With the re-release of the Air Jordan 11 ‘Cool Grey’ and the debut of the Air Jordan 11 ‘Black & White’ for the 2021 Holiday Season, DTLR and Jordan Brand seized a unique opportunity to celebrate the legacy of the silhouette in an unexpected way. DTLR and Jordan return to Washington D.C. where the two brands will collaborate on an art exhibition pop-up experience inspired by the Air Jordan 11.
The Air Jordan 11 is not just a shoe — it’s a symbol of greatness and style first worn by MJ in 2001 during a Washington Wizards game. Today the shoe is worn by game-changers and change-makers, the Air Jordan 11 has been a catalyst for unexpected creativity. The women who rock it have kept this legacy going in spectacular fashion. They are visionaries who excel across mediums, from sports to art and dance. With the help of Arena Social Arts Club, we asked four women in D.C. to create original art inspired by the Air Jordan 11 ‘Cool Grey.’ Lex Marie, Dyymond Whipper-Young, Anisha Murdock and Keiona Clark will channel their own creativity inspired by the Air Jordan 11 using the ‘Cool Grey’ or ‘Black & White’ as a muse to create unexpected works of art.
