Is This Air Jordan 11 Low A Tribute To Allen Iverson?
We’re days away from the first Air Jordan 11 Low of the summer, and with a Grey Mist and Midnight Navy color scheme, the look is a little suspicious. Jordan Brand has always been coy when celebrating Mike’s coming of age moment when he hit the go-ahead jumper against Georgetown in the 1982 NCAA National Championship Game – the brand even sponsors the Hoyas today. But could this Air Jordan 11 Low “Georgetown” be referencing another future first ballot Hall of Famer in Allen Iverson? It wouldn’t be the first time that Nike slyly referenced a player that was never officially signed to them as late last year they got a cease and desist from A.I. for their Nike Zoom Flight ’96 “Allen Iverson” pair. Iverson was one of the most highly touted players in NCAA history and one of his favorite shoes to wear during his collegiate stint was the Air Jordan 11 “Concord”. And while it’s a bit of a stretch to proclaim this pair the Iverson Lows, the memories of The Answer pre-Reebok will always be best preserved through photos of him donning Tinker’s patent leather classic. The Georgetown Jordan 11 Low is available this Saturday, April 11th for $170. You can always reserve your size by looking for this pair early on eBay.
