The Jordan Brand has grown very well under its parent company, Nike. The Air Jordan is available in most of the shoe stores of U.S. Michael Jordan retired and the shoes still were much in demand. The Jordan Empire has introduced many series of shoes and dedicated it to the great player and well known sports personality, Michael Jordan. The Air Jordan empire also has to its credit many designs and varieties of sneakers which have also become quite popular. The retro styles are very much in demand and the Jordan Brand has taken up the new job of re-inventing all its old classic models. Thus, emerged Air Jordan Nu'Retro 2.
The Air Jordan II has got its inspiration from its ancestor. The older version had a style of its own with high top cut, cup sole, original Jordan wings logo and also stitched bordering. On the contrary, the newer version boasts of being trim and sleek. But what is interesting here is that there are both similarities and differences in both these models. The Retro 2 uses a fuller length of air sole which lends extra comfort to the wearer. The original shoes used only traditional laces. The other details like Jordan's sports achievements through 1987 are mentioned. There is mention of the Jumpman logo which was introduced in the year 1987. The mainline Air Jordan II was the only shoes which was not black in color.
The Retro 2 is a stylish and elegant shoe. Its feat on the hardwood differs. The Retro shoes offer good ankle support because of the high cut. The Nubuck synthetic leather of the shoe is unstretchable and does not sag as compared to other types of leather. These shoes are definitely different from the other shoes which are available of late. A very good advantage here is that these shoes are made of air soles which lend support and comfort too. The other negative in this type of shoes is that it is not provided with an external arch support and hence fast breaks, landings, quick cuts become a conscious activity and not an effortless job. They are made of man made materials e.g. carbon fiber plate and hence the wearer would feel very hot. It is absolutely impossible for the air to pass making it difficult for the feet to breathe properly. There is practically no place for the heat to escape and hence sometimes they are not as comfortable as they are thought to be.
The shoes are best when used on pavements and not so good on hardwood. If you are not able to buy a true retro sneaker, then the second best option is to go in for a Nu Retro.
