Additionally, Jordan Brand recently another Air Jordan 11 colorway nicknamed “Gym Red” after the hue that covers its uppers entirely, while it is equipped with clean White-colored midsoles and translucent outsoles. The Air Jordan 11 “Midnight Navy” seen above was also unveiled recently.

The sneaker also features additional Midnight Navy- and University Blue-colored detailing like the “Jumpman” branding near the ankles. Finally, it is also has a combination of plain White-colored midsoles and icy, translucent outsoles.
