Since Virgil Abloh collaborated on the silhouette late last year, the Air Jordan 2 has quickly re-emerged as a fashion icon. It wasn’t long before it was announced that Union LA, A Ma Maniere, and J Balvin were all working on their own co-created colorways. In the months since we’ve seen a lot from Chris Gibbs and James Whitner, but the Colombian singer’s camp has only released teasers.
The J Balvin x Air Jordan 2 comes in a vibrant, sky-inspired colorway, and we get our first look at it in all its glory today. Much of the heel counter and the lining are covered in clouds, laying on top of a bright shade of blue that complements the quilted and grid-patterned panels that sit next to it. The shoe’s toe cap, eye stays, and instep are all outfitted in a light grey suede hit. LED lights have been added to the branded emblems, which shine down the front of the tongue.
Check out the images below for a closer look. These are expected to be out in September, and more information is expected to be released soon.
