Who should NOT buy the Air Jordan 11 Retro

The Air Jordan 11 Retro is definitely not for those who do not have time to break in their shoes. Being a Jordan shoe and a retro at that, this is also not for those who are on a budget. There are cheaper options that perform as well or even better than this.

Also, wide-footers might not have a good time with this shoe.

The AJ 11 Retro's off-court appeal is undeniable

The Air Jordan XI Retro was a true head-turner, and its classic look triggered bittersweet nostalgia.

The AJ 11 Retro has a nice grip on clean courts

We appreciated the mix of solid and clear rubber in the outsole; the hard rubber grips the floor when the sticky rubber starts to attract dust.

Speaking of dust, it really affected the grip in the long run. Wiping was really necessary.

Quality is truly there

The craftsmanship is commendable; it made us feel, even just for a little while, that this shoe's truly worth its price.

Yep, it is breathable and supportive!

The padded mesh on the upper is breathable and provides good lockdown; it feels like the first Zoom Kobe Protro of Nike hugging the ankle.
