The BMF Kicks & Sportswear Take >>
The Air Jordan 2 Retro ‘Iron Purple’ is a true purple lover’s dream, as it features dual shades of violet with Iron Purple and Dark Purple. Those hues make the shoe itself a real beauty with black and Infrared 23 accenting the dominant hues – it reminds of a something Prince would wear if he were into sneakers. There’s lots of visual stimulation that emits from the shoe that give it a premium feel, with elephant print, paint splatter, and textured full-grain of leather. The Iron Purple version of the Air Jordan 2 Retro wins with its posh, lush looks.
