In 2002, Jordan Brand went back to the archives and re-issued the Air Jordan VII in a slew of colorways both new and old. But prior to the release of the Air Jordan Retros, we were hit with the Jordan TWO3 Relay – a lifestyle Moc build sneaker designed for ‘after game’ or ‘casual’ purposes like most of the Jordan Two3 releases of that era. The shoe features the bottom-end build of the Air Jordan VII but with a laceless, slip-on upper construction, so while the idea of an Air Jordan-inspired casual shoe sounded intriguing, that wasn’t so much the case because if anyone can remember that far back, these were under heavy, heavy markdowns (we’re talkin’ $20 a pop). Certainly one of those ‘forgettable’ models of the Jordan Brand lineage, but still worth looking back on, especially when these fresh images pop up. Did anyone own a pair of these? If you’ve never seen them before, would you rock something like this today? Photos: hupu
i bunch of jordan's in a low style would make a crazy proper shoe and not like them gourmet joints and not too cole hann-ish either.
these would make a crazy proper dress shoe like a oxford style with the Jordan bottom. just different material and leather laces. would kill them joints with a suit.
I remember these... I had them in all white.... And I only paid $35 for them.... The good old days lol
