I’m a happy little girl after receiving this mail – I’ve been waiting for these shoes and it comes with a lot of treats in the box it was in. ? I got these Air Jordan 11 Concord low sent by a friend from the UK and he sent me a month-long supply of english treats!
These classic “Concord” colorway were released last month, and it wasn’t easy getting our hands on them. It’s easy to fall in love with the icy bottom soles, and patent leather of this pair! While they aren’t as comfortable to wear when playing basketball, they are comfortable enough to walk in.
The Air Jordan 11 “Concord” low is one of the most iconic and beloved sneakers in the Air Jordan line. Originally released in 1995 and designed by Tinker Hatfield, the Air Jordan 11 is celebrated for its combination of performance technology and sleek design. The “Concord” colorway is particularly famous and highly sought after. Here are the key features and details of the Air Jordan 11 Concord:
- Patent Leather Upper: The most striking feature of the Air Jordan 11 Concord is its glossy black patent leather upper. This patent leather adds a premium and stylish element to the shoe’s design, setting it apart from other basketball sneakers.
- Mesh Upper: Alongside the patent leather, the shoe also features a white mesh upper. This mesh provides breathability and comfort.
- Black and White Colorway: The Concord colorway combines black and white, with the patent leather and mesh upper in black and white midsole. The contrast between these two colors creates a timeless and elegant look.
- Concord Purple Accents: The shoe is named “Concord” because of the deep purple accents that appear in various details, including the Jumpman logo on the tongue and the “23” on the heel. These purple accents add a touch of color and contrast to the predominantly black and white design.
- Carbon Fiber Shank Plate: The Air Jordan 11 features a carbon fiber shank plate in the midsole. This plate enhances stability and support while reducing weight.
- Icy Outsole: The outsole of the Air Jordan 11 Concord is made of a translucent blue rubber material, often referred to as an “icy” outsole. This design detail adds to the shoe’s overall aesthetic appeal.
- Performance and Style: While originally designed as a basketball shoe, the Air Jordan 11 Concord quickly became popular as a lifestyle sneaker due to its unique design. It is often worn casually as a fashion statement.
Historical Significance: The Air Jordan 11 Concord is associated with Michael Jordan’s return to the NBA in 1995 after briefly retiring. He wore these shoes during the 1995-1996 NBA season and led the Chicago Bulls to an NBA Championship, making these shoes even more iconic in sneaker and basketball history.
The Air Jordan 11 Concord is celebrated not only for its design but also for its connection to Michael Jordan’s storied career and its impact on sneaker culture. It has been re-released in various iterations and retros over the years, consistently capturing the attention of sneaker enthusiasts and collectors.
Got the daughter her own pair as well. And she hasn’t complained walking in them (she is picky when it comes to shoes).
