For the first time in 35 years, the Air Jordan 1 is coming back in its original form, as close to the 1985 release as possible — but it won’t be easy to get.
This latest iteration of the Jordan 1 features a traditional black and red color scheme inspired by the uniforms that NBA icon Michael Jordan wore during his playing days with the Chicago Bulls. The pair sports a black-based leather upper with contrasting red overlays, which sits atop a clean white midsole and red outsole. Longtime sneaker enthusiasts will appreciate that this release will include retro-style packaging, including a drawstring bag that marks each of 23,000 pairs made, along with an original-style hangtag depicting the legendary baller soaring above the Windy City skyline.
In related Jordan Brand news, the company is planning to release several pairs of sneakers for next week’s NBA All-Star Weekend along with a new Air Jordan 3 Retro SE “Unite,” which is being released exclusively in Chicago.
