In honor of the Air Jordan 3’s 35th anniversary this year, Jordan Brand has begun transitioning iconic colorways from Jordan’s third silhouette to other unassuming retros. Next up, the Air Jordan 2 arrives in its “Black Cement” counterpart later in September.
Clocking in with its true-to-1987 design specs, the Air Jordan 2 “Black Cement” embarks upon a familiar jet-black tumbled leather upper. Cured almost exclusively in the pitch-dark tint, “Cement Grey” hues introduce a greyscale accent lining the mid-foot overlays while concentrating along the tongue construction and heel foxing. Elsewhere, the silhouette picks up on some semi-aged design cues as a vintage “Sail” midsole contrasts the set of “University Red” accents strewn throughout.
The Air Jordan 2 “Black Cement” is scheduled to release on September 23rd in full family sizing for a retail price of $175. In the meantime, enjoy official images of the pair below.
