With Nike officially confirming the Air Jordan 11 “Bred” as this year’s big Jordan Brand holiday release, anticipation is growing ahead of the December 14 drop date. This year’s Air Jordan 11 is supposed to most closely resemble the OG from 1995, which Michael Jordan wore en route to winning his fourth NBA championship overall and the first after retiring to play Minor League Baseball in 1993.

The patent leather cut is much higher and more representative of the OG design, while the remastered leather and construction give the shoe a more premium feel in comparison to some of the older retros. This, alongside the fact that black and red is one of the Jordan line’s most iconic colorways, has sneakerheads salivating at the thought of getting their hands on a pair next month.

The Nike Air Jordan 11 being repurposed as a lifestyle shoe poses the challenge of styling it in a non-sportswear outfit. Of course, you can always go the route of keeping it simple, with a pair of track pants or skinny jeans and a matching top but we’re here to show you that there are more exciting things you can pair with a shoe like the Nike Air Jordan 11.

What to style with the Nike Air Jordan 11 “Bred”:

Pants:

As most sneakerheads dress from the ground up, we’re going to do the same. The Air Jordan 11 being a high-top shoe and one that hugs the ankle tightly, it can sometimes be difficult to find pants that go well with the sneaker. While your first reaction might be to find pants that sit snugly just at the ankle collar, why not try out some looser-fitting pants such as the options below?

Tees and coats:

Gone are the days of buying a matching Nike T-Shirt when you pick up the latest retro Jordans. Nowadays, it’s commonplace to match high-end brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren or technical-focused labels such as Snow Peak with sportswear sneakers. Our selection below includes the likes of Heron Preston, Stussy, and Levis, and doesn’t lean too heavily on trying to color-match your outfit to your kicks, instead opting for more muted, fall-ready staples like brown fleece jackets and monochrome oversized shirts.

Accessories:

Who doesn’t like to accessorize just a little bit? To finish off your look, consider a chest rig such as the one from Stone Island below, or maybe a bag to throw over your shoulder. You can afford to add a bit of technical performance flair to the outfit with your choice in accessories. This allows you to come full circle and complement the Nike Air Jordan 11 nicely.
