Fans of the Air Jordan 11 have been waiting for a triple black colorway for a long time. Finally, rumors earlier this year alleged that Jordan would be dropping one in 2018. Now, we have an official look at the”Cap & Gown” Jordan 11.

The Air Jordan 11 is a tried and true classic. Originally released late in 1995, Mike’s 11th shoe signaled his return to the NBA after a brief personal hiatus. Michael turned the Jordan 11 into a whole new beast with his play that year. While a good amount of the 11’s appeal comes from its sleek and luxurious look, the shoe’s history is rooted in epic on-court performances from Mike himself.

The Air Jordan 11 is known for its ability to be stylistically flexible. The silhouette looks good on the court, casually, or even dressed up with a suit. The latter can be attributed to the 11’s use of patent leather, which is typically reserved for dress shoes. Finally, after a sample pair appeared over 7 years ago, Jordan Brand will release an all-black iteration of every teenager’s favorite Prom flex. The new “Cap & Gown” colorway of the Air Jordan 11 pays homage to the sneakers versatility, with this triple black pair prepared especially for graduation with its tassle-like laces and metal Jumpman branding.


The black-tie ready Air Jordan 11 will release on May 26th, 2018. The all-new “Cap & Gown” colorway has fluctuated in price, though it now appears that the original $250 price tag is final. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Jordan release dates.
