Opinions have always been divided on the Air Jordan 2 silhouette in the sneaker community for a long time.
Celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2022, Jordan Brand tried to bring hype again on the second Jordan signature shoe with collaboration such as Off-White, J Balvin, A Ma Maniere, Maison Château Rouge, and Union LA.
Closing this year, the Air Jordan 2 returns in the OG 'Chicago' colorway.
Originally released in 1986, Nike wanted to do something different after the huge success of the Air Jordan 1 High.
Inspired by dress shoes, the Air Jordan 2 was designed by Peter Moore and Bruce Kilgore with the ambition to go beyond the basketball court.
This 2022 re-edition stays close to the original including
- Premium leather (Made in Italy back in the days)
- Faux lizard skin
- Sleek lines
- No swoosh
- OG Box design with the Air Jordan Wings logo on the top
The box also includes a booklet which describes the Nike-Air technology and all the strong points of the shoe.
About the sizing, it's true to size, so we recommend to get your regular Jordan/Nike size.
Quality is pretty much on point on these, and the comfort is quite good for a Jordan retro.
Already marked history in 1987, the Air Jordan 2 Retro 'Chicago' were on Michael Jordan's feet when he won the NBA All Star Dunk Contest that year.
If you are a fan of MJ, especially of the colorways he actually wore during his career, then this release will be a no brainer.
The Air Jordan 2 Retro 'Chicago' is set to drop on Friday December, 30th at a retail price of €199.99/£179.95/$200
It will also be available for the full family including Women's & Kids sizes.
