Early this morning Jordan Brand unveiled some of their upcoming retros for Spring 2016, with a number of brand new colorways for a few celebrated models. Arguably none of the new offerings are more intriguing than the “Poster Collection” which we’re here to look at today, featuring The Air Jordan 2 Retro and Air Jordan 12 Retro in color-ups inspired by each shoe’s respective ad campaign. First is the Air Jordan 2, inspired by the original black and white print ad for the shoe from 1987, emblazoned with the statement “WING IT.” picturing a close-up shot of MJ’s kicks. The “Poster” Air Jordan 2 Retro features the same black and white color palette as the ad, with exotic croc-textured leather and “WING IT.” displayed on the heels. 1997’s “The Master” poster inspires the “Poster” Air Jordan 12, also featuring the same color palette as the original graphic in black leather, with white, and gold accents. Enjoy this first look at the Air Jordan “Poster Collection”, and stay tuned for official release information when it’s announced.
