Each model is accented with Militia Green, along with Black detailing a White midsole and Gum bottoms.

To go even further into one of the releases in particular, Tinker Hatfield explains why one of the most instantly recognizable element of the Air Jordan 11 IE, the patent leather, disappeared – regarding to all the Air Jordan 11 IE releases.

“I felt like [patent leather] was contrary to the summer feel,” Hatfield explains. “The shoe didn’t need to feel so stiff and heavy. For the summer, I wanted something that was lighter and easier to wear.”

Instead, as Hatfield elaborates, the upper composition featured a seasonally adaptable solution.

“I changed the pattern to put breathability in the right spots. Then, when you look at the different compositions, you want to fill in the gaps with something that could be decorative, like elephant print. I thought about trying textures and stitching. The mesh said something about summer, and the stitching we did really artfully. Doing that for the initial Air Jordan XI Low actually helped me think about how I was going to design the Air Jordan XII.”

At the same time, the Air Jordan XI Low’s tooling mirrored that of the original Air Jordan XI, foreshadowing the unit’s eventual iconic status.

Check out each model included in the Air Jordan Retro “Militia Green” Collection below and look for them to debut tomorrow at select Jordan Brand retailers.
