Nike's Jordan Brand unveils a series of Air Jordan XI Low IE sneakers to end off its summer offerings of the year. The footwear model was originally worn by basketball all-star Michael Jordan during the NBA Playoffs in 1996, marking the year his team finished with a score of 72-10. The silhouette also marks the first His Airness' classics that got a low cut iteration. 'IE' references 'International Exclusive,' differentiating itself from the traditional Air Jordan XI Low because of its use of leather and mesh materials instead of patent leather.
The vibrant new sneakers are available in three different highlighter colorways including 'Crimson Flash,' 'Volt' and 'Rio Teal.' Each one is detailed with the signature elephant print throughout its midfoot panel. The entire piece is finished with mesh ventilation on the toe box, the sides and tongue, along with the Jumpman logo embellished on the tongue.
