Continuing its 25th Anniversary celebration of the Air Jordan 11, Jordan Brand has created a first for the silhouette, infusing it with Nike Adapt self-lacing tech. Just like it’s predecessors in the Adapt family such as the Adapt BB 2.0 and Adapt Auto Max, the Air Jordan 11 “Adapt” uses an App to tighten and loosen the laces or through the use of buttons at the mid foot.
For the most part, the overall silhouette stays true to the 11’s aesthetic with a few minor adjustments. A translucent layer covers the upper portion of the sneaker including the lace eyelet area as well as the Jumpman logo at the heel. Instead of regular laces, thin cords have been equipped as part of Adapt technology’s lock-down device. Tinker Hatfield’s sketches remain true in terms of the colorway he originally used as well as an icy sole that rounds out the look.
Be on the look out for the Air Jordan 11 “Adapt” to drop on December 30.
