Air Jordan 11 Low - "Baroque" Customs with Chameleon Carbon Fiber | By Rocket Boy Nift


Its low, streamlined form became the most recognizable silhouette from Jordan Brand back in 2001. While sales were tepid at first, the low version of the Air Jordan XI generated strong feelings among sneakerheads. On one side, some thought the move was a bold one for designers at Beaverton, others thought the concept was a ludicrous one. Oddly enough, when Jordan Brand re-released the same Air Jordan XI Low in White/Black-True Red earlier this year, it was met with a fervor of interests instead. Utilizing the same model, musician/customizer Rocket Boy Nift (aka RBN) was able to go a step further for his Air Jordan 11 Low "Baroque" Customs. With the original black sockliner, eyelet and translucent icy outsole still in place, RBN wrapped the upper's white leather portion in a "chameleon" carbon fiber-like fabric, so named for its ability to change from purple to gold. The first of four designs by Rocket Boy Nift for his "October Surprise" Pack, you can find out more about this and other customs on RBN's official site.
