The Air Jordan 2011 is a beautifully elegant design but its signature feature is something you can feel far more than see. With ‘Quick’ and ‘Explosive’ interchangeable midsoles offering Zoom and encapsulated Air cushioning respectively, you have the opportunity to tailor the AJ2011 to your preferences. Jordan Brand offered a few lucky ballers a chance to experience the performance benefits for themselves with a setup near Santa Monica Blvd. featuring tests for each insole. For the ‘Quick’ side of things, a ladder drill was used to demonstrate Zoom Air’s superior lateral responsiveness, while the ‘Explosive’ joints provided a soft landing on the vertical jump test.
