The Air Jordan 11 is a model that’s so far been impervious to any real material tweaks in its retro lifetime. Every pair that’s come out, save for those couple of “Snakeskin” low versions, has had the all important patent leather shine to it. Offering up an alternate take on that classic is this Air Jordan XI “Bred” sample that instead sports a synthetic nubuck look across the upper to go with the original colorway in place. Continue reading for another peek at this strange sample and check back in on Sneaker News should more images of them arrive.
@sneakernews those aew beautiful.
@sneakernews sweet asab
@A1SinceDay1_X no bullshit
@sneakernews want them
I hope this is a joke lol Lint/dust bred 11s cause that's what they will look like not long after wearing them lol
These are clean. I wouldn't mind if they came out like this. It looks like the whole shoe is nubuck too. I feel if they kept the upper mesh it would look bad
these are pretty fresh objectively speaking... but that doesn't mean that it's not blasphemy and that it should ever happen lol
Patent leather and mesh are so iconic on the 11's these just don't look right right now. But it's nice that they're stepping out of the box and trying out new materials on classics.
@MoyMoy0712 ahhh sick I'll get gamma's you get them loool
@Lowtown21 interesting. The patent leather is what keeps me from wearing these so I’d consider this version.
@MoyMoy0712 have you heard Drakes send for Kendrick?!?!!

@pjdempsey bingo! It's why I don't wear em too and have sold most of my pairs.
