In Jordan Brand news, the Air Jordan 2 Lucky Green has confirmed to be releasing on February 3rd.
ABOUT THE RELEASE: While playing for the Washington Wizards during the 2001-2002 season, Michael Jordan often wore a modified version of the Air Jordan 3 True Blue that feature copper detailing instead of the customary Red accents. This new colorway was known as Micheal’s Air Jordan 3 Wizards player exclusive (PE). Being that it was a PE, it never dropped in stores or was available to the public. That will no longer be the case as Jordan Brand has decided to finally drop this Jordan 3 PE to the public.
