AIR JORDAN 11
His feet back on the court, and his eyes set firmly on the prize, Michael Jordan returned strong with his familiar break-neck pace. En route to one of his most impressive years to date, Jordan clinched MVP, All-Star MVP and Finals MVP before securing his fourth championship ring.
The Air Jordan XI lent MJ’s return a touch of class. Its patent leather shine spoke of aerodynamics while embodying an informal elegance. Tinker Hatfield listened when Michael Jordan said he wanted patent leather on a sneaker--something versatile for basketball and formal occasions. Hatfield responded in 1995 and 1996’s Air Jordan 11, often regarded as the most beloved signature silhouette of all. Wrapped in patent leather from toe to heel and topped with ballistic mesh and leather, Jordan wore the 11 to another NBA championship with the Bulls and in Space Jam (1996).
