Two18, a luxe streetwear boutique adjacent to Detroit’s Eastern Market, was selected by Jordan Brand to release an exclusive Detroit-themed low-top Air Jordan 2 sneaker and an apparel collection. The Designer says the collaboration is inspired by Detroit’s resilience. The highly anticipated Detroit launch will be held at Two18,1400 E Fisher Service Drive in Detroit on Friday, October 14, beginning at 2:18 p.m. The collection will launch globally on October 21.
“The goal was to create a shoe for the streets, to honor Detroit’s entrenched sneaker culture. We also want to appeal to those outside our borders who just love the city’s vibe,” said Roland Coit, owner of Two18. “That’s why the insole’s graphics also include cities around the area, shouting out Pontiac, Southfield, Oak Park, Inkster, Highland Park and Flint.”
Air Jordan 2 is Michael Jordan’s second signature model, debuting in 1986 featuring a high-end luxury design. Since then, the sneaker world has watched it evolve and customize to advance innovative color pallets and style. The Two18 Detroit version continues in that tradition. Sneaker watchers have touted the rich earthy tones and luxe materials used throughout the shoe, including nubuck, nappy suede, and a croc print.
The shoe will be accompanied by matching apparel, including two unisex tee’s, a men’s hoodie and shorts, and a women’s jogging suit.
The shoe retails at $200 and will be available in Michigan at Two18 on Friday, October 14, 2021. To stay up-to-date on Two18 and the Jordan release, follow on Instagram @shoptwo18 or visit online at shoptwo18.com.
