Historically, the Air Jordan 2 Low has been a more neglected proposition within #23’s eponymous signature sneaker series, but the silhouette has become an exciting offering over the last year.
Recently, Detroit’s Two 18 boutique was linked to a pair of the lifestyle-focused model, though the sneakers were initially incorrectly attributed to Travis Scott. The shoe abandons the faux “cracked” midsole and minimalist redesign seen on other collaborations in favor of a true-to-OG build clad in a premium mix of brown suede and leather, semi-translucent, icy blue midsoles and more. Burn Rubber’s sister boutique hasn’t disclosed any details behind its inaugural Air Jordan joint-effort, but the muted ensemble likely nods to some aspect of old Detroit. Red and blue accents contrast the smart shades of brown that dominate the retro, and appear behind a raven logo on the right sock-liner; left counterparts feature the map of some city, with Milan, Michigan potentially being referenced. In any case, Two 18’s low-top Air Jordan 2 will surely have a whole new audience not only coveting the once-overlooked sneaker, but also stopping by the shop’s 1400 E Fisher Service Dr. location when in the “Motor City.”
