Air Jordan XI Concords The high flyer has been wearing the highly sought after Js since last season. Here's what he told SLAMonline about them a few months back: “I think they’re lucky and honestly, I feel like I have so much support and so much grip. I’ve worn a lot of shoes, I love the Kobe Bryant shoes, but I just feel like these are more comfortable, and they’re just as light. They have more ankle support—and I mean, they’re Jordans. Sometimes I kind of feel like I’m Jordan with them on. [Laughs] I wish.”
