Every holiday season, the Jordan 11 returns in one of the most anticipated releases of Jordan Brand’s yearly retro release slate. Any thought that the brand was running out of ideas have been shut down this year as the Jumpman is rumored to release not one, but two patent leather gems to hold you down, and both are entirely new colorways rooted in Michael Jordan’s past.
While the pair carries a traditional UNC Tar Heels theme throughout, it does so in an entirely new way. We’re breaking down the finer details with the best preview images yet courtesy of Marquee Sole as the specifications might surprise you. From the patent leather shape and size to the stitching on the iconic Jumpman branding, the Jordan 11 Navy shows that Jordan Brand isn’t afraid to mix things up while keeping a few things on the more traditional side.
