Official Images // Nina Chanel Abney x Air Jordan 2
With collaborations from J Balvin, A Ma Maniere, Union, OFF-WHITE, and Maison Château Rouge, it’s clear to see that the Air Jordan 2 is the centerpiece of Jordan Brand’s 2022 campaign. But if you take one look at that list of collaborators, there’s something glaringly obvious missing from the list. Now, there is finally some female representation, with the surfacing of this Nina Chanel Abney x Air Jordan 2 for 2022.
The Chicago-born, New York-based artist leaves no topic untouched in her work, with everything from race, gender, pop culture, homophobia, and politics included in her uniquely colorful work. Here, Nina takes a minimalist approach to the Air Jordan 2 OG “Chicago”, stripping it way back to basics, modifying the build, and un-shaping the release into a vector-like motif akin to her artwork. Keeping the sol units intact, the upper is overhauled into a simplified version. Heel overlays are oversized and extended, with ridging to its superior removed and replaced by a suede patch. Shrunken is the pair’s midfoot overlays and toe caps, instead opting for a shortened suede toe and one-piece leather toe/mid-panel. The pair is then completed by a special-edition art piece hang tag illustrated by Nina herself, depicting Mike’s famous fade-away.
