Jordan Brand has announced the highly anticipated release of Luka Dončić’s second signature shoe, the Luka 2. Building upon the success of the Luka 1, this new iteration is designed to enhance on-court performance, focusing on efficient speed while ensuring comfort and balance – qualities that Luka himself values in a shoe. The Luka 2 is specifically tailored to accommodate multidirectional movements, including Luka’s signature step-back move.
“I still can’t believe I have my own signature shoe with Jordan Brand, and now we’re already on the Luka 2,” Dončić states. “The technology keeps getting better, and I hope people feel the same special connection with this one that I have.”
Drawing inspiration from Luka’s unique and deceptive playing style, Jordan Brand has combined their exclusive innovations, the full-length Formula23 and IsoPlate, in the Luka 2. These technologies work in synergy with the new medial Cushlon 3.0 wedge foam to provide optimal foot control, quick acceleration, and enhanced traction during pivotal moments on the court.
The Luka 2 boasts a range of captivating colorways, each with its own distinct details. Notably, the ‘Lake Bled’ colorway pays homage to Luka’s home country of Slovenia and features sustainable materials, aligning with Jordan Brand’s commitment to eco-friendly practices.
“I hope my journey, from a kid in Slovenia dreaming of playing in the NBA, can inspire people everywhere to go after their dreams and stay true to themselves no matter what.”
