For the 22nd version of one of the most iconic shoes in history, Nike looked towards the F-22 Raptor jet for inspiration. Main features of this inspiration come in the form of zig-zag stitching for higher durability, air shafts in the heel to release heat, and 3M reflective material on the back.

A diamond framed design on the feel works to avoid rolled heels, and a titanium shank in the midsole provides extra support without increasing the overall weight of the shoe.

Introduced with the Air Jordan XXs, the Independent Podular Suspension (IPS) system returns with the XX2s. Nike has introduced a key difference with the new XX2s as the pods are now color coded to signify what kind of pod is installed, people can choose from a Zoom Air pod, or a shock absorbing encapsulated air pod.

The Air Jordan XX2s is available in two main varieties, the standard white with red and black trim, or in basketball leather.
