Air Jordan 2 Sneakers and Trainers | The Drop Date

The Air Jordan 2

This shoe was a precursor to the Air Jordan 1, which was released barely a year earlier and became an instant classic. In November 1986, it was released in stores.
It is regarded as one of the most divisive Jordan Brand sneaker styles in history, and no one can deny its significance in Michael Jordan's career in basketball.
By drastically altering the Air Jordan design after the original shoe's enormous success, Nike took a huge risk.
Due to its materials (designed to look more elegant), the Air Jordan 2 wasn't initially intended for basketball use.
The shoes were famously worn by Michael Jordan during the 1986 NBA playoffs despite early misgivings.

Air Jordan 2 Design

A full-grain leather upper inspired by Italian luxury shoes was used in the Air Jordan 2 to differentiate it from its predecessor, the Air Jordan 1. It also lacked the iconic Swoosh logo, resulting in a unique and controversial design.
In spite of the design change, the Air Jordan 2 retained the full-length Air cushioning unit for impact absorption.
