The IE Version Swaps The Patent Leather For Mesh
I don’t know how you would consider this, whether it can be considered as a “Space Jam” model, or just a mere variation of the Jordan 11 that borrows the same colour blocking as the original. We’ll leave that up to your discretion.
What is important however, is the change in materials. Of course, the standard Jordan 11 silhouette has nothing new done to it, except that the patent leather portions are now replaced with breathable mesh instead. “I felt like [patent leather] was contrary to the summer feel,” Hatfield explained. “The shoe didn’t need to feel so stiff and heavy. For the summer, I wanted something that was lighter and easier to wear.” This current iteration however, mixes a little bit of patent leather with mesh for a best of both worlds kind of vibe.
The Jordan 11 Low IE will release on the 13th of July on Nike.com for a price of RM 735. Sacrilegious, or an acceptable change?
