Nightshade is a dark teal color used sufficiently infrequently that when Jordan Brand dropped their ‘Nightshade Pack’ last October, most would have compared it to the new Gamma Blue or some such other wide rollout for a brand new shade. It turns out that set from the Jumpman might have been originally intended to be even larger, as today we get a first look at an Air Jordan II sample that would have fit right in. These have an edge in expressiveness over the other Nightshade Jordans thanks to the Safari print detailing, reflective 3M piping and speckles on the laces and midsole, and also pick up select neon yellow hits for a nice contrast. Click in to see some more angles on this rare (as yet) unreleased Jordan 2 sample, then keep your eyes on the ‘bay because the first auction went unsold and they might be relisted by depeche23mode on eBay.
@sneakernews oh je kiff c trop cool
@sneakernews they aight
@Leneil14 those are too ill.
@sneakernews looks like a BHM 2013
@sneakernews not sure if strange is the word
@sneakernews these are dope, not too many aj2's I don't like so I'm partial, nice contrasts & use of textures
Wow, Nike always comes up with something better every time! My younger bro is a Jordan shoes fan so I think it would be a great idea to gift my bro a pair of these shoes too!
@sneakernews still better than Jordan 28's
@sneakernews looks like squadron 2's lol
@sneakernews I like them.
@sneakernews deffently not a big II fan one of the only original 13 I don't like
Looks like. Jordan 2. "Seattle Championship" shoe.
Nice, better than that infrared shit. Just retro and drop the DB2's.
All I care for as far as 2's...
These were in a photo I believe Darnell Dockett tweeted out the other day. I had never seen them before.
@REHAB_ those infrared joints are fire! I didn't like em at first but I'm obsessed now lol but this colorway is dickkkk
@WhatWouldRoyaDo i like the infrareds but not enough to get em lol
@REHAB_ (maybe not the carmine 6s bc I think I love them)
@REHAB_ oh. Nah I don't like 6s too much on my feet and they're being so hyped up anyway I'm over em lol
@WhatWouldRoyaDo i was referring to the 6s lola
@REHAB_ infrared 2s? Yeah idk. They're more infrared than the infrared 6s lol the 6s are coral colored
