I am happy to present the first Jordan 11 offering in the history of JBFcustoms today. I wanted to release my first pair for Christmas just because that seems to be when 11s traditionally come out.
This design was inspired by Holly, a plant that has been used to decorate for the Holiday season since before Christmas existed. It was considered to be a sacred plant by many societies through history - most of whom were enamored by the fact that Holly stayed green and held fruit through the winter while most everything around them was dying. This seemingly magical quality led people to believe it could be a source of Everlasting life and Fertility, so it became tradition to hang the boughs in homes during the winter months.
The theme is carried through the shoe with a special red and green foil elephant print mudguard contrasted by snow white pebbled leather, and trunk grey. The heel features a laser engraved illustration of a Holly Plant, and the collar is quilted with a red and green diamond print. Much of this hidden by a white leather zip-up shroud. I remember hearing about the AJ11 being meant to resemble a pair of spats, and I wanted to drum up that look even more with this version. Lined entirely with a Vegetable tanned Equine Leather which is buttersoft and supple. It truly has an incredible feel.
