Will the Air Jordan 2 be the ‘NEW’ Nike Dunk?
With the Dunk now out of fashion, Hyperbeasts are looking for the next silhouette to focus on. Nike, for its part, has already set to work on what will be the next most popular model on the market.
The choice seems to have fallen on the Air Jordan 2, perhaps one of the most underrated trainers in the Jordan line, which has always split the market in half: those who feel it has been unfairly mistreated and those, on the other hand, who feel it has never surpassed the greatness of the Air Jordan 1.
Designed by Peter Moore and Bruce Kilgore in 1986, its first release literally caused a stir due to its understated appearance, all-white upper and glaring lack of a Swoosh. All details that brutally detached it from the previous model and did not convince a part of the public. For others, however, the Jordan 2s have been unfairly undervalued and targeted for no good reason since 1986.
Apart from the silhouette details, the Air Jordan 2s were ‘hated’ by MJ himself, who was almost pushed to cancel his contract with Nike and sign with adidas.
