Profile of the Jordan Team Elite 2 Low

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 is 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.

Fit

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.

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.

Style

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.
