J Balvin Teases Glow-in-the-Dark Air Jordan 2

The Jordan Brand continue to throw their weight behind the Air Jordan 2 for its upcoming 35th anniversary, as seen in the recent link-up with hype man Virgil Abloh and Chris Gibbs Union LA. The next collaborator to step up to the plate? The ‘Prince of Reggaeton’ J Balvin!

This release comes in as Balvin's sophomore sneaker collaboration – with the glow-in-the-dark Air Jordan 2 initially teased back in September, both the soles and Wings logo on the tongue emanating an eye-catching green glow. While the images we have on-hand are still low-res, it looks like we can expect padded collars and mid-foot panels for the AJ2, a significant departure from the leather base layers we’ve come to expect from the silhouette.

A one of the Jumpman’s freshly-minted collaborators, Balvin became the first Latino artist with his Air Jordan 1 collaboration in 2020, the singer taking aesthetic cues from his two albums Vibras (2018) and Colores (2020).

There's no official word on a release date as of yet, but we can expect the J Balvin x Air Jordan 2 to arrive during the early stages of 2022.
