Virgil Abloh, A Ma Maniere, and Union LA have made 2022 the Air Jordan 2‘s year. To mark the silhouette’s comeback, Jordan Brand partnered Maison Château Rouge, who debuted the “FEARLESS ONES” in 2019.

This sneaker honors Michael Jordan in a special way

Three years later, the Paris-based group is making their own version of Michael Jackson’s second signature. And to show respect, they put the athlete’s picture on the insoles, showing him both close up and in the air next to the words “UNITED YOUTH INTERNATIONAL.” On the outside, the shoe shows off Maison Chateau Rouge’s love of fun textures with brogue-style trims next to squiggle-covered paneling. So, the shoe has yellow and orange accents all over it. The brighter, warmer color stands out on the co-branded heel, the contrasting stitching, and the dotted line along the laces.


The collaboration of Air Jordan and Maison Chateau Rouge is a nod to one of the best basketball players of all time, who was famous all over the world when he was at the top of his game. This project is a great example of MJ’s skill and performance on and off the court. The design and functionality of the shoe undoubtedly match its looks.
