Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Air Jordan 11, the Jordan Brand will be launching the Air Jordan 11 “Adapt”, equipped with Nike’s self-tightening technology.
Inspired by the fictional self-lacing Nike Mag from Back To The Future, Nike introduced the technology for real in 2016 and has since been incorporated in a range of products including the Adapt BB and HyperAdapt.
The fit of the Air Jordan 11 “Adapt” can be adjusted on a dedicated app, which can also be used to customise the colour and light scheme of the shoe.
The shoe will also come with a charging pad and plug, making the experience of powering them up as seamless as possible.
While the Jordan 11 may seem like an odd silhouette to take on the Adapt technology, there is some significance to its history. Legendary designer Tinker Hatfield originally intended for the AJ11 to be a laceless shoe, so the launch of the Adapt AJ11 is silhouette coming full circle.
The shoe is expected to launch on December 30, 2020.

Originally released in 1995, one of the most iconic pairs worn by Michael Jordan is making its way back onto the shelves.
While many associate Jordan’s reign with the Air Jordan 1, the Air Jordan 11 easily comes close having been the pair that MJ wore after returning to basketball post-retirement.
Although the term “grail” has been thrown around onto many silhouettes and sneakers these days, it’s no understatement in saying that the Air Jordan 11 “Concord” belongs amongst the grails of the world.
In fact, the re-release of the “Concord” has been racking up a lot of talk-abouts recently and may easily become of the hottest selling pairs of 2018.
This remastered version is an exact recreation of the pair first worn by MJ, equipped with the original patent leather cut and the number 45 on the heel, resembling MJ’s jersey number when he returned, as his number 23 jersey had been retired.
The pair drops in Singapore and Malaysia on December 8 on Nike.com at 12pm (local time).

The Air Jordan 11 Low in White/Emerald Rise, or more commonly known as “Easter”, has been confirmed for a release in Singapore and Malaysia.
The drop will take place on Saturday (March 31), a day before Easter Sunday, the same release date as the rest of the world.
The upcoming pair, which could easily be mistaken for the “Concord”, comes in a white upper with emerald green patent leather overlays that appear black from certain angles. Iridescent outsoles at the bottom provide an icy finish to the shoe.
To secure a pair, make sure you head over to Nike.com at 9am on March 31.

The Jordan Brand will be releasing its tuxedo-matching Air Jordan 11 Retro Low “Barons” on May 27, and Singapore will be included in the drop.
Featuring a patent leather upper and a shiny polished mudguard, the kicks are inspired by Michael Jordan’s move from basketball to baseball, having played for the minor league Birmingham Barons.[caption id="attachment_4968" align="alignnone" width="940"] Image: Nike[/caption]
Unlike previous Barons-inspired retros, the kicks however trades pinstripes for a fully black upper, this time in nubuck instead than mesh.
