For most kicks collectors, the 11 Lows aren’t anything new. They dropped many moons ago in several colorways, and even in two snakeskin pairs before JB put them on the backburner for a bit. Now, the comeback trail has started in the form of the Air Jordan 11 Low ‘Nightshade.’
As far as a green reptilian pair of kicks go, they’re pretty simple. There’s no actual texture to the toecap which is a bit of a letdown but the particular shade of green used is on point. Looks somewhat natural, comparatively speaking. A major selling point to me is the same blue-tinged sole on the kicks to preserve the iciness. Because rocking a pair of clean kicks with Post-It yellowed soles is not the business.
The Air Jordan 11 Low ‘Nightshade’ releases April 19th.
Update: Nike’s referring to these as the ‘Nightshade’ 11 Low – not green snakeskin, which we originally used. Assume the name’s taken from the color description of black, nightshade, white and volt ice.
