A Union Los Angeles x Nike Air Jordan 2 is coming, according to leaked Nike product images circulating on social media. Union has a history of strong collaborations with the Jordan brand, most recently partnering with four Air Jordan 4 colorways, which followed closely behind two Nike Air Jordan 1s.
The co-branded Air Jordan 2s arrive in an icy gray-blue colourway with hints of beige and yellow on the laces, sockliner and lining. Union branding is featured on the tongue, insoles and sides of the ankle collar. The Air Jordan 2 from Union is nicknamed “Gray Fog”.
