Air Jordan Fridays, AJII

The Air Jordan 2 (II) Low 1995 - White - Red - Black retailed foe $105, and were very popular upon release. They were designed by Brue Kilgore, and the technical specs included Nike’s patented air sole unit, as well as faux lizard skin uppers. The sleek lines and overall look give these low tops a very futuristic look. They came in a very colorful box which featured special tissue paper and a post Card.? They feature mostly white leather upper with red and black accents, as well as a black midsole which definitely contrasts the white upper, thus making the shoe an attention grabber.

The Air Jordan 2 high tops and low tops were very stylish, making them as popular as the AJ I (according to sales). All Original Air Jordan IIs were made in Italy. Rumor is after the Original Air Jordan 2 model the mold was either destroyed or was stolen. (Fritz being the Nike man that you are can you divulge if this rumor is true?) So when the Air Jordan II re-released in 1994-95, Nike had to dissect the Original pair, and when Jordan Brand re-released the AJ 2 once again in 2004, they had to dissect a pair of the 1994-95 retros. Nike did not produce a black color way of the AJ II, even though sketches and prototypes were put together. One of the most sought out pair of shoes is the Air Jordan II K.O. Very little are in existence, and also very few pictures are floating around.
