The Life and Culture of Kicks

The Air Jordan 2011… Does it look like this or not?

(no wonder there hasn’t been a peep about these kicks in months)

Ok its a new year and promises have been made to who ever or where ever and such . Here we have what COULD be the Air Jordan 2011. Doing a search for the Air Jordan 2011 will show just what the sneaker looks like. IN FACT Dwane Wade of the Miami Heat wore the AJ 2011 (if they are really the AJ2011) on Christmas day.

(anybody notice D. Wade changing back to the AJ2010?)

So what’s the deal? Is this the sneaker? Many, and I mean MANY, sneaker blogs say yes it is. I actually hope THAT IT ISN’T and this is some sort of sample or maybe a AJ2011.5 version or a lite version or something.

Then again, I have to admit that I hated the AJ2010 at first and after hearing the story behind it, I found myself liking it much more than I thought I would (but ONLY in certain colorways).

(Air Jordan 2010 UNDERTOW… straight HEAT)

If this is going to be the Air Jordan 2011 (that has some sort of *wink* to the Air Jordan 11 clearly seen in the profile) then so be it, but please for the love of colorways, make sure this sneaker has some wonderful materials and has some very cool colors.

I haven’t found anyone on the net so far who has attempted to re-color the AJ2011 but its sure to happen soon.

THE BIG QUESTION

The big question for me for all of this is why did Team Jordan want the pictures taken down from sites such as Sneakernews, Nicekicks and so forth?

Companies from time to time have to protect their intellectual property in order to show a court (if needed) that they actually care about their intellectual property if someone takes it from them. Don’t want to get into the technical mumbo-jumbo but maybe that’s why???  I suppose just on the face of things, even though they know they need the promotion, they probably felt that they wanted to control the message more with a D. Wade debut on Christmas day.

Whatever.

Its 2011 and its time for some real info (and pics)  for the AJ line. The Air Jordan  2011  is set to release in February.  Since the colorway is all over the place now, including the very sites Brand Jordan convinced to take down,  decided to post some of the pics here (pics from OSneaker)

DEATAILS

February 19 2001 release

Air Jordan enjoys marking the new year with a new silhouette that is meant
to carry on the legacy of Michael Jordan. The latest introduction is a
pair of Air Jordan 2011’s, the aesthetic of this pair is very similar to
the pairs designed during the heyday of Jordan brand. It is simplistic,
with interesting functional features such as an interchangeable sole
which has a torsion plate attached to the shoe. The interchangeable
soles feature the AIR technology which improves traction and landing on
your feet. This simple model features neat cuts and design ideas which
will help it stand out.
