The Air Jordan 2 has had a prolonged moment in the spotlight, a feat that was put into motion thanks to an Off-White collaboration in late 2021. And while the end of 2022 is still months away, rumors of a “Sunset Haze” style of the model’s Craft version have recently surfaced.
Akin to Craft iterations of classic Nike Sportswear offerings, the newly-surfaced retro is expected to indulge in a higher-than-usual mix of materials across its upper and sole unit. The majority of the second Air Jordan‘s top-half is believed to boast a clean “Sail” look that sets the stage for darker “Sunset Haze” and “Desert” tones, the former animating the scale-like pattern wrapped around the sneaker’s mid-foot and heel. Branding on the tongue opts for a brown makeover as do the inner-lining and spines, while structural components around the heel and midsoles favor an “aged” aesthetic reminiscent of the shoes referenced by the late Virgil Abloh for last year’s Air Jordan 2 Low duo.
Enjoy a look at an extremely early mock-up of the pair ahead, courtesy of Instagram accounts @zSneakerHeadz and @SneakerFiles, as you wait for official Nike SNKRS launch details as 2023 gets underway.
