Although his best friend, rap superstar Kanye West, is down with Adidas, designer and Chicago native Don “Don C” Crawley has a collaboration coming out this weekend with Jordan Brand.
The Air Jordan 2 Retro Just Don arrives Saturday and will retail for $650. The shoe is also available in grade-school sizes, which retail for $350.
Jordan Brand first collaborated with Don C’s upscale hat label, Just Don, last year. For the second collaboration, the designer and the brand have reimagined the iconic Air Jordan 2 silhouette, using quilted leather to give the shoe a luxurious feel.
The shoe predominantly uses the brand’s beach color, with highlights coming in Nike’s metallic gold and university red colors. The Just Don branding can be found on insoles, and “Just Don” and “23” is printed in metallic gold on university red tabs on the inside of the tongue.
Also included with the sneaker collaboration is what Don C is known for: a limited-edition, lavish red hat with the classic Jordan wings branding. The hat only comes with the purchase of men’s-size sneakers.
Jordan Brand had three basketball releases over the weekend, including the Air Jordan Retro 1 Low black and white, and the Chinese New Year collection that boasts an Air Jordan 5 Retro and a Jordan Super.Fly 4.
