First Look at the Jordan Rising High 2

The Jordan Rising High 2 has surfaced in three colorways and not much has changed apart from the upper. We won’t know if that’s good or bad until the new shoe hits the hardwood.

Mesh replaces the synthetics that were found on the original and there is one extra eyelet that features Flywire; the originals had three and these have four. There are also fuse overlays to add some structural support and prevent the material from tearing. A synthetic leather panel will add some lateral support to the shoe as the mesh likely wouldn’t do so by itself.

The midsole is the exact same; Phylon with Unlocked forefoot Zoom. We’ll have to wait for more images to make a judgement on the traction, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that remains the same as well. Not much has changed from an aesthetic viewpoint either except a beefed up Jumpman logo.

  1. Not a bad looking team model to me. I won’t get them but hopefully those who do won’t be disappointed. Not bad at all.

  2. All the Nike budget models, the KD Trey, and this seem to be using the same mesh-looking upper. I hope its a little more maleable than straight hyperfuse. I’m pretty sick of full-upper hyperfuse shoes at this point- they always seems to flexes awkwardly and uncomfortably at the crease point.

    1. Yah. Same mesh upper and reused tooling. Nike’s getting lazy but when it aint broke, don’t fix it. They’re getting conservative after their J 30 traction faux pas.
