The Air Jordan 2 “Rivals” Tributes Michael’s Early NBA Battles
Originally reported by @zSneakerheadz as a Raptors-themed colorway, first looks have debunked that notion — but it does arrive inspired by NBA franchises. The ladies-exclusive drop arrives in true “What The” form, with both left and right shoes and their respective panels sporting an array of colors and materials, Across the pair, four of the most formidable NBA franchises from the mid-to-late 80s and early 90s are honored, teams that significantly challenged Mike and his Bulls, undoubtedly fueling his winning mentality for future success,
Fittingly, the left shoe is dedicated to the Western Conference, featuring team colors of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Portland Trailblazers, the first two teams that challenge MJ and his Bulls in the NBA Finals. The right shoe — the East — honors powerhouse franchises in the Boston Celtics and the New York Knicks, two who provided some of the most epic battles in Mike’s career. Materials include quilted leather, a-la Don C, jersey mesh, basketball-textured leather, satin, and patent leather.
