How do Air Jordan 2s Fit? Your Air Jordan 2 Sizing and Fit Guide

Share

The golden age of the Air Jordan 2 is finally upon us, 35 years after its debut. Ushered in by the Virgil-designed Off-White x Nike Air Jordan 2 Low pack, the new wave of interest in the sneak is being fuelled by Jordan Brand’s collaborations with the most respected brands and boutiques in the world, each of which is putting its own unique spin on the basketball silhouette.

 

And no matter which version of the Air Jordan 2 you’re hoping to get your hands on – the Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 2, perhaps? Or the Union LA x Air Jordan 2? – you almost definitely have queries regarding Air Jordan 2 sizing, fit, styling, comfort and care. So, to make sure you have all of the answers you need before you make the jump and purchase a pair, we reached out to five of the flyest sneakerheads that’ve been sporting the shoe in recent months to ask them all of the essential Air Jordan 2 questions. Discover what they had to say below. 

 

Air Jordan 2 Overview

 

How do Air Jordan 2s fit?

Unlike some of the most popular Air Jordan silhouettes, the Air Jordan 2 fits true to size. 

 

How comfortable are Air Jordan 2s?

 

Thanks to the bountiful padding inside of the Air Jordan 2, the basketball silhouette is very comfortable. However, it’s important to note that it’s not as comfortable as silhouettes infused with new technologies. 

 

How do you care for Air Jordan 2s?

 

Air Jordan 2s are relatively easy to clean – most use sneaker protection sprays and wet wipes. Once clean, it’s important to store the pairs away from sunlight.

The Air Jordan 2 may be overlooked by the general public, but it’s a silhouette that’s greatly appreciated by basketball fans and sneakerheads. Having said that, there’s recently been an increase in interest in the model thanks to collaborative takes on the kick (e.g. Union LA x Air Jordan 2, Maison Château Rouge x Air Jordan 2 etc.). 

 

The Air Jordan 2 I’m wearing today – the Off-White x Air Jordan 2 – is the most beautiful Jordan 2 ever made. I love the details Virgil Abloh brought to the shoe, such as the cracked sole and the hits of beige. 

 

How do Air Jordan 2s fit?

I find the true-to-size pair I own fits perfectly, , but I also feel like I could’ve opted for a half size up. 

 

How do you style Air Jordan 2s?

I find that the Air Jordan 2 Low works with all kinds of clothing, whether the look you’re going for is more casual or more formal. 

 

How comfortable are Air Jordan 2s?

I find both the Air Jordan 2 High and the Air Jordan 2 Low are super comfortable. They really are underrated sneakers.

 

How do you care for your Air Jordan 2s?

I take care of all of my sneakers – I treat them like they’re my babies. I usually clean them with wipes and store them in either their original boxes or, like trophies, in plastic boxes.

The Union LA x Air Jordan 2 ‘Rattan’ is an exclusive sneaker that you can’t go wrong with. The clean, neutral-colored shoe can be styled with all kinds of pieces, and although it’s traditionally a basketball sneaker, I wear mine as a lifestyle sneaker. 

 

How do Air Jordan 2s fit?

I find that opting for your true size is best when purchasing Air Jordan 2s. 

 

How do you style Air Jordan 2s?

I enjoy pairing my Union LA x Air Jordan 2 ‘Rattan’ sneakers with olive or khaki cargo pants because I find that the outfit flows from pants to sneakers. Today, I’ve paired my cargos and AJ2s with a graphic tee and a hat, and I’ve thrown a cropped denim jacket on top to finish off the look.

 

How comfortable are Air Jordan 2s?

My Air Jordan 2s are the most comfortable Jordans I own as the bulky silhouette is padded with ample cushioning. It’s certainly more comfortable than its predecessor, the Air Jordan 1.

 

How do you care for your Air Jordan 2s?

