First Look At The UNION LA x Air Jordan 2 “Rattan”

First Look At The UNION LA x Air Jordan 2 “Rattan”

First teased in late October, UNION Los Angeles‘ impending Air Jordan 2 collaboration has recently appeared in both official and unofficial images. The former has already confirmed the launch of a “Grey Fog” colorway, while unauthorized in-hand shots suggest the accompanying “Rattan” option is also on pace to release during the 2021 holiday season.

Akin to its collaborative co-star, the newly-surfaced pair differs in color-blocking than was depicted on initial mock-ups. A mix of high-quality suede and canvas make up the bulk of the retro’s upper, with “Rattan” and “Beach” covering everything from mudguard to spine. Hits of “Orange Peel” and “Siren Red” participate in Chris Gibbs and company’s interpretation of the second-ever Air Jordan model, but only play supporting roles at the profiles and collar. Now-signature “UN/LA” tags mark their territory on the lateral sidewall, while perforations around the heel paneling introduce the California-based label’s new design D.N.A. Manufacturing-like labels are stitched onto the lateral collar, boasting an “HO21” text that establishes a Holiday 2021 drop (if logistical issues are sorted out). Underfoot, sole units match the aforementioned label as they indulge in an off-white yellow that surely contributes to the Jordan 2‘s yet-to-be-disclosed backstory.

Enjoy the best look yet at the pair here below, and anticipate a Nike SNKRS launch soon.

For confirmed release dates, check out the “Cool Grey” 11 set to return for the whole family on December 11th.
