Sport is made to be debated. Fans can use advanced metrics or the proven eye test when making arguments. But there’s no denying that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts has the best sneaker collection in the NFL.
Earlier this week, the Eagles took their team jet to Miami for a preseason game against the Dolphins on Saturday night. As always, the Eagles social media team captured it all on camera, giving Hurts another opportunity to brag about his top-notch shoe game.
Hurts wore the Air Jordan 11 ‘Cool Grey’ basketball shoes. We will give you all the necessary information below. But the 24-year-old quarterback deserves a special mention for his memorable preseason adjustments.
Less than two weeks ago, we congratulated Hurts on his pre-match outfit. The Eagles QB1 walked to Lincoln Financial Field in a Permian Panthers jersey and a pair of Nike Dunk Lows in the ‘Panda’ colorway.
Air Jordan 11 ‘Cool Grey’
NBA legend Michael Jordan launched the Air Jordan 11 in 1995. Easily one of the most popular releases from Jordan’s signature line, the Air Jordan 11 features patent leather and rope laces. It was the perfect shoe for Jordan’s return to the NBA.
However, the ‘Cool Grey’ colorway didn’t make an appearance until 2001. At that time, Jordan was playing for the Washington Wizards, and Jordan Brand had started releasing their old signature shoes in new colorways.
The Air Jordan 11 ‘Cool Grey’ has been released several times over the years. The most recent was December 11, 2021, for $225. Now the average resale price for the classic hoop shoe is $315, according to StockX.
Clearly, Hurts is a man of culture. He showed a strong understanding of classic lifestyle and performance basketball shoes. If Hurts’ pre-game adjustments are any indication of how he’ll play on the court, then the Eagles are set for a great season.
