According to some reliable sources Don C of Just Don fame will be releasing the third and final colorway of his ongoing Air Jordan 2 collaborations this Spring/Summer 2017 season. While we’ve seen some other samples featuring a black leather upper, rumors are that the third Just Don x Air Jordan 2 will be the above pictured light pink, a shade perfect for Spring 2017 and only shows the Jumpman’s dedication to introducing new lifestyle-ready designs. Jordan Brand unveiled the pink Don C x Air Jordan 2 project on Tuesday, confirming info about the shoes releasing only in small sizes and posting a full list of retailers that will carry them. It looks like the shoes will not be available online via Nike or Jordan, although they will be on the Just Don website. Additionally, the Don C x Air Jordan 2 “Arctic Orange” will release at Wish, Concepts, Kith, Social Status, RSVP Gallery, 32 South State, Xhibition, Sneaker Politics, Oneness, SoleFly, Creme, Trophy Room, Ubiq, and Capsule. This sneaker will also be available at international retailers, although Jordan Brand hasn’t posted a list of stores outside the U.S. that will carry them. The sneakers won’t come in men’s sizes, a decision made by Don C after he saw his family miss out on previous Jordan 2s of his that weren’t available in a wide range of sizes. The Just Don x Air Jordan 2 collaborations first launched back in 2015 which came in all Blue. In 2016, the two followed up with the ‘Beach’ edition which came in a special package. Now on to the third Air Jordan 2 designed by Don C which is covered in a shade of Light Pink. The series, which is limited, all feature premium materials. As you can see, quilted leather lands on the uppers while suede is applied to the overlays.
“My family couldn’t participate in the last couple of Jordan releases so it felt good to allow them to take part. This collaboration is not only for my blood family but my extended family—all my friends,” Don C says in a piece at the Jordan blog. “I am excited to put family first for this drop and expand my Jordan collaboration to everyone.” Nike is revamping its SNKRS app with a new feature that allows the brand to launch shoes in specific geographic locations. The brand will debut this new way of selling shoes, called the SNKRS Stash, with the release of the Just Don x Air Jordan 2 “Arctic Orange.”
SNKRS app users should get notifications about this first release today, with a geo-location going live in Los Angeles at noon PST. Shoppers who head to a designated location in the specified time window will have the ability to purchase the sneakers online via the Nike SNKRS Stash card. The launch works something like a scavenger hunt—the mystery location won’t be immediately revealed, and users will have to follow clues to find it. Nike has a landing page explaining the feature here. The Just Don x Air Jordan 2 is a limited edition collaboration from Don C and Jordan Brand. They first debuted the collab in January 2015 in a “Blue” colorway, followed by the “Beach” colorway that released as a package in January 2016. The third colorway of Don C’s designed Air Jordan 2 will come in a Light Pink shade that covers the entire shoe. Much like the other releases, this pair is built with a premium quilted leather upper and suede overlays.
Michael Jordan who dropped 18 points in the game was also joined in the game by Reggie Miller, Kenny Smith and James Worthy to name a few. Also known as the Air Jordan 2 UNC PE which was worn by Michael Jordan on January 18th, 1986 during the Carolina Pro Alumni basketball game. On this particular day, this was the first time that the North Carolina Tar Heels claimed the Dean E. Smith Center as their home.
While inspiration has came from the Alumni Game, this Air Jordan 2 features a North Carolina and Chicago Bulls color theme throughout. As you can see, the uppers are done in White while constructed of leather. In addition, we have Black and Varsity Red accents seen on the tongue, laces and midsole. At the heel we have University Blue with ‘MJ’ and ‘6/28/87’ which pays tribute to the date the game was played. This 2017 version of the Air Jordan 2 Alumni will return in its OG colors of White, Varsity Red and Black. Giving it that UNC feel is the Carolina Blue noted on the heel tab of the shoe. Special detailing which was not on the PE version include the special branding on the heels that reads, “MJ” and “6/28/87” as a nod to the date the UNC vs. ULCA Alumni game was played.
