Air Jordan 11 History
The Air Jordan 11 is one of the most innovative and unique sneaker designs of all time. The story behind theam is even better. Before the start of the 1993-1994 NBA season, Michael Jordan decided to retire, which was a huge shock for the fans of basketball. The timing was also odd, he just won his third straight NBA championship. He was considered by many to be the greatest player of all time when he stepped away from the league. In his retirement he wanted to pursue a career as a baseball player until he decided to return the NBA in 1995. During Michael Jordan’s first full season back in the league, 1995-1996, MJ introduced the Air Jordan 11’s to the world.
Designer Tinker Hatfield took inspiration from high fashion, rather than sportswear, for the iconic Air Jordan 11. That design strategy worked so well which allowed the 11’s to live beyond the basketball court, and step into the formal wear matching them with tuxedos and formalwear. The shoes were also a great part of Michael Jordan’s and Chicago Bulls’ wins in the historic 72-10 season, as well as the NBA Championship in 1996.
Air Jordan 11 Design
The sneakers are, as always, beautifully designed and made of quality and durable materials that will allow you to wear them comfortably and for a long time. First of all, we have to take into account that these are sports shoes that are specially designed to be used on the basketball court, even though they might find their usage on every type of court. The sole consists of several layers, is extremely soft and cushions the landing as much as possible. It is slip-resistant and provides extreme adhesion to parquet and slippery surfaces. The neck of the sneaker and the tongue are also specially adapted to better fix the foot and ankle and thus prevent sports injuries.
