Detailed Look at the Off-White™ X Air Jordan 2 Low in Black
Virgil Abloh has managed to hijack the spotlight for June with his SS22 “Amen Break” runway show for Louis Vuitton, his bootleg-inspired Louis Vuitton Air Force 1s and the forthcoming drop of his Off-White™ X Air Jordan 2 Low collaborations, detailed look of which in its black and blue iteration has now surfaced.
A somewhat under-the-radar silhouette from the early days of Jordan Brand‘s Air Jordan line, the low-cut Air Jordan 2 served as an apt counterpart to its high-cut “big brother” by providing a sleek, crisp and luxurious look with pebbled and smooth leathers alike. Here, Abloh has retained all of that original flair but added some signature Off-White™ details like Helvetica text on the medial quarter and a large yellow ziptie attached to the punchy coral laces, themselves adorned with Helvetica hits.
The highlighting details of the shoe include, Michael Jordan‘s “signature” on the lateral midfoot in silver and the “crumbling” midsole, equipped with a trompe l’oeil print which makes it embody the essence of an unearthed artifact from 1986. Completing the look are the black and blue outsoles, blue details on the upper like a ball-and-wings tongue badge and exposed foam collars.
Early reports interpret the release date for the Off-White™ X Air Jordan 2 Low in black as September 23, though its pricing is yet to be determined.
