So what's all the hype? The Space Jam Air Jordan 11 was inspired by one of the biggest seasons in Chicago Bulls history in 1995. Michael Jordan and the Bulls went 72 - 10 that year and he named MVP four times for the Finals, regular season, the all-star game and his fourth NBA championship. They were designed by the famous tennis shoe maker Tinker, feature the “Space Jam” colorway and were worn by the legendary basketball player in the movie. So not only do they have a phenomenal story line behind their design, but they were MJ and Tinker's favorite shoe.
