Updated April 21st, 2017: The Air Jordan 11 Low “Barons” releases on May 27th, 2017 for $175.
Summertime is always the season of the Air Jordan 11 Low, as Jordan Brand brings the patent leather lowtop back in a number of new and old inspirations alike. The last time that we saw the Air Jordan 11 Low “Barons”, we previewed the grade school size run of the baseball-inspired colorway, but today we finally have a look at the adult size featuring a premium black upper with a unique gradient fade throughout the patent leather mudguard.
Michael Jordan’s first retirement came as a shock to many, especially when the greatest basketball player alive decided to ditch the hardwood for the baseball diamond. Mike signed a deal with the Chicago White Sox minor league affiliated Birmingham Barons, as the Sox muted white and black pinstripes were translated to the Double-A club. While there’s no pinstripes on this retro like in past Barons-referencing pairs, the black upper skips out on the Cordura mesh for a sturdier nubuck upper. The iridescent-like sheen found on the mudguard is similar to the Air Jordan 11 “72-10” but with the added benefit of Metallic Silver throughout.
What do you think of the Air Jordan 11 Low Barons? You can expect this pair to arrive in a family size run come April 2017, but there’s still no official Release Date pinned down just yet. Check out more detailed shots below and stay tuned for more updates right here on Sneaker News.
