These Air Jordan 11 Lows are releasing soon and are much more than just the little brother of the Air Jordan 11


Some sneakers don’t need no “breathing new life” into them; they are cultural staples and forever appreciated. The Air Jordan 11 is one of them. While we might go into the whole story one day, this one is about the Air Jordan 11 Low. With the highly anticipated release of the Air Jordan 11 Low “Cement Grey,” we take a quick look at the history of the low-top version of the AJ11.

The AJ11 Low was first released in 2001; it’s, therefore, not an original silhouette. However, there was a low-top version of the Air Jordan 11 in 1996, but that one was called Air Jordan 11 IE (rumored to stand for International Exclusive). Not mirroring the design of the mid-cut OG version, the AJ11 IE had leather overlays and mesh vents where usually the patent leather would sit.

While many fans were waiting for a low-top release of the OG looks, it took five years for the Jumpman to release the highly anticipated AJ11 Low with patent leather overlays together with the first run of AJ11 retros.

The first releases of Air Jordan 11 Lows in 2001 included some favored colorways. Here is just a selection.

Air Jordan 11 Retro Low “Cherry”
Air Jordan 11 Retro Low “Metallic Silver”
Air Jordan 11 Retro Low “Citrus”
Air Jordan 11 Retro Low “Columbia Blue”

Perfect as a summer sneaker version of the regular AJ11, the low-top Air Jordan 11 is now about to return in its classic form and specs featuring two new colorways.
