The long holiday weekend may be behind us now, but there are still plenty of excuses to add a new pair of sneakers to your rotation to enjoy for the rest of the summer and beyond. Luckily, there are some great options to consider this week.

What You Need to Know: Artist Nina Chanel Abney is releasing her take on the Air Jordan 2 and Air Jordan 2 Low later this week. Each features a retooled, minimal upper with new paneling—the most obvious portion being a molded heel counter. Premium details like iguana scale leather and the Wings logo on each tongue have been borrowed from the original. The high-top is accented with red, while the low-top opts for green detailing. Each pair comes complete with a large hang tag and packaging displaying Chanel Abney signature art style.
