Year Released: 1996

The Air Jordan XI is known by people who aren't even into sneakers for its patent leather uppers. For those in the know (ok, maybe those too cheap is more like it), the low-cut sibling of the Air Jordan XI, the IE, was a shot at all things Jordan XI without the shine. The IE had the patent swapped out for a more traditional (at the time) elephant print upper. Even after a retro run in 2003 that gave 'heads a second chance at these, most of you still slept on 'em.
