THE AIR JORDAN 11 - THE ONES WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR
The Air Jordan 11 golf shoes are the ones we've all been waiting for. Safely one of the most famous sneakers in the world, the Jordan 11 silhouette in the retro "Concord" colour way is as iconic as the come and we're very excited that Nike Golf have finally adapted the shoe for the links.
A brief history lesson, for those who don't already know. The Jordan 11 sneaker was the basketball shoe which Michael Jordan wore during NBA Play-Offs during his 1995 comeback; specifically wearing this white/black patent leather combination during a semi-final match for the Chicago Bulls.
Various colours of his eleventh signature shoe were worn throughout the 95/96 title winning season which followed, but it's this white & black combination which is now affectionately known as "The Grail" in the sneaker universe.
What's more, these "Concords" were designed by Tinker Hatfield - a world renowned legendary designer - and his inclusion of the 360º patent leather mudguard was the key detail which made these sneakers truly stand out from the crowd. It's a design element which was completely new and never previously seen on any pair of Jordan sneakers that came before; this focal point of the design is exactly what continues to cement the AJ11 sneakers as the true icon that they are today.