When it comes to my sneakers, I try to avoid wearing them at parties and outdoor events. But if they do get scuffed or stepped on as I’m out and about, I clean them with Jason Markk products as soon as I’m home. Once they look brand new, I store them in my The Container Store boxes.

The Air Jordan 2 is a timeless silhouette. Originally released in 1986, the shoe hasn’t always been the most popular sneaker, but I’m glad to see that there’s been a push toward the model in recent years. Today, I’m wearing the Air Jordan 2 ‘Grey Fog’ born from the successful collaboration between Jordan Brand and streetwear boutique Union LA. 

 

How do Air Jordan 2s fit?

I would say that the Air Jordan 2 fits true to size. The base is pretty wide – it reminds me of the solid sole of the Air Force 1.

 

How do you style Air Jordan 2s?

The Air Jordan 2 is a relatively simple silhouette; hence, it’s super easy to style. I usually style them with wide jeans or cargo pants which slightly cover the shoe and counterbalance its bulky aesthetic. Here, I’ve styled my AJ2s with Carhartt double knee pants, an LA Gold tee and a beige jacket. I feel like all of the elements of this get-up complement each other.

  

How comfortable are Air Jordan 2s?

Regardless of its weight, the Air Jordan 2 is very comfortable. In fact, they’re so comfortable that I can wear them throughout an entire day with no problems. 

 

How do you care for your Air Jordan 2s?

To care for my Air Jordan 2s, I spray them with Crep Protect and occasionally wash them if they’re dirty. I also make sure I store them away from daylight to make sure they stay in good condition for years to come.

I have both pairs of the Union LA x Air Jordan 2 ‘Future is Now’ collection, namely the ‘Rattan’ and the ‘Grey Fog’. I love the pastel tones of the collaborative kicks and the perforated design of the side panels. Plus, I love the fact that they’ve incorporated the Jumpman logo into the design – an emblem that’s not typically found on the silhouette. 

 

How do Air Jordan 2s fit?

Although I usually go up half a size when copping Air Jordan 1s, I usually stick to my true size when it comes to Air Jordan 2s.

 

How do you style Air Jordan 2s?

I'm inclined to stick to a pastel palette when styling these sneakers with an everyday ‘fit – say, some shorts and a sweatshirt. However, you can wear this pair of kicks with most of the pieces in one’s wardrobe, including business-casual pieces.

 

How comfortable are Air Jordan 2s?

 As the AJ2 was released in 1986, it’s no surprise that the shoe is not as comfortable as those infused with new technologies (e.g. Nike Vapormax and React Foam sneakers). However, I must say that the updated Air Jordan 2 is more comfortable than the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 3. 

 

How do you care for your Air Jordan 2s?

I wipe the soles of my AJ2s with wet wipes before storing them in their original boxes. Other than that, I don’t do anything special. They’re pretty easy to look after.

I wear my Union LA x Nike Air Jordan 2 ‘Grey Fog’ sneakers often so that the customers in the sneaker store I work in can get an idea of how to style them. I enjoy them because the silhouette looks slim and the color is a unique bluey-grey hue. 

 

How do Air Jordan 2s fit?

My Union LA ‘Grey Fog’ sneaker are my first pair of Air Jordan 2s, and I decided to purchase them in my true size. They feel absolutely fine, but next time I think I’d go half a size up so they’re a little roomier. 

 

How do you style Air Jordan 2s?

For this outfit, I wanted to pair my orange and blue Heron Preston jeans with my AJ2s. How did I pull this look off? I balanced out the ‘fit with a bright-colored top. 

 

How comfortable are Air Jordan 2s?

In my opinion, these Air Jordan 2s are extremely comfortable. If I was to liken the on-foot experience to any other sneaker, it would be the Air Jordan 4. 

 

How do you care for your Air Jordan 2s?

I take care of my Air Jordan 2s by spraying a waterproof protector on them before heading out of the house. And after I wear the shoes, I put them back in the box they originally came in. I also avoid wearing them every day; instead, I have a sneaker rotation.
