Looking to reignite excitement for its collectors, Nike is gearing up to release a new Air Jordan 11 Retro, this time with a much more elegant look and availability as a limited-edition only.

The upper is completely monochrome, with a sleek gray suede making up its entirety. Even the laces are made from the high-end material, helping to complement the minimalist aesthetic. These laces are held in artfully, with bits of the material coming up from the rest of the upper to create a simplistic design that adds just the right amount of variance.

The Jumpman logo that's iconic to the brand and seen on former versions of the model is shown on the new Air Jordan 11 Retros in a slight manner -- with just an imprint of it decorating the upper near the heel.
