Ruffled a few times since its last release in 2010, the Air Jordan 11 “Cool Gray” returns on December 11. Ahead of their third retro, the pair emerged via official images.
First seen in 2001, the monochrome version of one of the most popular Jordans offers a remastered version of the model’s non-original colourway. A neutral gray nubuck makes up the bulk of the upper, with shiny patent leather entering the mix through the iconic curved fender. Close inspection of the pair reveals a difference in height and shape from the 2010 11 “Cool Grays,” although the 2021 iteration is a closer replica of the 26-year-old Tinker Hatfield design. The laces and branding on the tongue, side heel and spine deviate from the grayscale arrangement in favor of a striking “white” contrast. Still, the semi-translucent ice-blue outsole arguably steals the show, tackling the yellowing that plagued the sneakers on their last outing.
Enjoy official images of the Jordan 11 in adult and kid sizes below, and look forward to a Nike SNKRS launch on Saturday, December 11.
Elsewhere under the umbrella of NIKE, Inc., the Nike Air Max 1 celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2022.
