The holiday season is a major one for the Jordan Brand team, especially the month of December as this is traditionally when it conducts a special Air Jordan 11 launch. In 2021, Michael Jordan‘s sportswear brand is slated to bring new life to one of the silhouette’s most iconic colorways — the Air Jordan 11 “Cool Grey”. This marks the makeup’s first time back on the market since it retroed in 2010.
Nubuck base layers are decorated with its titular tone while the signature patent leather mudguards and toe boxes are splashed with a darker “Medium Grey” shade. To offset these main components, angelic finishes are applied to the rope shoe strings as well as the Jumpman insignia that is positioned on the collars of the lateral panels. Synthetic heel sections are backdropped in more “Medium Grey” and come embellished with a “23” hit in white, and another form of branding can be located on the throat via its customary Jordan banner. Downstairs, the midsoles are packed with Zoom Air cushioning and surrounded by a white shell while the iced out treading and carbon fiber plates strings together its design.
As of now, the Air Jordan 11 “Cool Grey” is slated to drop on December 11 via SNKRS and select retailers for $225 USD. If waiting till Christmastime isn’t your thing, you can also grab a pair on GOAT now.
