A Detailed Look at the Upcoming Air Jordan XI ‘Gym Red’

It appears a ‘Gym Red’ colorway of the Air Jordan XI will be under the Christmas tree this holiday season.

This AJ XI is predominantly red — the laces, patent leather, mesh, and leather on the upper are all coming in red — which is somewhat reminiscent of Chris Paul’s AJ XI PE from a year ago. There are, however, hits of black by way of the Jumpman and ’23’ on the heel.

The all-red upper sits atop a white Phylon midsole with full-length Air and an icy blue outsole. The bottom of the sneaker features a black Jumpman on the carbon fiber spring plate while the traction pods are also done in red.

According to theillest, these should be releasing on December 9 for $220 at nike.com and local Nike retailers. They might also be available at local shoe stores such as Foot Locker, Finish Line, Eastbay, and more.

Are you planning on copping a pair of the AJ XIs in this colorway? Is this build a little too out there? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.

  1. Okay color way, would’ve preferred if they used a white jump man and 23 on the back rather than a black one just to give some pop but that’s just my preference. Also, the red looks a lot duller and doesn’t really stand out compared to CP3 PE’s as well as as other sneakers that utilize the gym red.

    1. I think they did that intentionally so that CP3’s would look better than the consumer version. That’s just my opinion though.

  2. This shoe is one big, huge NO for me. For me, this is an on court color makeup of this shoe. Those of us with really big feet can’t pull this off while off court..lolololol

  3. well they are a different kind of red 11s compared to the ones I have. I’m getting these because I love the red colorway and also having a different kind of red 11s as part of my casual wear rotation. my only concern is that I hope the cushion on these are not butchered.

    1. Considering JB’s (and the consumer’s) penchant for the XI’s, I’m sure they won’t. They can mess around with the leathers and materials, but as long as it’s comfortable, that’s all that matters. Also, if it wasn’t expensive AF.

      1. cost is not really an issue but rather supply of the mid 11s. I hate the raffle thing because it’s a load of B.S. people who know people would still get most of them and only about 1 or 3 people at varying sizes would fight over them. also, I hate resellers with a passion, they are scum.

  4. Dope if you like all red kicks. Being that all red kicks have been the hot thing since the Red October Yeezys, and add the fact that this is an Air Jordan 11, I predict this shoe to have a body count of about 6 nationwide. Too many hypebeast factors involved for people to be safe when this releases. #redshoeshidethebloodstains

      1. well there was a really old news about a person getting choked to death iirc for a pair of Jordans. the sad part about that news was that the shoe didn’t even fit the criminal’s size and threw away the shoes eventually. how sad and pathetic.

    1. They really need to be more consistent but I think because JB knows that if there’s an XI out on the Holidays that people will buy it, regardless of quality or inconsistencies.

      1. I rarely see any inconsistencies with the 11s other than differences in manufacturing process by plant. even the slightest inconsistencies would get you called out by morons that think they know more about the shoes.
