First worn by Jordan in the 1996 NBA Playoffs, the sneaker carries a similar build to the legendary AJ 11, but with a few minor changes. The mudguard on the low — which is merely low in name — is equipped with a leather/mesh mix, as opposed to the patent all-leather of the original. The sneaker comes with suede accents to complement the black full-grain leather upper, along with a velvet red sockliner and Jordan logo with an icy translucent sole to match the OG.
After a number of retro stylings throughout the last 15 years, the “Bred” colorway marks the first retro since its debut in ‘96 — a glorious return to mark the 25th anniversary of the shoe. The Air Jordan 11 Low IE “Bred” has an MSRP of $170 USD and will be available via Nike SNKRS on September 17.
