Between his SS22 “Amen Break” runway show for Louis Vuitton, his bootleg-inspired Louis Vuitton Air Force 1s and the upcoming release of his Off-White™ X Air Jordan 2 Low collaborations, Virgil Abloh has been all over the headlines in June. Now, we’ve been given a detailed look at his aforementioned Air Jordan 2 Low — namely its black and blue colorway.

A somewhat under-the-radar silhouette from the early days of Jordan Brand‘s Air Jordan line, the low-cut Air Jordan 2 served as an apt counterpart to its high-cut “big brother” by providing a sleek, crisp and luxurious look with pebbled and smooth leathers alike. Here, Abloh has retained all of that original flair but added some signature Off-White™ details like Helvetica text on the medial quarter and a large yellow ziptie attached to the punchy coral laces, themselves adorned with Helvetica hits.

The shoe’s key details, however, are Michael Jordan‘s “signature” on the lateral midfoot in silver and the “crumbling” midsole, equipped with a trompe l’oeil print that makes it look as if it’s an unearthed artifact from 1986. Finishing touches are supplied by black and blue outsoles, blue details on the upper like a ball-and-wings tongue badge and exposed foam collars.

At the time of writing, an official release date for the Off-White™ X Air Jordan 2 Low in black has yet to be announced. However, early reports indicate that it may release on September 23. Its MSRP has yet to be determined.
