Air Jordan 2 Retro 'Alternate'

After the huge success of the Air Jordan 1, designer Peter Moore broke all the rules, and rock the sneaker world with the Air Jordan 2. Feeling design was more important than branding, Moore made the risky move of leaving the Swoosh branding off the sneaker entirely.

The AJ 2 was the only Jordan made in Italy, which along with the faux snakeskin on the upper and the design inspired by a women’s boot brought the silhouette into the luxury sportswear arena. This along with the Jordan’s huge popularity justified the $105 price tag.

Unlike the AJ 1 which dropped in many different colorways, the Air Jordan 2 was only released in a few colorways during its first run. Jordan won his first Slam Dunk Contest in the AJ 2, and he earned his first scoring title. Michael Jordan was the first player since Wilt Chamberlain to score over 3,000 point in single season averaging 37.1 points per game. This silhouette like its predecessor was popular on and off the court, though it isn’t retroed often.

The Jordan Brand is dropping another alternate player exclusive, and this time it is on the Air Jordan 2. The majority of the sneaker is black leather include the snakeskin side panels and the midsole. This new colorway is accented with red on the piping, lace eyelets, Jordan branding, heel, and portions of the outsole. If you want what could have been a player exclusive in Chicago Bulls colors, then this sneaker is for you.
