Kicks: Air Jordan XI Orange Sample

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

Based on the response you guys gave to our slideshow on the Air Jordan XI, this post should get you talking, too.

Pictures of a sample white/orange XI have spread around the web today to mixed results. Naturally, whenever Jordan Brand strays from a classic in its line, it generates controversy among sneakerheads.

It seems that people are in two schools of thought on this thing:

- Don’t mess with a classic.

- I like this.

Where do you guys sit?

    Not with it, but only because orange doesn’t look that good.

    I like these! I mean… I honestly can’t hate on a pair of Jordan 11s. If it was Black instead of white… then i think i might like them a bit more

    11′s will always be that hot fiya (No Dylan) regardless of colour.

    I think they’re Fake Jays

    But if they’re not they’re nice.

  • AD

    lol dese is tough….. why not just get some orange stuff 2 match


    Mas o menos. But then again, this is my fav MJ sneaker so I don’t really like it when the colors r tinkered with. Keep it OG n my opinion

  • ripslam

    Knicks/Suns players could rock these…Carmelo’d look good in ‘em lol.
