jordan Air Jordan 2 Retro Low
material: synthetix/textile

First released in November 1986, the AIR JORDAN 2 had a rough time. Not only was he the successor of the AJ1, Jordan himself just came back from a difficult injury. Already in the third game of the 85/86 season the Bulls saw themself lose their main man with a broken foot, making him miss 64 games. Even though he returned before the regular season ended, he couldn't survive the first round of the playoffs – losing to the future champions, the Celtics. Therefore a new beginning was bound to take place. Made out of a high-quality leather upper, the Air Jordan started to transition towards fashion and even decided to go without the iconic Nike swoosh. Instead, the second coming granted the popular Wings emblem a unique place on the tongue's highest point. Due to Michael's foot injury Nike designer Bruce Kilgore made sure an enhanced wearing comfort was ensured. For that reason the Nike Air-unit received more space to operate, combined with the high-top design stability had been achieved. With 'His Airness' only being the second player ever to score over 3000 points – Wilt Chamberlain being the first – in a single season, the shoes definitely played a big part. Furthermore he even won the Slam Dunk Contest in 1987. Some season, isn't it? 37.1 points per game combined with being the best dunker in the NBA – that's vintage MJ for you.

Nevertheless the AJ2 is still regarded as a underdog in between the Jordan collection. Maybe because the second version of the original Air Jordan Low has been available in merely two different colorways. But that's uncertain. However it is certain that the sneaker is celebrating its comeback. Resembling one of the initial AJ2s almost right down to the last detail, the AIR JORDAN 2 RETRO LOW UNC pays tribute to Michael Jordan's roots – especially his college-time at 'his' University of North Carolina. MJ sure knows how to reminisce!Therefore the sneaker turns into a walking UNC homage and wears its colors proudly: a white upper combined with navy and university blue accents – fitting isn't it?

Brand information: jordan

In the game of basketball Michael Jordan is a god. Number 23 of the Chicago Bulls has set the bar extremely high: His six championship rings, five mvp`s, numerous scoring titles, not to mention his on-court heroics and breathtaking dunks, are the stuff legends are made of. The Jordan Brand aspires to achieve boss status as well. And it is well on its way.
In Jordan`s rookie campaign, it didn`t take the basketball world long to realize who they were dealing with. He was not only a fascinating athlete, his charismatic smile and pleasant personality cast a spell over people – Michael Jordan had perfect commercial appeal. Nike recognized that as well. The brand needed a kick-starter and got a rocket boost in Jordan.
While the Air Jordan 1 and 2 sold well – and vaulted Nike from middle of the pack to the top of the sneaker world – the Air Jordan 3 went supersonic. Thanks to new head designer Tinker Hatfield the sneaker has become a legend in its own right. The jumpman logo was introduced with the 3, as well as a visible air cushion in its sole. Experts call the 3 the best basketball sneaker ever made, even to this day. A whole line of legendary commercials starring famous director Spike Lee as Mars Blackmon („It`s gotta be the shoes“) made the hype complete.

Air Jordan – from hype to frenzy

In the 90s the hype evolved into a frenzy: Michael Jordan shattered records, was feared by opponents on the court and charmed fans off of it. MJ became more famous than the Beatles and the president combined and people went crazy over his signature sneakers. To this day, the madness continues: When a new Jordan is released – no matter if re-release, retro or special edition – fans of the Jordan Brand camp out in front of sneaker stores for days. The shoes are sold out in seconds and are later sold online for crazy rates.
The Jordan Brand has become so large that Nike decided to make it its own sub-division. In 1997 the time had come: The Air Jordan 18 was the first independent release of the Jordan Brand, the rest is history …
