The Jordan Team Elite 2 Low is retroed in the second quarter of 2018. It’s sold at $110 per pair, making it among the cheapest basketball shoes at that time. When NIKEiD was launched, the original Jordan Team Elite 2 Low was the first shoe model that it featured. Other Swoosh basketball shoes available for customization are the Kyrie 5, and KD 11. These Jordan basketball sneakers feature a compression-molded Phylon midsole. The solid rubber outsole has herringbone on it. The upper features a combination of synthetic and full-grain leather.
Cushion. The Jordan Team Elite 2 Low comes with a full-length Air unit embedded in a compression-molded Phylon midsole. It delivers maximum impact absorption and bounciness.
Traction. The Jordan Team Elite 2 Low has a herringbone traction pattern on its solid rubber outsole. The pattern has three major sections. The middle region has tight and thin flex grooves, whereas the other two sections feature thick and widely spaced ones. The traction pattern and the durable rubber work together to enhance the shoe’s grip on the floor.
Length and Width. There are not a lot of reports regarding the fit of the retro version of the Jordan Team Elite 2 Low. New buyers are advised to either go for their true Jordan sizes or fit the shoe in a local store first before purchasing.
Lockdown. Just like other Jordan basketball classics, the Jordan Team Elite 2 Low uses a standard lacing system. To achieve a comfortable fit, the tongue and the tightness of the shoelaces can be adjusted.
The rear area of the Jordan Team Elite 2 Low’s upper is made of full-grain leather, the rest is composed of synthetic leather. The ankle collar and inner walls of the shoe are generously padded for all-day comfort. To help wick away moisture, the tongue and the medial side of the shoe have perforations.
The Jordan Team Elite 2 Low comes in basic colorways with simple and elegant designs. The prestigious Jumpman logo is found on the lateral side. An “AIR” callout is seen on the heel; this is an obvious reference to the technology used in the midsole.
The Jordan Team Elite 2 Low are released in these colorways:
- Black/Gym Red/White
- Gym Red/White/Black
- White/Black/Gym Red/White
- White/Pure Platinum/Cool Grey
