Continuing with their daily celebration of the brand's iconic game shoe series as we near the launch of the new Air Jordan XX8, Jordan Brand highlights perhaps its most loved model today: the Air Jordan XI.

Designed by Tinker Hatfield while MJ was actually away playing baseball, the XI introduced patent leather to basketball shoes, and was surely an iconic and ahead-of-its-time on-court look. 

Check out this display-only Black / Lime Green colorway of the XI that Jordan unveiled earlier this morning. Would you want to see these release?
