“Look, up in the Air.”

It's no secret that the Air Jordan 2 is quickly becoming one of the most popular Jordan Brand models right now. Thanks to collaborations with Off-White and Union LA, hype surrounding Michael Jordan's second signature shoe has shot up, and if you still don't have a pair in your daily rotation, you're going to want to pay attention to the freshly unveiled Air Jordan 2 Low "Look, Up In The Air."

Inspired by one of the most iconic Jordan Brand campaigns of the late '80s, this pair boasts a clean leather and suede exterior with pastel accents throughout for a Spring-ready vibe. Soft yellow accents take over the lacing system, and this hue extends towards the Nike Air midsole underfoot which offers up a vintage vibe. Elsewhere, the toebox is decorated with a line of perforations as a nod to the Jordan 2's sartorial roots, and the original winged basketball makes a cameo on the tongue.

Of course, you can't talk about this shoe without mentioning the custom insoles. Featuring Chicago's skyline across a sunset backdrop, the phrase "Look, up in the Air" is printed across in large white letters as a nod to the 1987 poster.

Not much else is known about the Air Jordan 2 Low "Look, Up In The Air" at this moment in time, but our sources tell us that they'll release on June 22nd just in time for Summer. Let us know what you think of this special colorway, and while you're here, you might as well get up close with the A Ma Maniere x Air Jordan 12 "White."
