Jordan Brand is teaming up with partners from cultural touchstones around the world, spotlighting standout sneaker retailers and their communities. From Detroit to South Africa to Manila, we're bringing their inspiring local stories to a global audience. Our collaboration with Detroit sneaker boutique Two 18 sets out to prove that greatness comes from community. This fresh take on the AJ2 is unquestionably born out of hometown pride, bridging worlds to showcase fashion as a way of life—and a universal language. The crafted upper is made with richly textured suede with a crisp leather collar lining. Artisan detailing abounds, from branding to hardware to stitching, while plastic eyelets add a tortoiseshell touch. Look inside to find a map of Detroit's metro area printed on the insole. And as a poignant finishing touch, the gradient brown-to-clear outsole recalls the Flint water crisis and the beauty of hope.
