Few non-signature shoes have had as successful a postseason legacy as the Soldier. Each of those Soldier games from LeBron were so dominant, the images of the stripped-down, strapped shoes are inseparable from the performances themselves. After leaving the league, all three worked tirelessly to help break down barriers for future generations. 2022 has promised a full assortment of Air Jordan 2 releases, varying from collaborative projects with likes of Union Los Angeles, J Balvin, and A Ma Maniere. Designed by Tinker Hatfield and originally released as Air Jordan 1 High the Air Max III in 1990, the Air Max 90 quite literally enlarged the window of possibility for Nike Air. The model had a bigger Air unit than its predecessors, as well as improved flexibility and a variable, multi-port lacing system that allowed more fit options. Irving grew up and entered the professional arena during an era that benefited from being able to pick footwear Air Jordan 1 Low from the best of the best. Specifically, there was opportunity to play and chill in both the latest designs and the greatest silhouettes of the past. When Virgil Abloh created his own collaborative Air Jordan 2s at the tail end of 2021, the late designer effectively ushered Air Jordan 1 Mid in the silhouette's rebirth. And now, we're awaiting a number of collaborations and Retros, from Union LA's upcoming two-part effort to the return of the OG Chicago colorway. Seemingly inspired by the original Air Jordan 1's Royal ensemble from 1985, the upcoming retro opts for a two-tone arrangement across its leather upper. Compared to its last appearance in 2013, this pair thankfully forgoes the Jumpman logo at the rear.
