Air Jordan XI Original Dissected
Nearly 15 years later the OG is broken down, literally.
words_Nick Engvall From the recent chaos that surrounded the release of the Space Jam Air Jordan XI, it's safe to say that the Air Jordan XI is the most popular of the Jordan lineage. It's arguable what colorway is most popular, but the Chicago Bulls colorway of black and red is definitely near the top for many. The Bred colorway is one of the few OG pairs that I have kept over the years, so personally I've always wondered how the insides of my originals look. I was excited when I saw that Nike Mania went through the process of dissecting an original pair from 1996. The results are pretty incredible to look at. I would never have the heart to do this to a pair myself as there is too much sentimental value in the memory packed Bred colorway for me. It's actually impressive to see how the shoe has held up for nearly 15 years. With the exception of the Air Unit being essentially non-existent, all other parts are in relatively good condition. Aesthetically they may be a fairly beat up, but I honestly would have expected worse after seeing the first picture below. via Sneakernews
