Browsing the "Air Jordan II" Tag

saint laurent jordan 1 A History of Luxury Sneaker Copycats

Yesterday, news broke that New Balance is suing Karl Lagerfeld over a sneaker being sold by the German fashion designer that features an awfully NB-looking shape, complete with an “K” across the side in place of the usual “N”. That sort of appropriation is nothing new in terms of luxury brands though, and there are plenty of other pairs on the market that owe varying degrees of their DNA to more pedestrian sneaker designs. Legal activity in this realm isn’t an entirely new thing either – Jordan Brand previously chased down Gourmet for their tributes and even New Balance had previous a win in this category following their settlement with Louis Vuitton over a 574 ripoff from 2009.

best air jordan 2s Made in 86: The 10 Best Air Jordan II Releases in History

The Air Jordan line is all about evolution, but there was potential for it to come to a complete stop at the Air Jordan II. Arguably the most overlooked of the heralded Chicago Bulls era of MJ’s Nike sneakers, the Air Jordan II could have forced a parallel universe of sorts; prior to signing a sneaker deal, the then young MJ was very keen to adidas and it appeared that the German brand had decisive leverage in the Jordan sweepstakes. But Michael, who took his parent’s opinions to heart, chose the Beaverton brand at the direction of his father and the Air Jordan was born. However, it seemed that Michael wasn’t particularly happy with the direction of his shoes after two completed models, and the Bulls superstar was ready to fulfill his original decision. Because of this interesting tidbit of info in the Air Jordan timeline, the AJ2 is sometimes seen as a black sheep of sorts; it was particularly under-appreciated by the man himself, and more importantly, it could have been the sneaker to end the Nike Air Jordan line for good.
