Inspired by original sketches of the Air Jordan XI, the 25th anniversary interpretation of the model incorporates a metallic silver Jumpman logo and “JORDAN” on the eyelets. The heel has an embroidered silver “23” with a printed “25” on the insoles to celebrate 25 years of greatness. On the tongue is a special stitched “JUMPMAN” and “JORDAN” tag.
The Jumpman himself debuted the Air Jordan XI in 1995 after returning from his first retirement; the Air Jordan XI Jubilee celebrates the birth of a cultural icon and one of the most beloved sneakers in basketball history. The moment is punctuated by silver accents and detailing (the metal is the symbol of a Jubilee anniversary), which shine across an all-black mesh and genuine patent leather upper.
The Air Jordan XI Jubilee releases in the US December 12.
