25 years ago, the Air Jordan 11 made its grand debut to the world, revealing itself on the feet of Michael Jordan during his comeback run late in the 1995 NBA season. Against the behest of designer Tinker Hatfield, Michael Jordan chose to wear the shoe prematurely, sending sneaker fans into a frenzy and laying the groundwork for what is arguably the most elegant and sought after basketball shoe in history.

As part of the 25th Anniversary celebration of the Air Jordan 11, Jordan Brand has, for the first time ever, infused Nike Adapt technology to the shoe. Like with other Adapt-laden footwear such as the Adapt BB 2.0 and Adapt Auto Max, the Air Jordan 11 Adapt can be tightened and loosened through App functionality, or with analog buttons placed at the midfoot of the shoe. The Adapt Jordan 11 comes with the charging pad and plug.

The over silhouette of the Air Jordan 11 remains largely unchanged, but with minor modifications that speak the futurist aesthetic. The upper features a translucent layer that covers the lace eyelet strips an the statement Jumpman logo on the heel. Replacing the classic rope laces are the thin cords – part of the lock-down mechanism of Adapt technology. Finishing off the look is a translucent icy sole and a colorway that reflect Tinker’s early sketches of the famed sneaker.

The Air Jordan 11 Adapt will officially release on December 30th on Nike SNKRS. Access it on 23 Live.

Updated December 22nd, 2020: A Nike SNKRS Shock Drop is expected to happen on December 22nd.
