If there is one thing constant with sneaker releases, it’s that the Air Jordan 11 never misses a holiday season. But this year, Jordan Brand gifted us two new colorways of the Jordan 11, introducing a new form of the shoe to add to its legacy. The Jordan 11 Adapt is the first self-lacing Air Jordan to ever release, marking new territory for accessible footwear for those with disabilities as well as upgrading technological advances to sneaker culture.
The Air Jordan 11 Adapt delivers a unique approach to the traditional basketball sneaker. The upper is composed of its quintessential patent leather wrapping, while mixed with lightweight textile material and a crimson Jumpman on the heel. The midsole is where things get interesting, featuring light-up buttons to help adjust the shoe’s tightness to the wearer’s liking. As always, the outsole holds a carbon fiber plate for stability on the court.
The Air Jordan 11 Adapt dropped in December 2020 for $500
