One of the most readily identifiable shoes in basketball history is the Air Jordan 2 Low. It was first offered in 1987 as a low-top variation of the Bruce Kilgore-created Air Jordan 2, which drew inspiration from Italian refinement. The Nike Air padding system, a leather top, and a rubber outsole were all present on the Air Jordan 2 Low, which had a clean and straightforward design.

On Jordan Brand's official web page, you can find the following details on the roots of the AJ 2 shoe:

“With the introduction of the Air Jordan II comes a new era in footwear. On the heels of Michael Jordan's masterful entry into the game, and with calculated precision, the AJ Il laid the visionary foundation for a long and prosperous footwear dynasty.”

It continues as:

“Made in Italy, with faux lizard skin, sleek lines and no swoosh, the shoe was an elegant design that added sophistication to MJ's soaring style."

The most renowned streetball competition in the world, known as Quai 54, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion, the Air Jordan 2 Low is receiving a unique revamp. In order to establish an arena for urban culture and basketball in France, Hammadoun Sidibé and Thibaut de Longeville launched Quai 54 in Paris in 2003.

Since then, Quai 54 has become a worldwide phenomenon that draws tens of thousands of spectators and participants each year. Jordan Brand has been an avid supporter and partner of Quai 54, creating special footwear and clothing for the occasion.
