Jordan 11 Retro Low
This Jordan 11 Retro Low has a bright, summery feel manifested by its use of light colors, for a highly appealing design. Its nickname, Bright Citrus, reflects its tonal makeup, which begins with a partly translucent outsole decorated in a vivid shade of orange that the sneaker is named for. This hue extends to the opaque pods beneath the forefoot and heel, both of which contain herringbone tread patterns that effectively support the wearer through a range of movements. A Bright Citrus Jumpman can just about be made out behind the outsole on the lightweight carbon fiber plate that bolsters the sturdiness of the whole shoe. A grid of black and Bright Citrus squares decorates the rest of this last component, peeking out from under it to display its bold colors on the medial shank.
Above this, the sneaker is largely white, starting from the spongy Phylon foam midsole, whose interior is filled with soft Air cushioning, and continuing into the patent leather mudguard that enwraps the entire upper. This glossy panel sits below a smooth white leather upper and heel overlay, with the AJ11’s easily recognisable webbed lacing system laid over it in the same tone. The laces themselves are white and rope-like in structure, giving them added durability. A layer of leather covers the topside of the tongue, while its underside is blanketed in a flexible material, both in white. This soft coating also stretches across the inner walls, before the insole switches to the radiant Bright Citrus once again. A white Jumpman has been printed onto the sockliner, and another smaller one can be seen on a patch sewn into the back of the tongue, this time in Bright Citrus.
This vibrant shade of orange reappears again in various complementary highlights on the outer. One of these is the strip of Bright Citrus that divides the tongue through the center, its white Jordan and Jumpman branding contrasting pleasantly with its orange background. Meanwhile, the heel tab displays the number 23 in Bright Citrus, and a miniature Jumpman logo has been delicately embroidered into the heel below it, thus completing this charming design with a concluding splash of orange.
