in 2000, i picked up a pair of size 13 elevens. i remember when they came out… i was not that much of a fan of them and they grew on me and now i just love them. they were in the movie space jam.
i’ve played basketball in them inside and i honestly can’t believe i’ve had them for 17 years. wtf.
these were released in 1995. created by Tinker Hatfield and he wanted to use materials not used in any basketball shoes. in 1995 they retailed for $124.99 back in the day. in 2000, i picked them up for two hundred bones. when money started the season after coming back at the end of the 95 playoffs, the bulls went 72-10 with J in the 11’s. J won the championship on Father’s Day one year after his father was taken from him. this shoe was his comeback shoe and sealed his second three-peat.
