Who should buy the Air Jordan 2 Retro Low

The Air Jordan 2 Retro Low is a luxury-inspired sneaker. What sets it apart from other Jordan models is that it does not carry the Nike Swoosh and the Jumpman logo. While the Air Jordan 1 is made in Asia, the Air Jordan 2 Retro Low is beautifully handmade in Italy with faux lizard skin. The Air Jordan 2 was used by Michael Jordan in his second season with the NBA.

This is an amazing option for you if:

  • You're looking for something sporty and casual and luxuious.
  • You're an Air Jordan super fan and would want to flaunt its premium material on your feet.
