Yesterday, Jordan revealed via their blog a first look at the new Air Jordan Retro 2 shoe which resulted from a collaboration with Vashtie Kola. What they failed to mention, however, is that the partnership is groundbreaking; Vashtie is the first female to personally design a shoe for the legendary brand! As you may know, Vashtie Kola is already a very accomplished artist, videographer, fashion designer, and all-around cool chick. So the collaboration makes perfect sense.
She seems to have borrowed from the aesthetic of her own Violette brand to create a spin on the Jordan 2 that’s especially for the ladies; a lavendar colorway with violet stitching and sole, metallic silver midsole, and even more hints of silver specks throughout the laces.
Whether or not you’re into sneakers, we have to applaud Vashtie for being a pioneer in women’s sneaker design for such an iconic brand. And if these Jordan 2’s are right up your alley—be sure to pick up a Limited Edition pair when they are released to the public on October 2nd.
