Taking Flight: Air Jordan 2 “Wings” Honors Howard “H” White’s Legacy

Jordan Brand takes flight once again with its latest addition to the high-top sneaker lineup. Introducing the Air Jordan 2 “Wings,” a captivating creation as part of the Jordan Wings Program for the Summer 2023 season. This release is a special tribute to the esteemed Howard “H” White, Vice President for Nike Inc. and the visionary behind the nationally acclaimed Nike youth movement, Believe To Achieve.


In a nod to White’s pivotal role in bringing Michael Jordan to Nike, the Air Jordan 2 “Wings” celebrates his enduring legacy. The shoe embraces a striking color scheme of white, malachite, and black. Crafted with the signature finesse of Jordan Brand, the high-top silhouette showcases a white leather upper adorned with side panels that beautifully resemble wings, adorned with a feather print. The meticulous attention to detail continues with black laces, an inner lining, and a midsole that feature vibrant green accents, creating a visually captivating contrast. The crowning touch comes in the form of a translucent heel, adding an element of intrigue and style.

To pay homage to Howard “H” White, the shoe incorporates thoughtful design elements. An extra set of laces is included, featuring the empowering words “Power” and “Belief” printed on the tips. Additionally, an “H” graces the heels and insoles, serving as a subtle yet meaningful reminder of White’s indelible influence.


The Air Jordan 2 “Wings” is set to soar into select Jordan Brand retailers and online at Nike, retailing for $210 USD. Mark your calendars for June 10th, when this extraordinary tribute will be available for sneakerheads and collectors alike.
