Luka Dončić Debuts Air Jordan 11 Low IE “Matador” P.E. As NBA Playoffs Start

Having helped his Dallas Mavericks squad avoid the NBA Play-In tournament by clinching home court advantage in the 2021-22 Playoffs, Luka Dončić suffered a left calf sprain against the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday, April 10th. The Slovenian guard also unveiled a never-before-seen Air Jordan 11 Low IE Player-Exclusive (P.E.), reminding everyone that he’s one of Jordan Brand future faces.

Although word of the Jordan Luka 1, the 23-year-old’s first official signature sneaker, releasing by the end of 2022 suggests Dončić is of high-priority for NIKE, Inc., Dončić having his own logo replace the Jumpman on a model Michael Jordan wore back in the 1990s is arguably of more significance. The Mavericks guard didn’t waste the opportunity either, reimagining Tinker Hatfield’s iconic design in a rich red and gold color combination: most of the Air Jordan 11-variant’s upper is clad in the former tone, as well as satin-like material. Ornate detailing covers the panel wedged between the reinforcement at the toe and ribbed construction underneath the tongue, indulging in stark metallic gold flair. Sole units resemble the Air Jordan‘s fan-favorite “Bred” colorway, while left shoes don Luka Dončić’s “LD” logo covered in the same finish that takes over the aforementioned regal detailing.

While the P.E. is likely never to hit Nike SNKRS, it wouldn’t be unlike Jordan Brand to release some variant of Dončić’s Jordan 11 Low IE at some point. In any case, enjoy images of the shoes ahead, courtesy of the Dallas Mavs’ Instagram account.
