To mark the release of the new Air Jordan 11 “Gratitude” END. tapped Kennington rapper Blanco, spending the day with him in his home suburb, delving into the importance of self-expression and forging your own creative path.
Regularly citing his formative years growing up in Kennington and visiting his local youth club, Alford House, as the necessary building blocks for his rap career and pursuit of self-expression, it was this very space where Blanco would experiment and refine his sound, giving him the self-belief needed to go against the grain and pursue his dreams as a full-time artist. In light of this, and to mark the launch of the Air Jordan 11 ‘Gratitude’, END. spent the day with Blanco in his home suburb of Kennington, taking things back to where it all started and shining a light on the importance of forging your own path.
Celebrating a heritage colourway, the classic Air Jordan 11 ‘Gratitude’ honours Michael Jordan’s legacy while elevating the materials for those pushing culture to new heights. The upper is designed with a mix of premium materials like luxe leather, along with a smooth knit collar. The glossy patent leather mudguard gleams just like the original. A tinted translucent outsole offers a clean finish while the welded gold Jumpman radiates the shoe’s championship roots.
