The Air Jordan 11 Low IE “Black Cement” is the alternate low-top edition of Michael Jordan’s eleventh signature shoe that takes inspiration liberally from one of the greatest colorways ever— “Black Cement." This special Summer 2020 release of the Jordan 11 Low IE, which stands for “International Exclusive,” is an ode to the Jordan 3 “Black Cement” design. Jordan briefly wore this silhouette in a “Bred” makeup during the ‘96 NBA Playoffs. As for this shoe, black leather forms the base of the upper, and is contrasted by a toe-to-heel elephant print overlay. A Cement Grey liner and leather tongue with red embroidered Jumpman branding contrasts the black cotton laces. The look is drawn to a close with a white midsole and semi-translucent outsole, which borrows the familiar forefoot and heel traction pod and carbon fiber midfoot plate. Release date: July 16, 2020.
