Second, most popular doesn't = hardest to find. It's the exact opposite.

When I go to the store to buy shoes that are limited releases (ie: Jordans. each store only gets 2 pairs) they are very difficult to find.

Quality wise, they were garbage compared to the 12's (which were TANKS)

People like them for their look.

They're just sleak, clean and classy looking.

And the fact that they fall apart so soon and are hard to clean kind of add to their image connoting wealth. The person wearing them can afford to spend a lot of money on a goodlooking shoe they may not even wear that long and will cop another pair to replace it.

Yeah, and they probably have 0 size 17s. That doesn't mean 17s are more popular than 11s.

There's a reason why samples are made in size 9. Stay in your lane homeboy.

Yes, we all fantasize the perfect male physique with our damn foot and shoe fetish.

You could have easily posted a picture of Orlando's uniform.

Th AJ 11 was more than durable for me. And the upper light weight, albeit sturdy mesh was not difficult to clean for me. I liked the 12s, but I wasn't a fan of the weight of the shoe (much like the 8s) ... the 11s were so light, so durable, so sexy an instant legendary shoe much like the AJ I, and AJ III.

The AJ 11 re-invigorated the sneaker community. It's influence can still be seen to this day. Hell, it's more than obviously LeBron's favorite sneaker. He's had 3 or 4 different models that all took exact design elements from it. Or in some cases, literally were a rip off of it

Speaking of LeBron's. My favorites

Nike Zoom LeBron 2 (white / navy)
Nike Zoom LeBron 7 Playoffs (white / concord) AJ XI inspired
Nike Air Max LeBron 9 (Scarface / Freegums)
Nike Air Max LeBron 10 (Team USA edition)
