Air Jordan 11 Retro – Jubilee

Michael Jordan once said, “You must expect great things of yourself before you can do them.” These are some of the principles with which the basketball and sporting legend has lived by. We suppose that is the very same principle that was applied when the Jordan 11s were made. This shoe bears a lot of significance to Michael and the basketball and sporting world at large. The Air Jordan 11 Retro is the shoe that he wore when he came back from retirement and on the run to winning his fourth championship. The Jordan brand has celebrated this shoe by releasing a classic Air Jordan 11 Retro pair to commemorate the shoes’ Jubilee.

How did the Air Jordan 11 become a favorite

What made the shoe a fan favorite is its ties to different historic moments in the basketball world. It was deemed a very comfortable shoe thus gaining favor among fellow league players as well. As if that was not enough. The Jordan 11s also gained a lot of favor because of its linkage with Jordan’s Space Jam movie. This movie came round about 1995-1996 season. To couple to its hype, Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won a championship. Talk about having a great year is it not.

That of Greatness – His Royal Airness

To go back to the initial quote in the beginning of the article, it is safe to say that the legend himself had a certain level of expectation. It was not only for himself in the basketball court but also from his Jordan shoe designers. I suppose it is safe to say that the mission was accomplished. Almost 25 years later, the Jordan 11s are still one of the most popular Jordan shoes both in the sporting world and in the urban culture space.
