After the black and white original colorway and a "Phoenix Suns" look, the Nike Air Max 2 Strong returns in an all new colorway being dubbed "Grape" with its likeness to a certain Air Jordan V colorway.

A mid-90's basketball court staple, the Air Max 2 Strong Hi originally made popular by David Robinson gets a color-up in 'White/Violet Force-Atomic Teal' reminiscent of the Charlotte Hornets, making it suitable for another top center of the time in Alonzo Mourning. 

The "Grape" Air Max 2 Strong will be available beginning this Saturday, March 9th at select Nike Sportswear retailers for $150.
