Here’s a new colorway of the Air Jordan 2011 that upon hitting retail during the model’s first run, immediately joins some of the most beloved grails this game has to offer. We’re talking about a list including the black/royal Air Jordan 1, ‘September Blue’ AJVI, ‘Military’ AJ4 (do we even need to mention the dope Wizards era releases?!) — this is a formidable collection to say the least. Luckily, the AJ2011 can go ‘Fast’ with the Zoom Air insole or you can choose to swap it out and go ‘Explosive’ with a Max Air-embedded cushion. With unrivaled performance and a colorway that’s pretty dang easy on the eyes, is it safe to say the Air Jordan 2011 in Varsity Royal is amongst peers in the list of legends above? Early sales aside, a big part of the shoe’s story hinges on Dwyane Wade’s performance in this Sunday’s NBA All Star Game when he’ll be wearing this as a player exclusive. Be sure to check back with Sneaker News for in depth coverage of NBA Feet from the ASG and for now, click through to get a better look and look for the Varsity Royal Air Jordan 2011 to hit retailers like Millennium Shoes on Thursday, February 17th — a fitting tribute to Michael’s birthday.
