Given how divisive the Air Jordan 2 turned out to be, it’s likely many are ignorant of its origins. But with this upcoming “White/Fire Red” colorway, Jordan Brand is subliminally reminding us of the silhouette’s Italian roots.

Co-created by Bruce Kilgore and Peter Moore, the Air Jordan 2 was a luxurious and more sophisticated departure from its predecessor. And much like the sneaker itself — whose design was informed by the high quality craftsmanship standard in the country — the “White/Fire Red,” too, borrows inspiration from Italy. Here, the shoe mirrors the Italian flag, with hits of red and green applied throughout the shoe’s trims and accents. The base opts for a premium white leather, which complements the aged, yellowed finish of the heel clip and midsole.

Enjoy a closer look at the upcoming Air Jordan 2 “White/Fire Red” via the imagery ahead. According to previous reports, these are expected to release on November 18th, hitting select retailers as well as Nike SNKRS.
