The timeless Air Max 2 Strong will make its long awaited return to retail early next year in both original and never before seen color schemes.

One of the first retro releases we'll see in 2013 from Nike Sportswear, the Air Max 2 Strong will make its return in this Phoenix Suns inspired colorway. We see a combination of cool grey and elephant print handling most of the upper, while orange hits the Swoosh and parts of the outsole. Purple finishes off the unique display, hitting the tongue branding, midsole and outsole below.

The "Phoenix Suns" Nike Air Max 2 Strong is scheduled to release January 1st at authorized Nike Sportswear accounts such as Sneaker Politics.
