Snakeskin and Air Jordans go together like ice cream and cookie dough. Nothing says warm weather quite like a clean pair of white based Jays. Since 2012 Jordan Brand has dropped at least one pair of 11 Lows, and this weekend a new edition to the Air Jordan 11 Low family joins the roster with the release of a new Blue Snakeskin colorway!
These fire kicks come equipped with a white leather upper, blue snakeskin mudguard and translucent outsole. On-foot pics of these 11 Lows look spectacular and offer a great preview of what they’ll look like on you!
Pick up your pair on April 19th from major retailers like Finish Line for $185! Get ready for the release with a quick walk through Air Jordan 11 Low Snakeskin history starting with the 2001 OGs.
The snakeskin motif made its debut on the Air Jordan 11 Low when the silhouette originally released. We’re all familiar with the traditional build of the Air Jordan 11 (like the Concords) and the IE variant, but a true low-top version of the Air Jordan 11 was unseen until 2001. Back then Jordan Brand kept their color palates and material lists very modest, when compared to other brands, but ’01’s introduction of the 11 Low ushered in a new era lead by the OG Snakeskins…
Man, hasn’t that outsole yellowed beautifully? Now viewed as a modern grail to some, the OG Snakeskin Air Jordan 11 Lows instantly awed sneakerheads with its lux take on MJ’s most fabled shoe. Obviously direct inspiration was taken from these beauties when JB created the 2019 Blue Snakeskin Lows, but this year’s release features a much truer shade of blue (the OGs were more of a metal blue).
Ladies game crazy.
Bold, green and beautiful!
In the near future we’ll be treated to a special edition Air Jordan 11 Low Snakeskin in a monochrome bone colorway. Look for these to drop 06.01.19 in men’s and women’s sizing.
