It is always sweet when Air Jordan decides to release a classic colorway to the masses. For this year, the Air Jordan 11 “Gym Red” hits the stores and while there have been previous “Gym Red” colorways, this 2017 release should be just a bit different from the rest.
Air Jordan 11 Gym Red
Color: Gym Red/Black-White
Style Code: 378037-623
Release Date: December 9, 2017
Product Design and Colors
Making use of two different materials for the shoe body, Air Jordan diversifies shoe texture by using smooth leather for the lower portion of the shoes and a texture surface for the upper portion. While both follow the same gym red coloring, the two materials helped create a distinctive look for the kicks.
Of course, gym red isn’t the only color seen on these shoes. The kicks are also dressed in shades of black and white. The white is confined mainly to the sole of the shoes while the black is used for the icons and logos. There’s the unmistakable Jumpman logo on the side of the kicks in a fairly small scale. From the back you can see the symbol 23 embroidered onto the material.
The tongue and laces follow the same red pattern. Since red is a fairly popular shade, it shouldn’t be a problem to find replacement shoelaces should the old one get lost. You might have to settle for laces in a slightly different shade however so just try not to lose the original laces that come with the kicks. Hopefully, extra laces will be included in the box upon purchase.
Capping off the Air Jordan 11 “Gym Red” is a translucent outsole, beautifully rounding up the overall appeal of the kicks. With the white and translucent shades essentially offering a neutral feel to the shoes, the red upper pops out even more – allowing users to catch everyone’s eye the minute they enter the room.
Product Price and Release
The kicks will be available by December 9, 2017. That’s still a long way away which should give you time to save up on the cost of these shoes. The retail price is set at $220 which definitely makes it more expensive than other Air Jordan shoes out in the market today. Of course, the fact that the kicks are a classic justifies the hefty price tag attached to the Air Jordan 11 “Gym Red”.
All in all, the Air Jordan 11 “Gym Red” is built for attention. It won’t be surprising if a celeb gets caught wearing these kicks on the red carpet. If you don’t like red however, you can always check out other models available under the AJ name.
