It’s not a widely known fact that the Air Jordan Low actually began when the Air Jordan started. The Air Jordan II was also an original pioneer of the low-top, but from III up until the XI the low-top didn’t return – and it’s no coincidence that the AJ3 is when Tinker Hatfield took over. The Air Jordan II with its Italian boot inspiration exudes the most ‘dress shoe’ impression among all the Air Jordans in history, with the croc-skin upper, perforations, and sleek piping along the upper. A low-top seemed fitting for the model, and thus the Air Jordan II Low happened rather seamlessly and its clear that the transition from Mid to Low was rather easy. This 2004 release introduced a new color scheme to the restricted Air Jordan II, bringing some Tar Heel flavor with the Midnight Navy/University Blue colorway. At $100, this Air Jordan Retro Low was rather popular during its initial release in late 2004, and like many of the Air Jordans from the pre-2005 era, is tough to find in deadstock condition. Your thoughts on our Classics Revisited selection for the night?
