Jordan Brand looks to give the Jordan Shoes 2017 a more royal look with this upcoming kids colorway. As the name hints, the Air Jordan 11 Velvet Night Maroon (aka “Heiress”) sports a beautiful Night Maroon suede upper, overlaid with matching velvet fabric in place of the patent leather that we’re all used to. Matching laces blend in perfectly, while metallic gold graphics give the sneaker an aura of royalty. The traditional white midsole has been used, while a translucent Night Maroon sole completes the theme.The shoe derives its nickname from the midsole and the plastic eyelets that feature black speckles on a Tech Grey base, giving them a cookies and cream-like appearance. These are available first come, first serve on Saturday morning, so set your alarms… they will sell out. Now if you’ll excuse me, I believe I have some cookies to eat.
This particular New Jordans 2017 is a limited edition colorway that both Tinker and Mark designed specifically for the event. Actually, they designed it without the knowledge of Jordan Brand. He said, “We though we’d have a little fun at Larry Miller’s expense – the president of Jordan Brand. As of right now this Galaxy inspired Air Jordan XXX “Cosmos” has yet to receive a release date, but the first Air Jordan XXX will debut on February 12th.MJ has said on multiple occasions that before he would take game-winning shots while with the Bulls, he would think back to this moment. It is a testament to the importance of that shot, that game, and that opponent, Georgetown, in the legend of Michael Jordan.
The Kids Jordan Shoes were last seen in 2008 as part of the 7/16 Countdown Pack, but now thanks to Jordan Brand’s new remastering program, this OG colorway is better than ever. The upper features white premium leather overlaid on grey nubuck with a red Jumpman on the ankle and a purple 23 in a red and black triangle on the heel. The red, neoprene mesh sock liner explodes into a frenzy of red, black, green, orange, and silver geometric shapes on the tongue. The all-white midsole is capped with an outsole that echoes the colors and patterns found on the tongue. Aside from the orange and green being obvious references to Bugs’ carrots, the shoe is further into our floppy-eared friend with the inclusion of a Bugs Bunny retro card imitating the iconic Jumpman pose.
