The “Reverse Concords” drop Saturday, June 8 for $140 at nike.com and other Nike retailers.
Just in time for summer, the Air Jordan 11 will be retro’d for the eighth consecutive year. The Air Jordan Retro Low, also known as the “Reverse Concords,” have a white patent leather base, black nylon mesh applied to the top of the upper, an icy transparent sole and black insole.
When the Air Jordan 11 launched in 1995 Jordan was playing minor league baseball with the Birmingham Barons. These “Reverse Concords” would have made an ideal on field player exclusive at the time because they would have matched his Barons jersey perfectly. When he returned to the Bulls in 1996, Jordan wore the Air Jordan 11 to claim another NBA Championship.
