Fast forward three years and the Paris-based outfit is crafting their own version of MJ’s second signature. And to appropriately pay homage, they’ve dressed the insoles with the athlete’s very image, depicting him both up close and mid-air next to “UNITED YOUTH INTERNATIONAL” markings. Along the exterior, the shoe exhibits Maison Château Rouge’s penchant for playful textures, as brogue-styled trims wrap the side adjacent to squiggle-covered paneling. Yellow and orange accents, then, run throughout the shoe, with the bolder warm tone specifically highlighting the co-branded heel, the contrasting stitching, and the dotted line along the laces.
hanks to the likes of Virgil Abloh, A Ma Maniere, and Union LA, 2022 has quickly become the year of the Air Jordan 2. And to further celebrate the silhouette’s return, Jordan Brand has enlisted the help of Maison Château Rouge, who proved their mettle with a pair of “FEARLESS ONES” back in 2019.
