Combining three shoes into one pair with positive results doesn’t happen often, but when it is done properly, it’s f*cking sweet. The Air Jordan 2 Retro ‘Dark Concord’ is one such case. Off top, there are elements of the Jordan 3 and 11 done up in small amounts on the Jordan 2, and it all flows rather nicely.
In days where Jordan Brand is slinging $40 elephant print tank tops, it’s easy to get turned off by the pattern. But when done in small doses the print definitely has an upside. Make the elephant panels a few shades lighter and sans the black coloring and it adds appeal to what could be considered a droll pair of kicks. And since Infrared has already been done, dark concord comes out as a winner for the accent color. Refreshing to see overlooked colors getting some run on different retros. I suppose MJ is holding off on the sport blue till August.
The Air Jordan 2 Retro ‘Dark Concord’ releases May 10 for a retail ticket of $150.
