Here we find Just Don’s penchant for supple leather executed across the Air Jordan 2 Retro – done up in standout royal blue from top to bottom.

As if the aesthetics weren’t striking enough, the packaging is equitably luxurious: a printed white dustbag, throwback red and gold box, and two branded Jordan pins are also delivered with the sneakers. The final touch is also its most important: a branded white, green and red insole (also done in quilted leather) reads: “Just Don – Beaverton, Italy, Chicago,” ostensibly a reference to the Italian workshops that crafted this daring sneaker.
