Air Jordan II Decon: The First Luxury Basketball Sneaker Gets Deconstructed

Air Jordan II Decon: The First Luxury Basketball Sneaker Gets Deconstructed

The Air Jordan I changed the game forever. Given its success, design for its successor could easily have just drafted of its iconic silhouette. However, the Air Jordan II zagged — instead of looking inward (in sport style, performance and make) the shoe took influence from an entirely different space. Made in Italy, the Jordan II connected sport and luxury footwear in a whole new way. Today, luxury sneakers are just as common as traditional basketball pairs, but the first model to earn that description continues to evolve. While the original II represented an exotic design with a cutting-edge mix of material, the new “Decon” version has been stripped down to its essence. The “Decon” II, keeps its 1986 roots but trades leather for three rich shades (and three regional exclusive colorways) of premium suede.

Toronto / UK Artist Gov, Releases Stunning Short Film For New EP
 Gov is an exceptional new voice originally from London UK but now based in Toronto Canada. Hitting the scene in 2016 with his debut EP release “Nights”, the project featured artists such as Amir Obe, Keffaleng and Ye Ali who have all been releasing successful records in the last year as well. Premiering the EP via Complex Music, Gov established a genuine sound that fused elements of grime, trap, R&B and hip hop.

Gearing up to releases his second official EP “The Roses” very soon, Gov has been releasing a string of singles over the past few months. With heavy new drops such as “Body On Me” and “California”, Gov has built on the sound he established with “Nights” and “The Roses” will delve more into an R&B feel with a down tempo electro influence in the production. Production is being handled by several producers, with the majority of the tracks done by RDY and Vino.

The new EP is scheduled to release on May 30th…
