Browsing the "Air Jordan II" Tag

AIR JORDAN II The Air Jordan II was released in 1986 as the second sneaker in Michael Jordan’s line with Nike. Like its predecessor the model was led by designers Bruce Kilgore and Peter Moore, this time coming with a much more unique creation that toned down the Swoosh branding quite a bit. The sneakers were famously originally produced in Italy, boasting fine leather construction for a more luxurious feel.

The “Night Shade” Air Jordan 2 has to be up there as far as the strangest versions of the sneaker that we’ve ever seen. They do a little bit of borrowing from another late 80s Nike shoe by means of a “Safari” print, and also feature some reflective piping the likes of which we’ve never seen on the shoes. To our knowledge there are only a handful of pairs out there, with one of them belonging to Jordan Brand athlete Chris Paul. Continue reading for another rare look at the shoes and then purchase this Air Jordan 2 yourself from 2legit2quit305 on eBay.

The Air Jordan 2 “Night Shade” sample that we saw earlier this month isn’t a one of one after all. They’re still super exclusive though, as the only people we know of who have the sneakers in their collections are sample hoarder Depeche23Mode and Jordan Brand superstar Chris Paul. The latter busted them out last night and in turn provided us with another rare look at the curious safari speckled Air Jordan 2. Remember that these were marked as a look-see sample for Summer 2014, so there’s still a tiny shimmer of hope as far as a release. See the photo after the break and stay tuned should more info arrive on this pair of retros.

There are more Air Jordan 2s to look forward to than just that Infrared/Cement version. This upcoming colorway for 2014 also does a bit of borrowing from later Air Jordans – you’ll notice the hefty bits of elephant used on the upper in place of the typical reptilian touch. Elsewhere the sneakers use a bit of blue in their blocking, with the total package sort of coming off as a “True Blue” tribute. Continue reading to see more on this upcoming Air Jordan 2 “Elephant Print” pair and remember that they’ll be releasing on May 10th, 2014.

What’s Left of the Original Air Jordans?

original air jordans 2014 Whats Left of the Original Air Jordans?

The idea of an un-retroed Air Jordan release was something that had sneakerheads salivating a few years ago. It still does, and perhaps to an even greater extent now, because there are even fewer remaining these days. Jordan Brand has given the people what we want and recently resurrected some of those long lost classics; highly anticipated drops like the ‘Powder Blue’ Air Jordan X and ‘Bordeaux’ VII leave the list of one-and-done originals shorter than at any point since the brand first dabbled in bringbacks back in 1994.

Air Jordan 2 “Night Shade” Sample

February 10th, 2014 by | 39 comments

air jordan 2 night shade sample 01 570x425 Air Jordan 2 Night Shade Sample
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.
