Jordan 11 Retro Low
This Jordan 11 Retro Low comes in a sleek black colourway with powerful green highlights that make it a captivating sneaker. Underfoot, it begins upon a partially see-through outsole with wavy grip lines emanating across it from heel to toe. Bringing further traction as well as a striking look to the bottom of the shoe is a pair of opaque pods lined with herringbone tread patterns and exhibiting a vibrant lime green tone known as Volt. Between them lies a carbon fibre plate of two dark grey tones that is fully visible on the medial shank and somewhat apparent behind the outsole through the midfoot. Here, a white Jumpman can be found, while oval-shaped cuts in the supportive layer of carbon fibre reveal the white of the Phylon foam midsole laid over the top of the outsole. Full-length Air cushioning hides inside the midsole, making it incredibly comfortable to walk on.
The upper, meanwhile, is surrounded by a large mudguard decorated with an eye-catching snakeskin pattern incorporating various shimmering shades of green – a feature that has seen the shoe nicknamed Green Snakeskin. The quarter is coated in a durable black ballistic mesh which continues over the top of the tongue as well, and textile strips in the same tone reach across its surface to create a webbed lacing system for the black rope-style laces to thread through. The shoe’s inner lining is also black, as is its insole, but the latter feature contains a Volt-coloured Jumpman, which is mirrored by another sewn into the patch in the back of the tongue.
Back on the outer, another branding patch has been placed across the middle of the tongue, this one displaying white writing that reads “Jordan” and “Jumpman” if the shoe is turned on its side. In between the two words, yet another Volt Jumpman can be seen. Elsewhere, a small heel tab forms out of the black inner lining to provide space for the number 23 to be stamped in white. Just below this, in the centre of the black leather heel overlay, is a final memorable Jumpman logo, once again embroidered in radiant Volt thread to conclude this Air Jordan 11 with a colourful flourish.
