Nina Chanel Abney and the Air Jordan 2 Get Artsy

Devin Robertson

2022 is the year of the Air Jordan 2, from A Ma Maniere, Union, to the upcoming Two18 pair, the oft overlooked silhouette is getting renewed shine. This time Jordan Brand is pairing with another Chicago legend for a new take on the Air Jordan 2. Renowned artist Nina Chanel Abney is putting her unique artistry on an equally unique shoe. 

While most of the recent takes on the shoe have been altering the AJ2 with more additions to the sneaker, Nina Chaney Abney’s iteration goes for a more pared-down approach. The sneaker’s usual piping and trim have been removed making for a more streamlined affair. The sneaker’s white leather upper is accentuated by hits of suede on the toe and heel tab as well as reptilian overlay panels. A red heel panel gives it that familiar Chicago feel while the Sail outsole adds a vintage energy to the sneaker. To tie it all together, black shoelaces, insoles bearing Nina Chanel Abney’s signature and a frame-style hangtag featuring Abney’s artistic depiction of His Airness. 

The Air Jordan 2 x Nina Chanel Abney drops on July 8 on SNKRS and select retailers and will retail at $250. As always, our sneaker monitors and release day strategy will have members ready for drop day.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
