Introducing the Air Jordan 11 “Gentleman’s Game”: A Sneaker Concept for the Ages
Picture this: the elegance and timeless style of a classic gentleman’s wardrobe, translated into a sneaker. That’s exactly what the talented team at Nike has accomplished this year with their captivating collection of premium footwear. Drawing inspiration from the iconic Dunk Low and the timeless Air Force 1, they have used luxurious materials and exquisite detailing to capture the essence of vintage gentlemanly style. Corduroy, tweed, and wool, reminiscent of a bygone era, adorn these designs, allowing sneaker enthusiasts to indulge in plush, retro panache.
At Fortress Entertainment, we were already entranced by the Dunk Low and the AF1, currently gracing the shelves of Nike.com. But we couldn’t help but wonder, why not extend this concept to another of Nike’s celebrated designs? And so, the Air Jordan 11 “Gentleman’s Game” concept sneaker was born.
Our resident creative genius, Brandon Krige, spearheaded the stunning conceptualization of the Air Jordan 11. We enveloped it in the same shades of “Midnight Navy,” “Pale Ivory,” and “Ale Brown” that adorn its Nike counterparts – the Dunk Low and the AF1. Brandon’s stroke of brilliance was adding a dash of “Grey” into the mix, taking inspiration from the plaid fabric showcased on those aforementioned Nike models.
The lower half of our Air Jordan 11 “Gentleman’s Game” features a patent leather base in “Midnight Navy,” offering an iridescent and sophisticated aesthetic that elevates the shoe’s elegance. Corduroy fabric works its magic on the heel tab and lining, infusing the design with a harmonious and appealing display of texture. A pleasing blend of light and dark grey tones paints a plaid fabric picture on the shoe’s heel, while light grey suede adorns the tongue, mirroring the plaid’s lighter tones. The upper half of the shoe showcases a rich grey suede, embracing the essence of the plaid’s darker hues, to create a consistent and harmonious aesthetic.
Adding further depth to the design, rich “Baroque Brown” accents grace the lace tabs, bringing the embroidered Jumpman logo on the heel to life. Our vision includes an impression of the luxurious brown inside the shoe, with the iconic Jumpman resting gracefully on the heel. To complete the look, a “Pale Ivory” midsole and a gum rubber outsole introduce a gentle contrast to the overall palette. Crisp white laces provide a refreshing and clean finishing touch to the entire design.
While our Air Jordan 11 “Gentleman’s Game” remains a concept for now, we invite you to imagine for a moment if it were to become a reality. Picture the sophisticated, vintage aura it could bring to the Air Jordan golfing line. As golfers, you would have an exceptional style statement to grace the greens with. The meticulous detailing and distinct color fusion could potentially make it a prominent piece in the Air Jordan 11 golfing collection.
