The Air Jordan XI is undoubtedly one of the most popular Air Jordan sneakers of all time. When it was first introduced in 1995, consumers were left with their mouths wide open, oohs and aahs leaving their tongues. The Air Jordan XI has caused ridiculous hype and mayhem, as people lined up days before the release of the DMP Air Jordan XI and caused a wreck during Air Jordan XI Space Jam Release.
We’ve already seen the XI innards from the dissected Cool Grey Air Jordan XI Retro, but take a look at this exhumed OG Air Jordan XI in the Black/Red colourway, taken apart layer by layer. Notice the “carbon footprint” on the bottom of the boot, the interesting codes embedded into the outsole, and the crumbling air-unit that’s been scooped out of the midsole. While this autopsy is painful to watch, it sure is interesting to see an original pair go through this process. via nikemania.
