Jordan and J. Balvin have teamed up for a spicy Air Jordan 2.
If Jordan Brand's end of 2021 releases haven't indicated it already, let us be the first to tell you - Air Jordan 2's are back. Recently, the Jordan 2 silhouette has been reimagined by Virgil's Off-White brand, Union LA's Chris Gibbs, and now J. Balvin is getting in on the action.
That's right, the Latin Rap sensation graced us with a first look at his upcoming glow-in-the-dark Jordan 2. The teaser reveals a padded upper juxtaposed by a glow-in-the-dark Air Jordan "Wings" logo on the tongue as well as a full translucent glow-in-the-dark sole. The accompanying image shows three different sizes of the Air Jordan 2 Retro, which could indicate that the sneaker will be dropping in a full family size run. Little else is known about the sneaker, but it can be safe to assume that Balvin's sophomore project with Jordan will likely not release until 2022 given the brand's already full release calendar through the end of 2021.
Update 11/10/21: According to J. Balvin, this collab with be the first LED infused Air Jordan Retro. Featuring an LED button on the tongue that when pressed lights up the tongue logo and outsole, rather than glow-in-the-dark treatments as previously mentioned.
