Terrible First ResponseA retro white and black version of the Air Jordan II’s was released in 1994 with limited quantities. The Air Jordan II’s suffered the same fate as the Air Jordan I’s when they were first re-released. The Retro Air Jordan II sold very poorly and many of these sneakers ended up in the clearance section of several retailers.
The second releaseIn 2004, the retro Air Jordan II was re-released and sold very well. The popularity of the Retro Air Jordan II lead to the release of low-top versions of the Air Jordan II’s in 2005.
