Despite 2023 being the 35th anniversary of the Air Jordan 3, the Air Jordan 2 remains a common silhouette in 2022 and 2023. The sneaker's story started in 1986 but has not always been popular. Its popularity was sparked by Virgil Abloh's Off-White x Nike Air Jordan 2 Low pack in 2021.

The History of the Air Jordan 2

After the Air Jordan 1, Nike wanted to create a shoe that had a more luxurious look. They wanted to achieve this with the Air Jordan 2, which came out in 1986. Nike's strategy was to create the most exclusive sneaker using materials of the highest quality.

The Air Jordan 2 was designed by Peter Moore and Bruce Kilgore. The first design had a premium leather upper made from imitation iguana skin, which added elegance. In addition, the sneaker was made in Italy, highlighting Nike's strategy. The design had lost the signature Swoosh on the side.

For the first time in the sport's history, high-end fashion was combined with basketball. It is therefore no surprise that Michael Jordan reached several milestones while wearing the Air Jordan 2.
