Black Cement is coming to the AJ2.

The Air Jordan 2, introduced in 1986, marked a departure from its predecessor's look. Designed by Bruce Kilgore, it featured premium materials, Italian craftsmanship, and a sleek silhouette. Its unique mix of style and performance made it a standout in the Air Jordan line, garnering a loyal fan base. The absence of Nike branding on the shoe's exterior further emphasized its elegant simplicity. The sneaker hasn't garnered as much popularity as other models, such as the Air Jordan 1. However, the Air Jordan 2 is still a high-quality sneaker that is still getting new colorways.

The iconic Black Cement colorway is a cornerstone of sneaker culture. Set to release in the Air Jordan model, it boasts a black leather upper with gray accents and signature cement print detailing. This classic combination echoes the Air Jordan legacy, resonating with fans who appreciate its timeless and versatile style. Now the Black Cement color scheme is coming to the Air Jordan 2. This is definitely an opportunity for the sneakers to garner some more popularity and put the AJ2 on the map.
