You can call me crazy if you want, but I just now fell in love with the infamous Air Jordan XI. Yes you read correctly…just now.
My mini-epiphany actually happened sometime last night to be specific. I was on the side line watching a pick up basketball game and a couple of people had pairs on the court. To be perfectly honest, one pair might have even been fake but regardless, seeing them in action last night made me say to myself, “Goddamn, that’s a gorgeous fucking shoe.” It automatically made me think of all the ridiculous XI Samples and PE’s I’ve held in my hands, and I instantly realized why they are so highly sought after.
It’s funny because everybody always has them as their #1 shoe, but that’s just not the case for me. I’ve always loved the I, III, IV, and above all—the XX3. The other game shoes were designs that I’ve only just “liked” to a certain extent. I can now add the XI to my “love list” of Air Jordans.
With that said, my quest for an XI high PE has now started. I’ve held numerous pairs in person, and they were all mighty fine to say the least. I can only imagine how elusive this journey is going to be, but I’ll come across a pair eventually (at least that’s what I like to tell myself.)
