Air Jordan extends its partnership with Maison Château Rouge, reworking the AJ2 with a focus on community and heritage. Maison Château Rouge is a label with deep community ties; after all, its name is derived from Paris’ Château Rouge neighborhood, an area which the label often celebrates and draws heavy inspiration from.
With the label’s latest collaboration with Air Jordan, it’s this rich cultural storytelling that’s brought to the forefront. The AJ2 is brought under the spotlight and reworked to reflect community and heritage, from ornate detailing nodding to the brand’s roots, to the “UNITED YOUTH” and “CHICAGO DAKAR PARIS” on the tongues that celebrate global youth culture.
The detail-heavy approach continues elsewhere, with brogue-inspired perforations and serrated edging at the uppers completing the elevated aesthetic.
