Although he’s on the verge of missing the entire 2021-22 NBA season due to a nagging foot injury, it appears that Zion Williamson will have a new signature shoe when he eventually does hit the court again.
The purported Jordan Zion 2 is pictured here courtesy of @Apolloluo1976 on Instagram. You’ll notice from the images that the previously-unseen silhouette features a mid-cut upper similar to its predecessor, but this time it’s equipped with a strap at the forefoot. The strap also features “Zoom Air” branding, which confirms the type of cushioning that will be used. Williamson’s signature logos also appear on the tongue and at the toe.
The sneaker in question was also briefly seen on social media last night when Williamson was spotted wearing the shoe while performing a between-the-leg dunk on his Instagram story.
As of now, Jordan Brand has yet to formally unveil the Jordan Zion 2 but we’ll keep you updated if anything changes.
UPDATE (06/21): Jordan Brand has officially unveiled Williamson’s next signature shoe, the Jordan Zion 2. The shoe will make its debut tomorrow, June 22, in the “Voodoo” colorway followed by the “Hope Diamond” makeup launching on June 30 for $120 each. The shoe’s standout design is the new strobel unit in the midsole, which has been segmented into three sections for a smoother landing on the court. The Jordan Zion 2 also features a performance cup sole that attaches to the upper while working in tandem with the forefoot strap for lockdown and support. Grab a detailed look at both pairs below.
