Air Jordan XI Low – White – Black – True Red | Beauty Shots

May 29th, 2013 by / 28

The Air Jordan XI Low – the patent leather version that is – is one of the quirkier sub-stories in the long and storied history of the Air Jordan franchise. During the Air Jordan XI’s original retail arrival, the low-top version was nowhere to be seen, as Nike opted for the significantly modified “IE” version instead (no patent leather with triangular vents on the upper). The more traditional form of the Air Jordan Low definitely existed back then in PE format, however, showing up on the feet of Michael Jordan during summer-time offseason appearances and strangely enough, in the pages of vintage sneaker catalogs from Japan, among other sightings. But it wasn’t until a few years after the original Air Jordan XI campaign, that the patent toe’d low version would finally make its way to retail.

 

The whole Air Jordan Retro process gave the XI Low a brand new life. Of course, that life has yet to really transfer any of the OG Air Jordan XI colorways over just yet. The 2001 releases rolled out a slew of new colorways (Snakeskin, Carolina Blue, etc.), and last year’s re-introduction focused on a clean tonal white with a red outsole, coming the closest to any sort of Chicago Bulls palette. For 2013, Jordan Brand takes a step closer to the original Air Jordan XI colorways with the White/Black-True Red – shown here in all its glory. Continue reading for a full set of beauty shots of this crispy new Air Jordan XI Low offering, and be sure to stay tuned to Sneaker News for detailed looks at all the hottest upcoming 2013 Jordan Brand releases.

The Air Jordan XI Low in White/Black-True Red releases on June 8th with a retail price of $140.

i'm startin to really feel these. and for a retail price of $140, i might have to cop just out of curiosity. worst case scenario, i resell for $30 profit and call it a day. thank god for well paying jobs.

Keep hating, make it easier for me to get these. No hype for me, just really liking them. But because of hype, and that they have the Jordan retro branding on them, it will still be hard to get them and they'll sell out. Hope I can get a pair.

Even if these were hot, at this point anything Jordan ( not team jordan) will sell out... They can drop the same shoe, eighty different colors and sell out.. Nike and Jordan are cash cows... It's pointless to hate or disagree with whatever they put out because it will sell.. Especially retro (anything).... Smh at the hype but totally agreeing on da business side.. Cash on Jordan, cash on....

@Bigga Everyone says they sell the same shoes. i mean not everyone has had the chance to cop those revolutionary sneakers. they are just that dope and it wont change, what dont you get ? lol 1-14 is their best designs, do you see any of their other shit selling out? nah dont think so.

I hear you Fly... I'm just an older sneaker dude who was around for the originals so I don't feel the same excitement for the different color retros... To me, it's like having different colored Yankee hats but the classic is always blue and white... Besides, the quality is a lot cheaper anyways but hey, if it sells, who the hell am I.....

@Bigga lol yeah i understand and shit im 16, im over jordans about 75%. My friend asked me if i was getting these today i was like nah im chilling on the jays for a minute. My last cop was the grapes, i had to have those. This other dude at school asked me the same question, he didnt even know when they were coming out yet he's "copping"(hypebeast).  Im just done with all the BS. I need some kicks thats real comfortable but i will be in those laney 5s for sure if they drop and ill probably get what ever sneaker drops on my birthday 11/23... im a lucky dude right? lol got the bred 4s last year 15 minutes before 8:00 on finishline.. idk how
