When it comes to sneakers, change can be a very bad thing. Be it a low cut version of a high top or a subtle switch in colorblocking, one wrong turn can turn a blockbuster sneaker into a clearance rack space holder. So to see Nike get it extremely right with this Air Jordan 11 Low release was gratifying enough to deem the flavorful drop our Sneaker of the Week.

The iconic Air Jordan 11 as a low cut sneaker has been generally accepted but something about this specific colorway really brings the style into its own. The blend of midnight navy patent leather and grey mist mesh works exceptionally well together and ice blue outsole that it sits atop is absolute perfection.

You'll be able to cop these special edition Air Jordans on April 11 at 10 a.m. sharp over at Nike. They'll probably be at a retailer near you as well if you'd like to get some fresh air while getting your fresh Airs.
