The level of debate stirred by the Air Jordan II Max deems it one of the most controversial sneaker stories of the first quarter of 2011. This amalgam of ‘old’ and ‘new’ has coerced unique responses from Jordanheads, either in disbelief or in defense of this ‘hybrid’ shoe. The truth is, the Air Jordan Retro can only be stretched so far, and so new ideas of reinvention can only be expected from the brand that has set the bar so high for the last 2.5 decades. Visible 360-Max Air has never been done on a Jordan Brand shoe until last year, when the Jordan Take Flight was introduced; the finely tuned Air Max unit made specifically for basketball seemed to be the perfect add-on to the Air Jordan, which undoubtedly has crossed over to the lifestyle/fashion genre and has firmly established a nook. It’s supreme styling and the utmost in comfort – and somewhere in between is a bit of compromise between purists and the open-minded. We’ve got new images of the Air Jordan II Max after the jump, so take another look below and maybe you’ll see something you haven’t noticed before. via RMK.
