Daily Deal: Air Jordan 2011 – White – Team Red

August 27th, 2013 By

The Air Jordan 2011 was one of the most well-received signature releases in the post-retirement Jordan catalogue. Jordan Brand revolutionized their sneaker line with a replaceable midsole depending on what playing surface you planned on hooping on and how much cushioning you needed, while other memorable features like the heavily detailed Jumpman branding on the back made this a more than memorable shoe. Today’s daily deal features one of the original colorways to be released in white and team red that could be seen on the feet of Dwyane Wade while he originally signed to JB. At well below the original retail price this may be a hard deal to pass up on, so head to the gallery to view more images and pick this Air Jordan 2011 up today from esqltd1129 on eBay.

Now that the NBA Championship resides in South Beach is it possible we’ll see an increased interest in the super bright pink and blue color combo associated with that geographic location? It’s possible but we can’t figure out how people would go any more crazy with it than they are now, with the look spreading to other Swoosh models and frequently popping up on customs as is.

Air Jordan 2011: Dwyane Wade “Australia” PE

June 7th, 2012 By

Are these an outtake from a possible Dwyane Wade move to Australia in light of last year’s lockout? Unfortunately no, as the timing doesn’t really line up what with D-Wade having his own signature sneaker by then and all. Instead this Australian themed (peep the Kangaroo hits on the insole) Air Jordan 2011 player exclusive was worn by Flash for a Jordan Brand basketball event in the land down under, bearing a burnt orange colorway that sort of channels the rugged landscape of Austrlia. Click through for the full photos of the Air Jordan 2011 “Austrlia” PE for Dwyane Wade and check out the price tag on them now from thecoolshoeshine on eBay.

Update: These are not PEs, but a custom by Australia-based sneaker customizer Sekure D.
