A Quick Look at the Air Jordan 2 Retro Wing It Release

Living up to the success of the Air Jordan 1 was no small task, so Nike enlisted two of its most accomplished designers, Bruce Kilgore and Peter Moore, to collaborate on the newest Air Jordan design.

Kilgore, who created the Air Force 1 in 1982, and Moore, who designed the Air Jordan 1, decided to develop a shoe that could perform on the court and still look great with a suit.

Nike was able to achieve the elegance of the Air Jordan 2 by producing them in Italy using premium Italian leather and faux iguana skin. They also eliminated the large Swoosh logo for a cleaner look. Although the Nike signature appears on the heel and the outsole, this was the first sneaker to feature Air Jordan as the primary branding with the iconic Wings logo on the tongue.

The new Air Jordan design also underwent performance upgrades, including a speed lacing system, foam midsoles, larger air units in the heel for more support and a large heel cup wrapping the rear of the shoe for stability.

History of Air Jordan 2

Originally released in 1986, the Air Jordan 2 is an often-overlooked silhouette in the Air Jordan lineage, but it’s a worthy shoe, nonetheless. While it wasn't as monumental as the Air Jordan 1 that preceded it or as culture-shifting as the Air Jordan 3 that followed, the Air Jordan 2 was undoubtedly ahead of its time.

The silhouette embodied luxury decades before there was a steady demand for designer-quality shoes from sportswear brands or full-on collaborations like the recently released Dior x Air Jordan 1.

Jordan 2 Retro Wing It 2016

The 2016 release of the Air Jordan 2 Retro Wing It derives its colorway and its name from the OG Air Jordan 2 black-and-white ad campaigns of 1986. The release simultaneously celebrates 30 wildly successful years of the Jordan brand. The leather upper boasts a marked reptilian texture throughout, presenting a luxury-inspired aesthetic that made this Bruce Kilgore-designed mid-top even more noticeable on store shelves and the streets. 'Wing It,' appearing on the shoe's heels from left to right, references the main slogan from the original ad.
