Inspired by Michael Jordan unveiling exclusive colored-up performance Air Jordans on the hardwood. As his recognizable shoes sparked a worldwide craze, Jordan Brand decided to design Player Exclusives those highly prized by athletes and collectors alike. The Air Jordan 2 Alternate 87 will be constructed out of a black leather upper contrasted by the hits of red placed on several different areas of the upper, including the eyelets, piping, tongue branding, heel and part of the outsole. The black side panels have a nice textured pattern to them that definitely give the shoe a nice feature. Nike branding appears on the heel in black, while the tongue branding of the shoe comes in the form of the Jordan Wings logo.
