Jordan Brand Officially Unveils the Zion 2

Marco Negrete

When Zion Williamson entered the league in 2019, he was considered the most promising prospect since LeBron James. With that comparison came an endorsement battle that resulted in Jordan Brand (and Nike, Inc. by default) winning. Williamson’s time in the league has been troubled by injury, but there’s no question that he’s shown flashes of superstardom when on the court. And superstars get signature sneakers. The Zion 1 launched last year and naturally never lived up to its potential because Zion didn’t play in it. We tried it out and found it to be a good performance sneaker, but we never got to see its full potential. Now, with all signs pointing towards him being healthy this year and rejoining a promising young New Orleans Pelicans roster, the Zion 2 is just in time.

Deviating away from most of the design language of the Zion 1, the 2 comes equipped with the tools needed to support one of the most electrifying athletes on the planet. It also includes an evolved Zion logo. Jordan Brand describes some of the highlights as follows:

  • The Jordan Zion 2 is built to allow Williamson to be fully locked in when on the court.
  • The lightweight Jordan Zion 2 is designed to remain comfortable under the extreme duress of Williamson’s unique athletic gifts.
  • The shoe is segmented into three key areas: the heel for impact resistance, the middle for resilience and containment, and the toes for comfort and mobility.
  • Subtle details throughout the Jordan Zion 2 evoke Williamson’s drive.

In North America, the Jordan Zion 2 releases on June 22 in the Voodoo colorway and June 30 in the Hope Diamond colorway.

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
