Jordan Brand‘s Delta 2 is an undeniably futuristic lifestyle sneaker, one with an intricately detailed upper and an undeniable dose of technical flair. However, on its two latest colorways — one of which offers a fresh take on the classic “Grape” color scheme, the other of which uses “Infinite Lilac” accents for a palette somewhat reminiscent of the Air Max 95 “Neon” — the Delta 2 bridges the gaps between past, present and future for appealing summertime style.
Officially dubbed “Platinum Tint/White/Particle Grey/Dark Smoke Grey,” the “Grape”-esque colorway uses muted white and gray shades on its upper, but livens its look up with rich purple and aqua accents on the heel clip and tab, the eyestays and more. “White/Platinum Tint/Grey Fog/Infinite Lilac” follows a similar ethos, but calls upon its eponymous lilac shade and an elegant smoky black for its primary accents.
Molded mesh quarter panels provide a textured base for both shoes, and also feature embroidered “Jordan” spellouts. Technical tags appear on the tongues, and the upper’s entire assemblage sits atop a cushy React foam midsole that’s bolstered with rubber in high-wear areas on the heel and toe to increase durability. Swooping mudguards and suede heel pieces round off both looks.
The Jordan Delta 2 “Platinum Tint/White/Particle Grey/Dark Smoke Grey” and “White/Platinum Tint/Grey Fog/Infinite Lilac” are both available via Nike GB now, and will likely arrive in the US soon. MSRP is set at $115 USD.
