When imagining a summer version of the Air Jordan 11 Low, Tinker Hatfield thought to remove sections of the patent leather on the shoe’s upper and replace them with mesh instead. This made the shoe lighter, flexible, and breathable.
This version, dubbed the “IE”, is making its return to Jordan Brand’s summer lineup this year, as seen by these first photos of the Air Jordan 11 Low IE in a “Space Jam” colorway.
The “Space Jam” 11 Low IE features an all-black upper, a white midsole, and an icy blue outsole. The toe box and tongue is made of smooth leather, while the rest of the upper is constructed with mesh and a patent leather overlay.
The Air Jordan 11 Low IE “Space Jam” will release on July 13, 2019 with a retail price of $170. Check out the official and additional photos below.
