Air Jordan 11 made its grand debut to the world, 25 years ago, presenting itself on the feet of Michael Jordan during his comeback run late in the 1995 NBA season. Michael Jordan chose to wear the shoe prematurely, against the behest of designer Tinker Hatfield, sending sneaker fans into a frenzy and laying the groundwork for the most elegant and sought after basketball shoe in history.
For the first time ever, Nike Brand has infused Nike Adapt technology to the shoe, as a part of the 25th Anniversary celebration of the Air Jordan 11. The Air Jordan 11 Adapt can be tightened and loosened through App functionality or with analog buttons placed at the midfoot of the shoe, like other Adaptladen footwear such as the Adapt BB 2.0 and Adapt Auto Max.
The Adapt Jordan 11 comes with the charging pad and plug. The overall silhouette of the Air Jordan 11 remains largely unchanged, but there are minor modifications that reflect the futurist aesthetic. The upper features a translucent layer that covers the lace eyelet strips an the statement Jumpman logo on the heel. The thin cords replace the classic rope, as a part of the lock-down mechanism of Adapt technology. A translucent icy sole and a colorway that reflect Tinker’s early sketches of the famed sneaker, finish off the look of the sneaker.
The Air Jordan 11 Adapt will officially release on December 30th on Nike SNKRS.
