One of the best low-top Air Jordan models is easily the Air Jordan XI Low (not the IE version). Here we have a look at a low-top version of the Air Jordan XI ‘Concord’, worn by Michael Jordan yesterday. Was this the first time he wore low-top Concords? The answer is no: when the Air Jordan XI was first created, a few low-top samples were made (Michael liked playing in low-tops) – a ‘Bred’ colorway and a ‘Concord’ colorway (he wore them during the ’96 Championship celebration parade). The big difference between that ’96 sample and this 2011 sample is that the latter features a full white synthetic leather upper instead of the ballistic nylon used in other Air Jordan XI releases. Thanks to Carlos Prieto of Sole Fly, we’ve got some nice angles of this sample, as well as a shot of MJ wearin’ ’em after the jump, so take a look and let us know what you think.
