OG Air Jordan 11 Low IE “Bred” Returns in 2021
The original Air Jordan 11 Low, the AJ11 Low IE, doesn’t get anywhere near as much love as it deserves. In the past, the silhouette has been subject to some pretty wild and adventurous colorways that aren’t the market’s friendliest. Add to that the fact that MJ barely wore the sneaker in its heyday and you’re gonna have a hard time moving units. But more recently, we’ve seen the silhouette turn a corner. Last year’s Black Cement release was an instant classic, as too was the preceding year’s “Space Jam” drop, both pleasing fans new and old. And as they say, all good things come in threes, and what better way to add to the recent resurgence than the OG Air Jordan 11 Low IE “Bred”? — the only colorway of the silhouette that Mike ever wore in an NBA game.
Being my first-pair of hooping Jordans, I can’t hold back my excitement, despite being an overall simplistic design. Its expected to arrive in its OG format; All black leather uppers and overlays, complete with stitching and cut-outs that show mesh uppers beneath. Striking red liners and tongue branding figuratively jump out, as too does the piercing white midsole against the stark blacks of the upper. Underfoot you can expect to see a fully-translucent clear outsole — not so much the smokey-aged outsole pictured on the 1996 OG below.
A release date for the return has been set for September 18th, 2021, so while we still have a big to wait, you can check out the OG release below to see what’s in store, and you’ll wanna keep your eyes glued to our official Twitter account for further updates as we move into the new year.
This pair is just one of an extensive lineup of Air Jordan releases previewed for the year ahead, all of which you can check out here on our comprehensive list of Air Jordan Release Dates 2021.
