The AJ 2 holds a slightly awkward position in the Jordan canon; a grail to some, an ugly mistake in an otherwise glorious streak of designs to others – at least it gets people talking. It was significant for being the first Jordan to ditch the Swoosh and for being made in Italy, and after a few years M.I.A. it returns in a new 'infrared/cement' colourway. Cement speckle dust covers the toebox and ankle collar panels, while the middle of the shoe is blacked-out with hot red accents, which spread and takeover the heel tab and the massive Air Jordan tongue logo. You feeling it? Has absence made the heart grow fonder? If so, you can nab these Saturday week, April 12 or get a pre-release pair at Soleawesome or Solefood NY.
