Shoes specially made for Michael Jordan are being auctioned off this year in the Air Jordan 11 Low silhouette with an all-white design. These are not basketball shoes however but golf shoes, as can be seen from those huge gripping cleats at the bottom. Specially designed for His Airiness himself, this pair comes in Jordan’s size of 13.
Design and Coloring
As already mentioned, the kicks are done in all white with a partially translucent sole. It is a very clean design as Nike opted to combine both simplicity and functionality in these shoes.
Other than the golf-specific tooling, the kicks come with all the designs you can expect from an Air Jordan exclusive. The tongue is done in white with the Jumpman icon proudly displayed on the center. The color of the icon is slightly lighter than the rest of the kicks, allowing it to stand out even if the base color is practically the same.
Air Jordan relied on the classical lines of the Air Jordan 11 for this “Low” model instead of investing on various colors. Aside from the typical lines creating depth, the shoe also make use of varying materials to help with texture. Hence, the soles are a smooth expanse of white while the upper portion has a bit more roughness on the surface. The end result is a clean and classically attractive design that is easy to wear anywhere other than the golf course.
The laces are also done in pure white, making them easily replaceable should there be a need to. From the back, you can also notice the Jumpman icon displayed on the top heel portion. Unlike the other logo however, this icon is a little smaller than most and you will have to practically squint at it before you can recognize the design.
Price and Release
Apparently, the shoes are already available in eBay with a variable price due to the auction procedure. There is no telling yet how much these shoes will eventually cost, but considering that they are a once-in-a-lifetime purchase, it is a sure bet that they will not sell cheap.
