The Jordan 2 has garnered massive attention in recent months. Sure, the silhouette's 35th birthday had to be celebrated. Of course, Jordan can thank Virgil Abloh for the hype surrounding the silhouette – rest in power. In addition to Virgil, Union LA has also done a lot to bring the silhouette back into the limelight. Most of you have probably already seen the Gray Fog design. Before it hits the shelves, there is already the next colourway of the Air Jordan 2 Union LA. It's called “Rattan” and should appear as soon as possible in the new year.
When Union LA designs a sneaker, we can assume that there will be at least two colourways. Same this time. As the name Gray Fog already suggests, the first design is rather colder and gray. The rattan, on the other hand, is beige and warm. There is something for everyone again. We also have to admit at this point that the more often we see the Botte, the better we find it. We'll probably have to make an effort when it's released.
The rattan also comes in a mix of mesh and suede elements. The bright golden yellow familiar from Union serves as the most striking accent on the shoe this time. Parts of the laces and a panel under perforated suede on the outside of the shoe set bright accents with the light-colored upper. The classic UN/LA logo hangs from the eyelets. The mesh is decorated with embroidered circles at the ankle area. The sample label with the lettering “HO21” actually indicated a release for Christmas 2021, but unfortunately the date cannot be met due to delivery problems. The second colorway will definitely come in a nice box with three shoelace colors. All in all, a very cool implementation that certainly looks even better on the foot.
As already mentioned, the Air Jordan 2 Union LA Rattan will not be released until spring 2022. As soon as we have more information about the release , we will let you know via our release calendar .
