For their latest collaboration with Jordan Brand, Union Los Angeles leaves their mark on the Air Jordan 2, adding to the two brands’ long list of collaborative sneakers. Check out StockX’s extensive catalog of accessories and apparel to help you put together A Perfect Fit for these two popular kicks.

Similar to the late Virgil Abloh’s 2021 iteration of the Off White x Jordan 2 Low, Union’s own Jordan 2 collaboration tackles the challenge of retelling the past to an audience that has much to learn about the sneaker’s impact on Michael Jordan’s game and his sneaker empire. With a capsule titled “The Future Is Now”, Union Los Angeles “wanted to juxtapose what some futuristic gear might look like after it has been worn and patina’d,” says the Los Angeles brand. The collection introduces two fresh new takes of the Bruce Kilgore-designed sneaker, with Rattan and Grey Fog colorways of the Jordan 2 leading the pack, alongside slides, apparel, and other accessories. Each pair of the Air Jordan 2 Union features lightly faded suede uppers while perforated details showcase the sneaker if it were designed in the future. Additional leather patches with joint Union and Jumpman logos appear on the ankle and tongue of the shoe, showing off the partnership between the two brands.

Palace CK1 Crew Wheat

London streetwear and skateboard brand, Palace, known for their brash and witty designs, recently partnered with Calvin Klein, utilizing their calm and cool aesthetics on their garments and accessories. This collaboration produced a collection of basics from bralettes to tees to even a pair of Vans, all showcasing a similar look and feel that comes with Calvin Klein’s products. Another standout piece from the collection is the Palace CK1 Crew Wheat, which would be a solid option when looking for something to match with the Jordan 2 Union Rattan. The Palace CK1 Crew sports both Palace and Calvin Klein logos with minimalistic-styled embroidery on the chest. The crewneck’s Wheat color has a pale yellow hue to it, which would match the patinated undertones of the Rattan Unions.

Prada Nylon Buck Hat Astral Blue

Bucket hats are back in the mainstream, so if you’re looking to stay on trend while matching the Grey Fog Jordan 2s, then look no further than this Prada Nylon Buck Hat Astral Blue. Prada’s latest bucket hat has been seen on the heads of some of the most stylish celebrities like Rihanna and A$AP Ferg, making the hat one of the top accessories for the summer. The Astral Blue colorway of the Nylon Bucket matches the understated and aged blue colors of the Grey Fog Jordan 2s, while also bringing a luxe look to the classic basketball sneaker.

Gallery Dept. Souvenir T-Shirt Cream/Orange & Baby Blue

Even though artist Josué Thomas’ Gallery Dept. brand will soon be closing permanently, many of the brand’s essential pieces can still be found readily available on StockX. Two essential t-shirts that will look the part for both Air Jordan 2 Union colorways are perfect for warmer days ahead. The Gallery Dept. Souvenir T-Shirt in both Cream/Orange and Baby Blue look as though they were both made specifically for the recent Jordan Union collab. Each shirt’s color shares a resemblance to the Rattan and Grey Fog Union colorways, making them both great choices for each pair of Js.

Supreme Burberry Denim Trucker Jacket Washed Blue

For those wanting a transitional option for some of the breezier days in spring, then this Supreme x Burberry Denim Trucker Jacket Washed Blue might be the piece for you. Earlier this year, Supreme collaborated with the fashion house Burberry for a collection of items, which included a set of Denim Trucker Jackets. This Washed Blue colorway features a faded denim look throughout, adding a pre-worn aesthetic similar to the Grey Fog Unions. Supreme and Burberry logos can be found embroidered on the back and front of the jacket as well, adding high-end style to your fit.

Rhude Terry Trackside Shorts Orange

Show off your legs while staying color-coordinated with the Rhude Terry Trackside Shorts Orange. Last year, Rhude collaborated with the McLaren Racing Team on a capsule of products, which included these summer-ready shorts. These shorts boast a soft terry cloth material, allowing for all-day wear that can easily transition from the beach to the streets. The orange pairs well with the aged colorway of the Union Rattans, as similar hits of orange also appear on the Jordan 2s.
