The Air Jordan 11 IE Low that Chris Paul wore this week is getting a retail release.
The black/red sneaker is a close match to the original "Referee" Jordan 11 Low, but there are some things that set it apart. The red looks brighter on the 2015 retail release, the leather on the tongue isn't as textured, and the overlay piece on the upper is suede instead of the original nubuck.
With that being said, don't be surprised when people start calling the shoe the "Referee" Jordan 11 anyway.
Watch for this Air Jordan 11 Retro Low IE to release on Sept. 26.
