As a sneakerhead, you probably remember Michael Jordan wearing the cool grey 11s during his post-Bulls times on the NBA court.
The game-changing ‘Cool Grey’ colorway debuted in 2001 and the Retro 11 Cool Grey made a much-awaited return in 2010. In 2021, Nike’s annual drop blessed us with another fresh pair of highly anticipated Air Jordan 11 Cool Grey sneakers—and they’re incredibly versatile.
As the name suggests, the Jordan 11 Cool Grey is covered in warm-toned shades of grey. The patent leather panel at the bottom of the shoe is classic Jordan 11 (one of the best Jordans of all time). On the mid panel, the sneaker features a lovely matte finished leather. The tongue feels great and the entire luxury sneaker is incredibly comfortable with a soft grey fabric lining the inside. Of course, the best feature of the shoe is its icy blue outsole.
If you’ve recently noticed your Instagram filled with people designing fashionable fits for their AJ11s, you might be wondering what to wear with your Cool Grey 11s. Below, we’ll fill you in on the best tips for styling the Air Jordan 11 Cool Grey like a pro.

How to lace Jordan 11’s
Air Jordan’s have many unique lacing styles, including crisscrossing, loose lacing, and the no bow-tie lacing style, it all just depends on your personal style and preference, though the most popular is the crisscrossing technique. You’ll begin lacing from the lowest eyelet on the right and making sure that both the ends are even, then insert the right end in the second left eyelet. Keep doing this technique so that the laces eventually criss-cross each other.
