Given how unique of a player Zion Williamson is, it’s only right that his footwear continues to evolve as he enters another year in the NBA. His versatility comes from his size, speed, and quickness, and his sneakers need to not only withstand the power he generates on every cut and run, but they need to withstand the impact of his landings without sacrificing responsiveness. The Jordan Zion 2 is Jordan Brand’s response to that exact conundrum, resulting in a lightweight, secure, and responsive sneaker fit to propel Zion Williamson to the next level of stardom.
The “Hope Diamond” colorway of the Zion 2 takes inspiration from the infamous blue diamond set within a pendant that has changed hands countless times since the 17th century before landing in the Smithsonian Institute. Unlike the colorless diamonds surrounding it, the Hope Diamond is a uniquely deep hue of blue, the one trait that separates it from any other diamond. Multi-faceted and wondrously unique are ways you can describe both the Hope diamond and Zion Williamson’s game on the court, and appropriate comparison for the second of the two launch colorways of the Jordan Zion 2.
Coming in half blue, pink prime, and deep royal blue, this pair features a predominantly pale blue synthetic leather upper with a small hit of pink on the "Zoom Air" branding found on the midfoot strap. The white portion of the midsole is matched with a white outsole, with a singular pod of vibrant pink traction prominently placed in the middle. The bootie and heel lockdown are patterned with a dazzling light effect, the blue backdrop similar to the hue of the Hope Diamond. Satisfying the motif of light passing through the Hope Diamond, the Zion logo sits on a solid blue portion of the tongue in half blue, with matching laces that work themselves up the sneaker.
The Jordan Zion 2 Hope Diamond is set to release on June 30th, 2022. Look for the sneaker to drop on Nike and at select Jordan Brand retailers for a price of $140 in men's sizes.
