Nike is inundating us with Jordan Brand models but don't let the flood of releases keep you from focusing on the key models like the Air Jordan 11Lab4 series, which pits one of the most beloved styles against patent leather in an "everybody wins" scenario.

This time, the oil-slick model gets decked out in University Red and it is absolutely covered in it from tongue to toe. The use of patent leather is ultimately the most interesting thing about this release as the play between the material, embossed branding and vac-tech all converge to give the shoe a futuristic feel.

The Air Jordan 11Lab4 University Red is set for a July 11 drop at $250 a pop and you'll be able to pick them up at retailers like Rock City Kicks if you get there early enough.
