The History of Air Jordan 11 Lows
words // Zac Dubasik
The Air Jordan 11 is undoubtedly one of the most important models in sneaker history. And although it's best known in its mid-top cut, it has a long history as a low as well.
You can go as far back as 1996, when MJ wore Black/Red Lows during the Finals, and later on wore Concord Lows for the Bulls Championship parade. A handful of seasons later, the Concord Low was seen again on court, worn by Derek Anderson while with the Spurs with custom "DA1" stitching on the tongue.
Following today's preview of possible new colorways of the Air Jordan 11 Low, we decided to take a look back at the history of the shoe.
