The Air Jordan 2 “Alternate ’87” is next on the list of Air Jordan models that will complete the Air Jordan Retro “Alternate” Collection.
Following the recent “Radio Raheem” Air Jordan 2 release, which led the way for the second Air Jordans comeback, comes this “Alternate” concept featuring the Chicago Bulls early colors of black and red. The fact that these shoes never made it as an OG colorway back in 1987 is a bit of a heartbreaker, being that they follow a “Bred” color scheme and is definitely something Michael Jordan could have sported during his reign in that era.
The shoe is inspired by a Player Exclusive design Jordan Brand decided to make for athletes and collectors alike. It features a full black upper highlighted by Red accents throughout.
Take a look at the images below, share your thoughts on these “AlmO-G’s” (thats what I’m going to refer to them as) and Stay Laced with Whatarethose for more details on this release.
