The Nike Air Jordan 11 Retro Adapt seamlessly merges power-lacing technology with the time-tested style of a legendary Jordan Brand silhouette. The forward-thinking design delivers a customized, consistent fit at the touch of a button via smartphone with FitAdapt technology. Genuine leather blends with lightweight textile and carbon fiber to create a mix of classic and modern influences, with Nike Air cushioning in the sole adding bounce to every step.
Twenty-five years after original sketches of Tinker Hatfield’s Air Jordan XI design illuminated his intent to make a laceless shoe, Jordan Brand incorporates Nike Adapt power lacing technology into one of its most iconic models while remaining complementary to the original silhouette.
“Where the Air Jordan XI Jubilee celebrates the rich history of the Air Jordan XI, the Adapt iteration takes the silhouette into Jordan Brand’s future,” says Martin Lotti, Jordan Brand VP/Chief Design Officer. “By folding in the best of Nike technology, we’ve delivered on Tinker’s original vision of the Air Jordan XI, while simultaneously offering wearers the most personalized Jumpman shoes to date.”
The Nike Adapt technology for the Nike Air Jordan 11 Retro Adapt, which has been used on Nike performance basketball product as well as Nike sportswear, breathes new life into Jordan Brand innovation. Controlled by the wearer through Nike’s Adapt App, the forward-looking 2020 iteration of the Air Jordan XI provides real-time personalization and unrivaled fit and feel. Through the app, which will feature a Jordan-flavored interface, users can customize the Adapt buttons on the shoe’s midsole by personalizing the color scheme and flashing pattern of the buttons’ lights — making the technology an instant extension of the footwear.
