The Air Jordan 11 Low IE Is Arriving In Two Brand New Colorways

Introduction

You are probably familiar with the Air Jordan 11 Low IE, but you likely do not know what the “IE” actually means. Back in 2011, Nike revealed that the “IE” stands for “International Exclusive.” Jordan Brand introduced the Air Jordan 11 Low IE back in 1996. When designing it, Tinker Hatfield aimed to completely enhance and upgrade the Air Jordan 11 but in low-top form. Intended to be worn during the summer, the design, materials, stitching and textures were altered so that it would be lighter and more breathable. Even after twenty-two years, brand new colorways of the model continue to arrive among the Air Jordan releases 2018.

The Air Jordan 11 Low IE

Unlike the low-top versions of other Air Jordan models, the Air Jordan 11 Low IE is not an exact replica of its high-top counterpart. The patent leather mudguards happen to be one of the most distinguishable signature elements of the Air Jordan 11. However, Tinker Hatfield replaced them with unique, breathable overlays featuring the elephant print, which made Air Jordan 11 Low IE easier to wear and more lightweight for the summer. It ended up being not as heavy and stiff as the Air Jordan 11. Even the stitching that appears throughout its uppers is quite “artful” and unique, making it stand out even more.

The “Flash Crimson,” “Rio Teal” and “Ghost Green

Three brand new colorways of the Air Jordan 11 Low IE have been unveiled, dubbed “Flash Crimson,” “Ghost Green” and “Rio Teal.” All three of them are tonal iterations since their inner lining, laces, midsoles, and the rest of their uppers are almost completely covered in a single hue, namely Flash Crimson, Rio Teal and Volt, respectively. However, the “Jumpman” on their insoles and their elephant print overlays are covered in Grey, while they are also equipped with icy, translucent outsoles. These two Air Jordan 11 Low IE colorways are scheduled to make their retail debut on August 16th, 2018 for $175 each.
