Jordan Brand has decided to finally release the Air Jordan 2 OG “Chicago” this holiday season, as interest in the shoe keeps growing. With Virgil’s help and the release of his Off-White Jordan 2s, the silhouette is back in the spotlight.

Higher cut and layered uppers make for a distinctive throwback design

The upcoming retro will have the same look as it did in 1986, with all of the original details. Early reports say that both shoes are made of the same high-quality materials that were first used in the mid-1980s. Its uppers have a higher cut and are layered in white with black trim across the laces. The tongue and heel have small touches of red. On the heel and tongue of each shoe, there are labels that say Nike and Jumpman. The sneaker will come back in its original packaging, with a hangtag with the Wings logo and a booklet.


Air Jordan fans have never had it better than they do right now. The latest retro kicks from the brand are some of the best in its long history. People who like sometimes-overlooked details and classic looks really like this “Chicago” Air Jordan 2.
