We take a closer look at the Air Jordan 11 'Space Jam'
Originally worn by his Airness in the 1995 NBA Playoffs, and then again in 1996 against the Monstars in the hit film Space Jam, the Air Jordan 11 'Space Jam' is legendary in its own right.
The instantly recognisable 11 silhouette has a stealthy black upper, with a luxury patent leather material that covers the lower section of the sneaker.
Featuribng the number 45 embroidered on the heel, this was Michael Jordan’s shirt number after he briefly came out of retirement in 1995. The 2016 edition of the Jordan 11 'Space Jam' is the first release of the trainer since the original that has this detail.
The iconic Jumpman logo has been placed on the side of the shoe in its original Concord Blue to stay true to the colourway that hit the big screen 20 years ago.
Sat on a clean white midsole with an icy outsole, this shoe was designed for the basketball court. It’s multi-directional pattern was made for enhanced grip, so you never put a foot wrong. The added feature of a carbon fibre spring plate changed the b-ball sneaker game, helping to keep the energy in your feet.
