The Air Jordan 11 was designed by legendary Nike sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield during Michael Jordans' time playing baseball. As Jordan announced that he was returning back to the NBA, the timing of the Air Jordan 11's unveiling in 1995 could not have been more suitable. Even now, more than 25 years later, the Air Jordan is still seen on basketball courts, red carpets and sneaker conventions all over the world. Michael Jordan and Tinker were so ahead of their time that the design and performance of the Air Jordan 11 still hold up today. Every once in a while, you will still see NBA players wear them during major games.
