Along with the innovative midsole system, there are plenty more techy details of the Air Jordan 2011. Hugging your foot is a mesh inner bootie construction for a snug and breathable fit, while a dynamic loop lacing system quickly locks you in. Each midsole cushioning unit also came equipped with a composite woven plate in the midfoot for support and torsional rigidity. Down below, the outsole came in grippy clear rubber (most colorways) with multi-directional flex grooves. For the signature aesthetic characteristic of the shoe, the upper was paneled with hand-burnished patina leather with a unique constellation-inspired graphic texture symbolizing Jordan Brand’s rise to the status of a brand with universal recognition.
