The seemingly endless school year has almost drawn to a close for high schoolers across the country and the blissful warm embrace of summer is set to follow right behind it … but there’s two very important events first: graduation ceremonies and proms. And really, what are those two memorable events without the proper footwear? Sneaker-loving kids (and adults) across the country have been swapping out their regular formal footwear for graduation ceremonies, proms, and other formal events, opting to wear stately sneakers instead of dress shoes with their suit or tuxedo. Luckily, the Air Jordan 11 “Prom Night” is arriving at the perfect time for those spring/summer formal situations.
Featuring a tonal black upper constructed of rich black suede sitting above the glossy black patent leather mudguard the 11 has become famous for, the shoe offers an aesthetic that offers both understated flash and outstanding formality. Black rope laces inspired by graduation cords and a metal Jumpman logo on the heel add extra premium touches, while a black midsole and icy blue outsole eerily reminiscent of 2013’s “Gamma” Jordan 11s complete the shoe’s stately look
