Devotees of the Jordan Brand Legacy line are loyalists bordering on obsession: they line up for hours, if not days, on drop dates; they amass encyclopedic knowledge of every model the way Sabermetrics geeks collect stats on their favorite baseball players; they clean up beat pairs as if they were the restoration project of an historic art piece. And when they’re not dreaming of obtaining their grail object, they harbor fantasies of designing their own pair of Js. On August 16th Nike will indulge their creative impulses by launching the Air Jordan 2011 on NIKEiD. So circle your calendar, Jordan fans, your opportunity to become a sneaker designer is less than a week away. In the meantime, check out an assortment of sample concepts after the jump.
