Even before 2016 comes, fans of Air Jordan shoes can already look forward to another fabulous addition to the most coveted Jordan Brand shoes – the Air Jordan 2 “Wing It.”
Air Jordan 2 “Wing It”
Jordan Release Date: Spring 2016
Sneaker News reveals that the pair of Air Jordan “Wing It” will hit the market this coming spring of 2016 and is set to be released in honor of the classic ad campaigns in which Michael Jordan starred. The shoes will also be released in honor of the great achievements that the Jordan Brand has garnered over the years on its legacy shoes collections.
Without a doubt, the Air Jordan 2 “Wing It” won’t disappoint sneaker fans and enthusiasts with is gorgeous colorway and design, echoing Michael Jordan’s effortless take of the game above the rim. For more than 30 years, MJ has shown a consistent level of his extraordinary game play and has achieved notable feats that marked the history of basketball. To pay homage to his soaring moments of career highs and greatness, Jordan Brand will add three legacy shoes to their “poster” collection in which the Air Jordan 2 “Wing It” is one.
This coming spring, the newest addition to the Poster Collection of the Jordan Brand shoes will sport the all-time classic colorway of Black, White, and Dark Gray. The color combination of the “Wing It” Air Jordan is inspired partially by the color-ups of the ad campaign that each shoe represents, making the “Poster Collection” Air Jordans more intriguing than others. The Air Jordan 2 “Wing It” represents the statement of the emblazoned “WING IT” ad from 1987, a year before Michael Jordan made a feat of getting eight steals against Boston during the first half of the game and also coincides with the very first original release of the shoes in 1986.
The Air Jordan 2 definitely “wing it” especially for Jordan heads who are very excited for the shoes’ release in 2016. The AJ2 Wing It will wow you with its combination of white outsole, black midsole and insole, and dark grey heel sole accents. The pair’s heel counters have white bold words accentuated on black “WING” on the left pair and “IT” on the right pair. Instead of a smooth shoe skin, the AJ2 “Wing It” has a crocodile-like skin upper finish. The original logo of the Air Jordan Brand can also be seen on the black tongue of the shoes.
Against the original release of the same shoes in 1986, the new Air Jordan 2 “Wing It” looks very much the same but with a more stylish take on design. Instead of the white tongue, the new AJ2 version now comes in black color and the plain white upper has been replaced with a croc-like finish with detailed scaling. As of now, the exact Jordan release date is still unknown but sneaker and Jordan heads really have to watch out for the Air Jordan 2 “Wing It” as it will be released on selected Jordan Brand stores sometime on next year’s spring.
