11 Reasons Why You Need the Air Jordan 11 Bred In Your Life
The classic merge of black and red to create the iconic BRED colorway that everyone loves makes it a key reason you should cop these sneakers this December! The all-black upper creates a stark offset with the vivid white midsole and red outsole with hints of red on the heel and the lace keeper! Also, the fact that it comes in full-fam size is a definite plus!

The Jumpman Logo
So, the Jumpman logo is arguably the most well-known and recognizable logo in sports, and weâ€™re always down for the dude being on our kicks! Thatâ€™s why the vibrant red silhouette of the Jumpman on these Air Jordan 11 sneakers is just another reason to cook!
The Patent Leather
These classic kicks are covered in high-cut patent leather all around them, giving it a shiny finished look! Pretty heavy on the leather! And weâ€™re living for it! What an excellent way to stay true to the Air Jordan 11 roots! We loved them the first time; we still love them 23 years later. So, weâ€™re kind of stoked that they didnâ€™t mess with this feature.

The Hidden Codes
AND, letâ€™s not forget about the hidden words â€śJUMPMAN JORDANâ€ť on the shoelace tab! Just turn your sneakers sideways, and read the hidden words vertically. Pretty cool, huh? Jordan is known to give us a lot of hidden details that make Jordans excessively iconic! You canâ€™t consider them signature shoes if you donâ€™t leave your signature on them!
The Arch-Supporting Plate
Also, on the outsole, we have the arch-supporting plate peeking out from underneath the rubber outsole. Giving it a sort of like a polka dot pattern right down the middle of the outsole, which is a real plus to the whole look. It just takes it to a whole other level of different! A real head-turner!

We got the full-length Air sole unit on the sneakers’ outsole in the vibrant varsity red color that weâ€™ve grown so used to! And we got the carbon fiber plate along the midfoot! Proper support for your feet. You canâ€™t expect anything less from Michael Jordan, can you? And, it provides incredible traction, so you donâ€™t slip on the field.Â
Lucky Number 23
If you turn the sneaker around and check the heel tab, the first thing youâ€™d see is a bunch of parallel lines, probably. But, if you take a second look, youâ€™d notice that itâ€™s the number 23 on the heel! This is Jordanâ€™s legendary number that he wore on his jersey while playing for the Bulls!
The Ballistic Mesh
Another reason to cop the AJ11Bred sneakers is the ballistic mesh that covers the upper of these kicks! Itâ€™s all over the tongue and collar, which makes it more breathable. This gives it a kind of shimmering pattern which creates a pretty excellent contrast with the sleek leather! Also, this looks a clean and edgy feel to it! All-the-more reasons to love this silhouette!

When you buy a basketball sneaker, you look for mostly traction and cushioning, amongst other things. Well, this AJ11 has it all. It has traction pads on the heel and forefoot, which gives it an excellent grip! Itâ€™ll keep you moving for sure! It also has that full-length Air unit which provides the perfect amount of cushioning for that slam dunk!

The Light-weight Factor
So, another thing to look into when buying savage-looking basketball shoes is the weight of it! You donâ€™t want your shoes to weigh you down on the court, and thatâ€™s what makes this Air Jordan 11 even more perfect! Itâ€™s considered a lightweight â€śfeatherâ€ť sneaker, which is pretty damn awesome! DO YOU NEED MORE REASONS?
The Resale Value
Well, if youâ€™re still not sold on why you need to cop these sneakers, then why not cop them to sell them? Jordans do pretty well on resale platforms; thatâ€™s why you canâ€™t go wrong flipping a pair of the Jumpmanâ€™s sneakers! Either way, itâ€™s a good cook, and you wonâ€™t regret it!
