Early on November this year, Sneaker News hinted that Jordan will be paying tribute to Spike Lee’s film, “Do The Right Thing”. Knowing Jordan, paying tribute to anyone means making a gorgeous pair of sneakers in order to commemorate something or someone. In this case, Jordan has decided to release the Air Jordan 2 “Radio Raheem” in honor of the film’s character.
Air Jordan 2 Retro Radio Raheem
Color:Black/Fire Pink-Photo Blue-Atomic Orange
Release Date:January 9, 2016
Radio Raheem is indeed a memorable character that stands out in the film with his penchant to carry around his boombox. He also made quite an impression wearing the gaudy “LOVE” and “HATE” four-fingered rings on his hands symbolizing the fine struggle between those two emotions and the T-shirt – which colors actually play a definite role on the colorways of the Jordan Radio Raheem – with its bold blend of pink, blue, black, and orange.
Slated as a special release, the AJ2 Radio Raheem is a clean pair of sneaker with the dominant black tumbled leather upper. But how exactly does the Radio Raheem looks like? A few highlights on the shoes are done on different colors of blue, pink, as well as orange with the blue being more prominent than the rest.
Parts of the shoes’ leather upper and heels are accented in blues while the three eyelets on the higher part of the sneakers are designed in a multicolored set of blue, pink, and orange. The finishing touch of the shoes is the clean white outsole while the customary Air Jordan Wings logo is found on the tongue.
While the Air Jordan 2 Radio Raheem is slated to make its debut in the Spring of 2016, collectors and Jordan heads can buy their pairs earlier than the official Jordan release date right on eBay. However, this might become a problem since the available sizes are for sure limited.
Further updates also revealed that the AJ2 Radio Raheem is will be part of Air Jordan’s new collection, the “Brooklyn 80” so Jordan heads and fans can expect more releases similar to this one. Further rumors also hinted that this retro pair will not be the end of the Do The Right Thing Sneakers that Jordan Brand will be working on for sure in the next year. If this will be the same as the Looney Tunes collection that Jordan Brand provided this year, then there is really more sneakers to expect along this release.
Right now, the Air Jordan 2 Radio Raheem will be available on Jordan Brand stores worldwide on January 9, 2016.
