If you didn’t satisfy your sweet tooth on Halloween this past Sunday, the Jordan Brand has you covered. Dropping tonight are three colorful looks of the Air Jordan Retro 2 collectively known as the “Candy Pack.” Also dubbed the “M&M” Pack, each shoe in the group features a vibrantly colored nubuck and leather upper, complimented by black accenting and a white outsole. Colorways include Del Sol, Varsity Red and Classic Green. Look for the “Candy Pack” to drop at 12:00 a.m. EST tonight here at Eastbay.

Michael Jordan missed nearly the entire 1985-1986 NBA season, suffering a broken foot early in the year. However, he returned in 1986-1987 with what was statistically the best scoring year of his career. Averaging an amazing 37.1 points per game, Michael became the first player to post 3,000 points in a season since Wilt Chamberlain. His footwear weapon of choice for that season? The Bruce Kilgore designed Air Jordan II.
The Jordan II was famously constructed in Italy with premium Italian leather. Both low and high cuts were released in late 1986 and 1987. Interestingly, none of the pairs featured a black base, marking the only time that happened in any of the original runs of the Air Jordan line. Of course, that changed with retro colorways in the 2000s, including a pair that is set to drop here at Eastbay next weekend.
To celebrate the upcoming Air Jordan Retro 2 release, Sole Shots has decided to showcase some of the best Air Jordan 2 photography from the Sole Collector forum and beyond. While the most popular shoe to shoot was undoubtedly the original White/Varsity Red-Black colorway, we also get a look at the “Eminem,” “Doernbecher Charity,” and “Bin23 Premio” pairs as well.
Remember, the Black/White Air Jordan Retro 2 will be available here at Eastbay next Saturday, October 23.

The iconic Air Jordan 2 has been released in a new creative colorway that undoubtedly comes from Michael Jordan’s college years playing for the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Jordan 2 which originally released in 1986, has never been released in this colorway. Aside from the mostly University Blue uppers, black accents add contrasting details to balance out the colorway nicely.
