If having to choose a basketball shoe that captures the best memories of the Air Jordan series, it will be the Air Jordan 11 design – Michael Jordan’s favorite. Not only having the stable performance on the wooden floor for the basketball players, this shoe can be also used as fashion item.
With the glossy leather often found on dress shoes, Air Jordan 11 stands out from the rest. It is so extremely elegant that many people have chosen to match with their gentleman outfits, and some even wear it to weddings.
This year 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the first launch of the Air Jordan 11. As usual the special Air Jordan 11 editions will be released on the last days of the year. Therefore, to make Air Jordan 11’s 25th birthday memorable, the brand has brought its Nike Adapt – self-lacing technology to this beloved line of shoes.
The original rope of the laces was replaced with Adapt cables, which increases the durability of tightening-loosening. This cable also does not run through all the eyelets like the original version, it neglects the 3rd and 5th pairs.
This also slightly changes the appearance of the eyelet. First, there is an additional translucent plastic on the outside, obscuring the Jumpman logo on the heel. The outsole is a transparent icy with an orange-red traction array. Meanwhile the upper has a color scheme similar to Tinker Hatfield’s first sketch of the design.
The automatic lacing function will be activated when the foot inserts the shoe. Moreover, the wearer can tighten and loosen the cable with the two + – buttons on the middle sole. Especially, this function can be adjusted via the Nike mobile app, not as stingy as some phone company. Besides, Jordan Brand also includes a charger and wireless pad for this model.
The Air Jordan 11 Adapt version will be released on December 30, 2020 on the Nike SNKRS app without a price announcement. Manarax predicts that this shoe will fall in the $ 300 – $ 350 price range, considering the common retail price of the Air Jordan 11 plus the Nike Adapt .
