Original Release: 1996

The ultimate Air Jordan for the ultimate time in the ultimate season. Make no mistake, the Air Jordan XI was a weapon, and Michael Jordan was surgical with that bitch. The all-black upper indicated it was winnin' time, and the translucent red outsole was all defenders saw as he slashed to the rim again and again. The Concords may have shown off the design best, but the black/red XIs represented all Michael and the Bulls stood for.
