Jordan Brand has seen fit to grace us with an Air Jordan XI Low featuring patent leather for the first time in over a decade. This White/Varsity Red-Black colorway, which is a nice approximation of classic Chicago Bulls “home” colors, can be laced on your feet in just a matter of days, as the kicks have an official release scheduled for this Saturday. While the low-cut silhouette is an untraditional look for the signature mesh nylon and patent leather construction of the vaunted XI style, they’re still XIs. Loyalists will likely find a way to get their hands on the kicks, notwithstanding Jordan Brand’s loaded release schedule for May (i.e., these Black/Safety Orange IVs the following week and Cool Grey XIs the week after).
Color: White/Varsity Red-Black
Release Date: May 5th, 2012 (Saturday)
