Jordan Brand’s first ever international footwear design intern at Nike Int. HQ, Jean Khalife designed these F2F2’s under the art direction of, Mark Smith back in 2010. Aimed toward the Asian market, Jean was tasked with creating an appealing shoe for that market, while also maintaining the Jordan Brand DNA.
Keeping the tooling from the original F2F but updating some of the materials, using an ultra resistant rubber outsole and a high density EVA midsole, Jean went to work creating a concept that would fit the task in hand. From Koi fish scale embossed uppers, to a Jordan 11 inspired patent vamp, Jean did a brilliant job of combining design aesthetics to appeal to the Asian market, while staying true to Jordan Brand’s roots.
