When Michael Jordan came back to the NBA after a stint playing baseball, he could be found wearing the Air Jordan 11. Overall, this immediately became one of the most legendary silhouettes of all time. Fans were enamored by this sneaker, and it is easy to see why. The silhouette was made with dress shoes in mind. Tinker Hatfield loved the idea of incorporating patent leather, and it turned out to be a great decision. Now, the Jordan 11 remains one of the greatest shoes in the Jumpman arsenal.
Every single year, we get two special Air Jordan 11 releases. The first release is meant to be a women's exclusive. Secondly, we get a general release closer to Christmas in all sizes. For 2023, the general release is going to be a retro of the Air Jordan 11 "DMP." As for the women's exclusive color scheme, we are getting an incredible shoe that will pay homage to a polarizing ice cream flavor. Yes, that is correct, Neapolitan ice cream is coming to the Jordan 11.

Thanks to the Instagram sneaker insiders @sneakerfiles and @zsneakerheadz, we have a photoshop rendering of what this Jordan 11 is going to look like. Based on everything we have seen, this shoe definitely fits the theme quite perfectly. Firstly, we begin with white on the top, which is good for the vanilla aspect. Secondly, chocolate is represented by brown patent leather that goes around the midfoot and toe box. Lastly, pink can be found on the back heel and even the tongue. Overall, this makes for a truly amazing sneaker that will surprise a lot of people.
If you are not a fan of the Air Jordan 11, then these will likely not be for you. However, if you are someone who likes eclectic shoes that have a special theme, then you most definitely need to grab these.
