Air Jordan Retro 11 Low GS Citrus
Style Code: 580521-139
Release Date: June 20, 2015
Sneaker News features the Air Jordan 11 Retro Low “Citrus”, specially made for girls. One look and it is hard not to see why this Air Jordan 11 will appear to the feminine-sporty market.
The Jordan release date is set for June of this year as part of the Air Jordan’s 30th year celebration. The first time this particular design was released was back in April 2001 – that is more than 10 years of absence in the shelves.
Not much has changed from the original Citrus to this new one. The top leather portion is a neutral color with the shoelaces following the major color scheme of the shoes. The marking are also classic in design – no surprises there as Air Jordan goes for a clean, feminine look. Unlike other designs that combined three color choices, the Citrus only has two: white and citrus orange.
The outsole is what really makes this model stand out – a perfect translucent citrus orange that separates it from the rest of the shoe. The tongue features a citrus orange stamp of the Jumping Man and the same, smaller version of the logo can be detected at the back.
Workmanship and Quality
It goes without saying that the Nike brand is famous for their quality workmanship. Many are relying on this fact when it comes to the Air Jordan 11 Retro Low “Citrus”. Even though it is targeted for the female gender, Nike poured in the same amount of care and quality control on the model – which means that you can easily use this in the courts and enjoy a good game without worry.
Although the shoes were obviously made for girls, there are no stopping guys out there from buying this classic if they happen to like the design. Sizes will be available, ranging from 3 to 9.5 so there is a good chance you would find something that will fit.
Citrus is set to hit the shelves on the 20th of June, carrying a price tag of $120 USD. That is markedly cheaper than the other Air Jordan Remastered shoes out there so setting one in your budget should not be a problem. Considering how long it took for the shoes to be made again, it is best to grab one now – it might take another 10 years before Nike does another one! This is a general release so if you are planning to buy one, you should easily find a model in Nike stores.
