Adonis Johnson Michael B. Fly 3 featuring artwork from the series in The VI also had Sakuragi's number 10 embroidered on the side of the heels. This shoe introduced the huarache technology which allowed the shoes to better conform to the user's foot. A few things were no longer featured on the new model, such as the visible air sole, the Nike Air logo, and the translucent soles. This was the first Air-Jordan in the line that did not have any distinctive "Nike Air" on the outer portions of the shoe.
Various models of the Air Jordan VII were re-released in , again in , and again with different colors in Other colorways are confirmed for a release as well, such as the "Cardinals" which is a re-release and "Year of the Rabbits". The "Olympic" and "Charcoal" commonly referred to as Raptors were re-released in The eighth model of the Air Jordan was noticeably heavier than its predecessors.
This shoe had a lot more detail than most of the earlier Air Jordans such as two crossover straps on each shoe and a Jumpman. This shoe contains a full length air sole, polyurethane midsole, polycarbonate shank plate, and two crossover straps for added support and more custom fit. Jordan never played an NBA season wearing these shoes. This model was inspired by baseball cleats that Jordan wore when playing minor-league baseball. The sole featured different symbols and languages of different countries.
In popular culture, in the children's movie The Little Rascals one of the bullies, Butch is wearing a pair of these shoes. It was the first Air Jordan to feature a lightweight Phylon midsole.

This model was designed by Tinker Hatfield. When the shoe launched, Michael Jordan retired from basketball by then was with the Birmingham Barons in baseball's minor baseball leagues. Hatfield designed the sneaker waiting for Jordan to come back and hoping he would play in them.
The ballistic mesh upper of the sneaker was meant to make the Air Jordan XI lighter and more durable than past sneakers. Further changes came with the use of a carbon fiber spring plate in the translucent "frosty" outsole, giving the shoe better torque when twisting on the court.
The highlight and arguably best-known aspect of the shoe is its patent leather mudguard. Patent leather was lightweight compared to genuine leather and also tended not to stretch as much — a property to help keep the foot within the bounds of the foot bed during directional changes on the court.
The patent leather gave the XI a "formal" look. When this shoe released, some wore this model with business suits instead of dress shoes. The sneakers were only samples in when Jordan decided to come back to the NBA. Hatfield and Nike discouraged Jordan from playing in them, but once they were produced, he couldn't resist. Also noteworthy, Jordan violated league dress code by wearing the shoes, as his teammates wore all-black shoes.
It wasn't the first time Jordan had run afoul of NBA footwear rules, having broken them with his very first signature shoe in The colorway was changed for the public release because the concord purple had looked like royal blue on television.

Though not as light weight as previous models, the construction and firmness of the shoe is widely considered to be the most durable and sturdy shoes from the Air Jordan line.

In theory, this allowed for a shoe without laces, because the sleeving does not stretch. Nonetheless, the Air Jordan XI X model did include a set of laces behind the sleeve to better secure the shoe. They are the lightest Air Jordans ever made. The Air Jordan XX was also inspired by bicycling shoes. The strap was placed in the center of the shoe over the laces.
