Michael Jordan won his first NBA Slam Dunk competition using seemingly effortless aerial maneuvers and a cool, calm, and collected demeanor. The Air Jordan II was the shoe Jordan wore during his first Dunk Contest win, and this new colorway of the numero dos is as “cool” as you can get; the university blue nubuck upper, black midsole, and of course the translucent “ice” sole – an Air Jordan II first – completes the aura. Also new on the Air Jordan II is the heeltab; once inhabited by a NIKE label (seen on the previous retro), an updated Jordan branding is now seen in its place. This Air Jordan II Retro is slated for an official release of July 31st but have begun to pop up at overseas shops like Streething, so check out the extra details after the jump and Sneaker News will let you know when these start popping up in stateside shops.
Color: University Blue/Black
