The first Michael Jordan shoe that transformed basketball and street style forever. The Air Jordan High ‘Shadow 2.0’ unveiled as part of the Air Jordan Summer ’21 collection.
A discreet difference to the original at first, but you can recognise the flip on the original shadow colourway with a closer look. Super clean colour blocking with the black, smoke grey and white. Unflawed stitching to match the lighter grey nubuck, an alteration from the OG.
Classic Michael Jordan wings emblem on the lateral ankle collar, keeping up with the original is the blackout nylon tongue, completed with Nike tab. The black and white contrast nicely on the soles of the high top silhouette

Now we all know the impact that social media has on our everyday lives. It brought you here, to this blog post. It’s how we communicate, how we shop, how some of us build our careers and even how we find love. But have we ever thought about the impact it has had on art?
Unit London, founded in 2013 by 2 young artists wanted to “break down barriers of elitism” and include everyone in contemporary art. They’ve teamed up with Avante Arte to hold a free exhibition in London of art popularised on Instagram. Fact of the day, it’s reported that “48% of art buyers use Instagram”.
