Air Jordan 2011

BREAKING NEWS: Air Jordan 2011, first look.

The Air Jordan 2011 is finally unveiled.

Features a crafted and perforated leather upper along with mesh insets at the ankles and a mesh tongue. Underfoot an ice blue translucent rubber outsole with segmented flex points handle traction. The biggest tech story to the shoe is what appears to be a fully interchangeable insole with carbon fiber torsion midfoot support cradling either your choice of a full length Air unit or heel and forefoot Zoom Air. More info to come as the story develops…

removable/interchangeable sock liners to make for an option of either full length air or zoom air at the heel and forefoot?

it reminds me of the XI and XII…or maybe the XIX in the way that mudguard is placed and how it swoops around the shoe.

i’m sure that this is a prototype, or maybe even meant to be a team shoe. i don’t see a story anywhere on it and i can’t imagine they’d go for the ‘leaving a fingerprint on the game, hence the fingerprint on the shoe as a texture’ approach, because that would make two consecutive jordan shoes where the meaning has been literal (being able to see through the game/opponent = actual plastic porthole right through the shoe). where are the allusions and where are the moments where it feels like you see something familiar in the shoe, but just can’t place it, like it’s on the tip of your tongue? where’s the mystique?

Personally, since the XXI, I have been waiting on them to do this. I am not so worried about the looks as the performance. Everything right now, from these pictures, looks beasty. I love the interchangeable insole – so much better than the pods they passed off, might actually have a function and improve performance. The sole – icy, so traction should be on point, and we all know how clear soles look and sell. Nice ankle cut, looks like inner bootie to the Achilles, ventilation looks nice. May be my first grab in 4 years, until I see the price.

What a hugeee disappointment….garbage IMO. If these were not Jordans they would not sell, but as usual ppl will buy anything with a Jordan logo…a bunch of @ss-kissers! GTFOH

well there was nowhere to go but up after the 2010, so they do have that going for em. personally think no chance this is final shoe. even JB can’t put something this bad out…

The design is a little recycled, and borrowed, I hate the heel grooves :x it makes shoes WEAK for the stronger player.
I like the Air v. Zoom option, that’s a great option for stronger players(Air FTW!!!).

Whats with all the hate? While not the prettiest pair of air jordans, the tech looks really good. I like the insets around the ankles- if oulled off correctly, these guys could fit real snug, but not cut off circulation. I also dig the perforations. I can see how those can guard against Injuries sustained through landing on your feet the wrong way. The striations on the sole also appear pretty well placed. Again- it wont win any beauty contests, but this seems like a keeper to me. You people are idiots

I think Jordan Brand played it a bit TOO safe with the looks on this one, although that patent rand has some interesting story telling going on (looks like the milky way or something). Like Duke said, I hope these perform as well as the 2010′s did.
As critical as people were with the “window’s” from the 2010, they were a key performance element. I felt they really helped to lock in around the midfoot.
But these look like JB played it pretty safe. What separates this shoe from a Team Jordan shoe?
I do like the interchangable platforms. (Didn’t adidas already do that?)
But, if these go nikeID, people will beast…

The more I look at it, the more it reminds me of the Air Jordan X, design wise. Very understated.

Man, Jordan shoes are looking like trash for the past few years. The shoes look like crap so do the clothing. What happened??? I used to buy each and every pair but I haven’t even liked a pair since the AJ 22
