AJ11: A Backstory

Each Jordan silhouette has a rich history and a unique story to tell. But Jordan 3s and Jordan 11s have a special place in every sneakerhead’s heart. But since Jordan 3s already got their moment of fame, it’s time to learn more about the 11s. First thing you need to know is that it’s the silhouette that celebrated Michael Jordan’s return to the NBA after he retired for the first time in 1993 to join baseball. 

This only meant one thing then. The Jordan line would stop at the 10s. But that’s one thing Tinker Hatfield didn’t believe in as he kept working on the design of the Jordan 11, regardless of everything happening. He had no doubt that Michael Jordan would come back and join the NBA again. Next thing you know, MJ came back a year and a half later as he led the Chicago Bulls to a victory that went down in history. And upon his return, Jordan Brand released the first Jordan 11.
