Christmas Day is always a special one in the NBA, with players across the league bringing out themed sneakers to celebrate the holiday. Jordan Brand athlete Kawhi Leonard was no exception, wearing an Air Jordan 31 exclusive for the Spurs-Bulls game and also donning this Air Jordan 11.
The sneaker has an all-gold upper the likes of which has never been used on a retail release for the Jordan 11 before. There's a precedent for this kind of design for Leonard, who was previously blessed with an exclusive gold Air Jordan 12.
Jordan Brand experimented with gold on this silhouette at retail this year, bringing the look to the Air Jordan 11 Low via this pair.
