey as well. On the lower half a white midsole with a carbon fiber midfoot plate houses Zoom Air cushioning. Milky white outsoles round off the look.
The Air Jordan 11 Low IE “Black Cement” will release on Nike SNKRS come July 16. The MSRP is set at $170 USD.
