When They Should Release: February 7, 2017 (30th anniversary of the 1987 Slam Dunk Contest)

Forget the faux iguana, forget the lack of a Swoosh. The best thing about the original Air Jordan IIs was that little "MADE IN ITALY" tag on the inside of the tongue. For lots of people in 1987, those Jordans were their first taste of Italian-made luxury. And now, with people willing to pay over a G (retail!) for Kanye x Louis, the time seems ripe for a stitch-for-stitch retro. Waiting for the anniversary of MJ's first slam-dunk title seems appropriate, but man, that's a long wait.
