Jordan Brand debuted the Air Jordan 2011 on Dwyane Wade’s feet during the Miami Heat’s Christmas Day beatdown of the LA Lakers and we got a closer view a couple days later, but this is by far our best look yet. It’s immediately clear in looking at the AJ2011 that we’ve got something like Elephant Print 2K11 on our hands here with the streaky almost zebra-like pattern embossed into the upper, one that serves to accentuate the perforations and insinuate a hidden image. Above this extended ‘mudguard’ you’ll find mesh ankle cutout that means in combination with the mesh tongue and the left one’s perforated branding, this is designed to be the most breathable Air Jordan yet, even surpassing last year’s ‘windowed’ design. Click through for more shots including a close-up look at the carbon fiber-embedded insoles and stick with Sneaker News for the Air Jordan 2011 release date. And for those of you who just can’t wait, a small run of sizes 8.5-10.5 has arrived at Marquee Sole.
