When the Air Jordan 2 debuted in 1986, it was the first sneaker to bring luxury detail to a peak sport performance silhouette. Made in Italy, original pairs featured a premium look and feel that quickly earned them an iconic spot in Air Jordan history.
Abloh’s creative spark began with a question: If an Air Jordan 2 was pulled directly from a time capsule, what would it look like? So, for the first time in Nike’s history, a sneaker was reverse-engineered from an original pair in the DNA Archive using three-dimensional scans of an exact pair Michael Jordan had laced up.
The design process yielded unique results: because no two sneakers crumble the same way, the left and right pair of each Air Jordan 2 x Off-White™ has a different cracked midsole for accurate representation.
Adorned with an Off-White™ cable tie, each pair features Michael Jordan’s signature printed in a different place, recalling how he’d sign his own pairs and give them away to kids after games.
Offered in two colourways “White/Varsity Red” and “Black/Varsity Royal”.
