Air Jordan 2

The Air Jordan 2, Michael Jordan’s second signature shoe, is a polarizing Jordan Model. People either love them or hate them. 

The Air Jordan 2 first debuted in November 1986. The shoe was designed by Bruce Killgore and Peter Moore. It was conceived as a blend of luxury and on-court performance. The Air Jordan 2 features a rich leather upper, the excellent traction pattern of the Air Jordan 1, and incorporates a full-length air unit for cushion.

The Air Jordan 2 gets a ton of love when they’re a limited release, but the upcoming ‘Wing It’ version of the shoe will tell if people are actually into this beautifully designed sneaker or just into the hype.

Get Up Close and Personal with the Air Jordan 2 Retro ‘Radio Raheem’

These look amazing. Plain and simple. I’m a big fan of the Air Jordan 2 Retro, despite what everyone else thinks about the shoe. They’re comfortable and play well on-court. Remastering the AJ2 was a great idea though. This was the first luxury Air Jordan to ever release. Italian leather, hand crafted in Italy. C’mon, Jordan’s used to be so

Get an Official Look at the Air Jordan 2 Retro ‘Radio Raheem’

The Air Jordan 2 Retro is coming back, and in remastered form. This colorway pays homage to Radio Raheem, a character featured in that one Spike Lee joint that some of you may know — Do the Right Thing.

A White/Black Don C x Air Jordan 2 in the Works?

Perhaps it’s a sample, perhaps the next Don C x Air Jordan 2. Whatever it is, it’s flaunting a white quilted leather upper with black sidewalls and black on the tongue. Gold aglets are a plus. All white midsoles and outsoles keep things real fresh. Nothing is official yet, so let’s see what happens. Thoughts? Do you want these to

Air Jordan ‘Alternate’ Collection

The Air Jordan ‘Alternate Collection’ is my favorite of the upcoming 2016 lineup. The 5’s were a PE that never released and they’re not an MJ PE either. The tongue on them has been changed since the last time the low 5’s dropped, but they look better this way so I’m not mad. Those 4’s though…you cannot have those 4’s.

Air Jordan ‘Poster’ Collection

The Air Jordan ‘Poster Collection’ looks to bring two iconic Air Jordan posters to life in the form of sneakers.

Quilted leather, blue suede shoes. What’s not to like about the Just Don x Air Jordan 2? What was originally rumored to being a 30th anniversary sneaker is actually a collaboration with the luxury sportswear brand Just Don.

Jordan Brand looks like they’ll be beefing up the quality on a number of their models come 2015, and this Air Jordan 2 Retro made to celebrate the brand’s 30th anniversary is no exception.
