The “Radio Raheem” Air Jordan 2 led the way for the second Air Jordan’s comeback in 2016, and up next is the colorway we see here: the “Alternate” concept in black and red. Designed as a colorway that wasn’t, but could have been an original, the “alternate” road edition features a predominantly black upper red accents for the classic “Bred” color scheme. Looking at these now, many would agree that it’s a shame they never actually dropped back in 1987. Is this actually one of the best non-OG colorways for the AJ2 ever? Take another look here and keep in mind that they’ll be hitting the market on February 6th at stores like Deadstock. Can’t wait? Grab a pair right now on eBay.
