Jordan Brand tends to save its Air Jordan 11 Low releases for Spring and Summer given that the model is more appropriate to rock during the warmer seasons. In the coming months, we’re going to witness the imprint bust out a handful of new colorways, one being the Air Jordan 11 Low “72-10” that has just surfaced by way of early imagery.
The shoes are a nod to the Chicago Bulls‘ 1995-1996 NBA season when Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman and company achieved a 72 wins and 10 losses in the regular season — the second greatest record in the league’s history to-date. It also harks back to 2015 when the original Air Jordan 11 model released with this same exact theme. Much like the rendition from seven years ago, the uppers arrive engineered with a solid black tumbled leather material that makes up the side walls and the tongues. “Gym Red” accents appear on the Jumpman insignias atop the heels and banners on the middle of the throat, while the “23” hits on the rear blend in with its stealthy backdrop. Mudguards discards their customary patent leather material and instead brings in a premium leather that is coated with a slightly shimmery gloss.
Elsewhere in sneakers, images of the Air Jordan 5 “NFL Helmet” PE have appeared.
